You Can Now Send Money Straight From Gmail in the UK

By Gerald Lynch on at

Google has just made it easier than ever to send money direct to your favourite Nigerian email spam bot prince by integrating Google Wallet into its Gmail email service.

UK users can now try the Send Money in Gmail feature, letting them send and receive moolah direct from Google's desktop webmail service. So long as you've got a Google Wallet account set up and associated with your Gmail account, it's as easy hitting the attachment icon and clicking the "£" sign button. The recipient doesn't even have to have a Gmail address to receive money, and you can also use the service to request a payment from anyone that is holding back your cut of the drug money owes you a couple of quid.
