If they close your account don’t get off the phone until you get a supervisor

If you are sending to West Africa they umm close your account immediately without explanation. They had no problem taking the money out of my account and then immediately sending me an email saying that they cancelled my transaction because they determined it was a risk. When I called them for more information they told me they disabled my account (that I literally just opened) and they not only refused to give me an explanation but refused to let me speak to a supervisor. I asked to wait to speak to a supervisor and they told me they didn’t know how many hours I would be waiting and that no one could give me any information. After giving them my bank info, name, address and phone number along with my husbands account info, they took the money from my account and then refused to answer any questions. I told them I was certain the account was closed because I was sending to West Africa and they refused to answer me. I had to threaten to call my lawyer and specifically request for an appeal twice and explain to them that I was happy to give them my photo ID. They just never asked me for it. Finally a supervisor came on the phone after an hour and listed to me, spoke to their risk department, asked me normal questions to ensure I wasn’t making a fraudulent transaction and they finally reopened my account. So be ware, if they tell you there is nothing you can do they are lying.

Hi Licidieci,

I'm glad we were able to review your account eligibility for appeal. We review all accounts and transactions regardless of where they are being sent to and make sure they fall within our terms and conditions as listed on our site. Please provide a case or transaction number if you would like to discuss this matter further so we can locate your account.

Kind Regards,
WorldRemit

FRUSTRATION TIME ,

Unreliable Be Ware

I have it with World Remit! For the past 6 months each time I initiate a transaction to someone in Tanzania, I have to call and babysit the transaction, because there is always an issue where my receiver is not paid in a timely manner. Furthermore there is always misinformation and vague excuses as to why my client did not receive their bank transfer deposit.

This time around I sent a bank transfer deposit on Thursday, and when I checked on Saturday I saw that my client had not been paid, so I called them per usual and they told me that their local partner locked the transaction. They said they will email them to release the funds that day. When I asked why the partner locked the transaction they could not give me an answer, typical! Now a breach has been created between my client and I because their partner locked a transaction without informing them. Here it is Monday and I’m still waiting for my client to receive the transfer.

This company is not reliable for bank transfers at this juncture. Do not use bank to bank transfers.

Be careful

Be careful. The rates are low and the user interface is nicely done. However, if you make frequent transactions or a large transaction - be prepared for problems. Your transaction will be stalled - with no notice to you for hours (days) and no explanation. You have to call or email. If you email, expect to wait at least 6 hours for a response. If you call, prepare to wait on hold for 15 minutes or so. They will request information - copies of your ID, bank statements - over and over again. I’ve supplied the same information three times within the past month alone. I guess you get what you pay for. Western Union, Xoom and MoneyGram cost more, but generally you have much less hassle. The first few transactions will be fine. But once you become a regular user, be prepared. It’s a strange business model to penalize/hassle your best customers. I want to see WorldRemit succeed, but lately I’ve only been annoyed by my usage. Initially i was a fan. Not anymore. That’s a shame, but the marketplace will vote with their dollars. I am.
