Well I'm in the market of finding a new bank after being with USAA for almost 20 years. What pissed me off you ask? Well, a while back I refi'd my home loan with USAA and set up an automatic payment plan. Among the reasons for the refi was to have a better oversight of this loan, the convenience of seeing it on my online USAA banking website. I like having all my bills in a one stop shop instead of dealing with 15 different website. Pressing on, I know banks sell loans like people change underwear and I asked them if/when they do this my automatic payments will still be made to the owning loan
Not having the best day of my life, but maybe I am getting a little paranoid. I have just been to the bank and noticed a person dressed in a Burqa being served. I say person as it could have been of Any Sex. Now if I had walked in with a Balaclava, my guess is that I would not have been served. Could be wrong
Recently created a BDO bank account. I wired a small amount from my European bank to check how the whole thing works with the online banking and confirm all is smooth before sending a bigger amount. I'm just wondering how much you guys with foreigner banks are paying for a wire transfer. In my case, I had to pay 30€. The testing amount I sent was as little as 10 €. The thing is, I just received around php260. So, around 5,5 euro are missing and that can't be just the exchange rate. Do any of you know how it works with bigger amounts?
I am a regular visitor to Cebu. Would like to start a bank account and put some money in the CD which pays a nice interest. I recall from a conversation with an foreigner in cebu you need to put in the equivalent of $10,000 to 12,000 for a few years. Yes? What ID is required? Best Bank? Risk of loosing money? Can I do this as a visitor? Pros and cons comments appreciated. Lorenz
