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

    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.
