I have used the International Currency Express, Inc.
to get drafts in Euros. They take credit cards and
the draft is sent to you via regular mail. It takes
about 3 days to get the draft. The last one I had to
get for a Belgium invoice came in 2 days. Their fee

deposit the draft.
I have not asked them about Sk's.
