Default Remit2india scammers

Dear All

This is to share with all Remit 2 India - the money transfer people systematiclly hold on to your remittances long periods and making money out of us. Recently I sent a remittances and even after 6 BUSINESS DAYS and 9 DAYS - it has not reached the beneficiary yet - and when you ask questions ALL YOU GET IS ELUSIVE REPLIES BY HALF BAKED TELE MARKETERS.

PLEASE AVOID USING RENIT2INDIA IF YOU CAN.

Use SBI Online GLS. Takes about a week, very reliable and best exchange rate

Ditto with ICICI. It used to be very good. Got greedy.

Use Moneygram whenever you can. Little expensive, but delivered right away.

But using Moneygram for first time is painful, as the Bankers (such as Indian Bank and IOB) are such idiots that the process looks so "Not Instant". Once you have an account, it shouldn't be a big deal.

Lets see how the issue with paypal goes.

Yes.
Go to SBI - Global Link Services Steps are pretty easy to follow.

You will first have to setup your US account (there is a verification process whcih takes 3- 4 days) and then setup beneficiary account.

Thank you. I will register.

If the beneficiary account is a non-sbi account, then will it be deleivered as a demand draft?

If the beneficiary account is non-sbi, then it can be delivered by NEFT, RTGS or via DD.

I used to use Remit2india years back. When I found out that they are ripping me off, I started using ICICI. Lately, ICICI is doing the exact same thing. I don't know whom else to use. Is SBI's exchange rate better than that of ICICI?

I experimented with Remit2India, HDFC Direct Deposit, and Moneydart.

Remit2India is the worst. Whenever you make a huge transaction the money is held hostage till they make a good profit out of it. I used it for about two yrs and switched to Moneydart on friends recommendation. I have been using it since an 1.5 yrs and have no complaints so far.
1) Exchange rate is better than the rest 2) Exchange rate is fixed on the day that you ordered the transaction. 3) There is a fee of $15, but that is a coupon code that brings the rate to $5. 4) You could call and request them to expedite the transaction because of which transaction could be completed in 24hrs (if you call before 2 PM).

HDFC Direct deposit is the worst.

My friend uses SBI NRI account. SBI gives a rate better than that of Moneydart and the transaction time is also than 24 hrs per the process that he walked me through. It was pretty impressive. SBI requires that you maintain $1000 deposit to avoid transaction fee.

Default I use Western Union

Western Union is quick for transfer to India, but the payout is only in cash or if about Rs. 50 K then check.
Xoom.com give lesser exchange rates than WU, but the amount can be put into account directly.
