|BooBunny: It's tough to say for certain which jurisdictions are safe. For example, as recently as last fall, I read in a respected journal that Panama would be the last country to share banking info, because it was in such a strong political position as being the home of the Canal that everybody needs.

Not even six months later, Panama signed the deal.
So, here are a couple of links that include the OECD white and grey lists as tax havens, as well as some analysis of different country's privacy laws.
It's interesting to note that Panama is listed as a tax haven on both of these links, which ain't true anymore.
drose: WU is an interesting option. It does avoid the banking system, so the UIGEA does not apply. However, WU got some pressure several years ago to stop dealing with offshore gambling companies, so they self-regulate and will not process gambling transfers.
However, there is no way to for them to know its a gambling payment unless you tell them, so don't tell them, and you should be fine.
