I needed some means to transfer money from abroad so Bank Alfalah / Standard Chartered were a few choices. Since most of the guys i deal with are ‘found’ in either Ireland or other British territories, so Standard Chartered was more suitable. A week ago opened an account on temporary basis starting from PKR 10,000. And since then I’ve been receiving calls from “Naila” (i don’t know how many Nailas’ SCB has employed ) Anyhow the call was for get the balance raised upto 21000. Not only it was annoying to talk to their representatives convincing them, “i don’t have got much time to come”.
My routine is really messed up. Iam sleeping at 5am nowadays so one can expect me out of mind at 9am in the morning. Exactly 5 hour ago I deposited 11000 to fill up SCB’s mouth and to get the checks and debit card (the picture of a lady carrying something did suck). No matter how much i abuse SCB, I’ve to admit they got some professional guys/gals. They talk nicely .. they treat like they do care. The internet banking i found is the best if compared to UBL’s, Askari’s, E-trade’s ibanking. The SMS service do get sticky sometimes but i think its more cause of my djuice (no its not fun to be young, if you have djuice).
I’ll edit the post to put some more info on if it was easy or not to get the ACH direct deposit working with SCB. For now they haven’t disappointed me.. not one bit !
