Hi Dave

I am in the process of setting up drips from the UK using the Moneypaper( I do subscribe) I have chosen my stocks, done all my research, set up dummy portfolios to monitor, set up a US$ bank account and went for it on line. I obviously chose stocks that allowed foreign investors but I received an email from customer services saying that we need a US bank account. I swiftly replied saying the account was a US$ based in England and is this a problem. I have not heard anything back yet. I am concerned that I am going to miss this months run if I need to send a cheque. If I cannot use this bank account electronicially what does the Foreign Investors Yes bit mean?

If there are any foreign investors out there can you please let me know how you approach this drip wotsit. Looking further ahead I'm hoping to set up automatic direct debits with the transfer agents each month without the need to send cheques accross the atlantic.

Thanks and keep Fooling
