This Service allows you to send a telegram anywhere in the world using
credit card, personal check, or a PayPal account. The following are the terms and conditions for use of this Service. Please read them carefully.
The Service allows you to enter your own message and designate its intended recipient, and configure that message into a telegram that will be sent to any valid physical address. You are responsible for obtaining and maintaining all computer hardware, software and communications equipment needed to access the Service, and for paying all third party access charges (e.g., ISP, telecommunications) incurred while using the Service.

Cablegrams are international telegram messages that are routed to the
destination country’s local telegraph office and are generally delivere
within 24 hours of filing. Cablegrams include telegrams routed to ships at
sea whereby the ship’s communications office is analogous to a destination
country’s local telegraph office. Cablegrams are accepted at the SENDER’S
RISK. Carrier only guarantees receipt by the destination country’s local
telegraph office. Then, it is the responsibility of the destination
country’s local telegraph office to handle the delivery in a timely
fashion in accordance with its own regulations and procedures. Such
delivery by the destination country’s local telegraph office may include
postal delivery. Sometimes a copy of a telegram is posted in addition to
the regular delivery. There is no additional charge for such a copy.
Carrier does not receive a Report of Delivery to the
addressee from the destination country. Instead, it receives only a
computer confirmation of receipt by the international carrier office.
Cablegram service is billed on a per word basis with a flat base rate.
