Thank you for your question, Anne. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
There are two ways to send the money and protect yourself. First, you can send a 'certified check' for that amount--most banks will charge you from $20 to $30 for the check. This way the funds are guaranteed but the funds do not come from your account. The other option is a 'wire' transfer--for that you can contact the other party and ask for their bank information. But if you do not want to have contact with them, the certified check is likely best.
