    Either verb "transfer" or "send" is fine. But you need to say "the money," not "a money."

    Re: about transfer!

    Welcome to the forums.

    Also remember that sentences start with capital letters, so it's Did, not did.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Because "money" is usually uncountable.
