AVENEL, NEW JERSEY -- Guys, all those using Remit2india please stop so as soon as possible. Firstly, while writing this I need to tell you all that I am not a competitor of Remit2india but a mere customer who has been cheated. I live in NJ. I had transferred 3000 dollars to India and the time I got a mail from Remit2India stating that the transfer is complete and the money has been sent to my account the rates were 50.2. So I should be getting 150000 and more but got 149700.
When I called these guys up they told me that the rate I got is 50 and then there is a transfer charge also. These cheats had told me that I will get the exact amount what I see on the net and there will be no other charges, when I opened my account. I think the economy is going down and Citibank is trying all means to get money to save their ** to be in the market. I will be going ahead and putting this review up in other sites also. Please remember that not to use Remit2India.
One concern I always have is why does our people in India have all sorts of excuses and cheat as much as possible?
Is "Money2India" a govt. organization??? I hope it is true. I requested for money transfer of $500.00 on 30th Sept. I had sent the SSN copy on 5th Oct. Till now there is no progress in my transaction that I made. What are the people doing there? Are they sleeping like Govt. employees?? How many days do they need to verify my SSN?? When I call to Customer care they are telling that usually they will take 24-48 hrs for verification.
Normally Customer care will work 24/7. But Remit2India Customer care works like normal office hours. Normally other banks will take maximum 1 week to complete the transaction. What happened in my case?? Do I need to transfer more than $500.00?? Sorry for that I am poor guy, I can transfer the amounts like this. Please try to process my transaction. Or else shall I have to give any bribes to fulfill your wishes?? If so I need do lot of hard work here. You know here the market very bad. To give bribes to you, I need to rob here.
Yes, Remit2India is worst way to send money to India. They hold your money until the exchange rate drops and they tell you excuses like "You have not made any remit transactions recently that is the reason for the delay." They held my transaction nearly 3 weeks and transferred funds when the rate dropped from 55.36 + bonus 5 paisa to 53.13. When you call customer service they put you on hold for long time. It is a frustrating experience for me also.
