I spent one hour today to make a transfer (I would have used the ATM but the amount was too high). First I tried on my own, they even accepted I fill out the forms in english. I had to write every single number by myself and they even asked me to write the whole amount in letters. As my writing is not so clear they asked me to do it again. They said they couldn’t write it cause of the law… Well, after half an hour of trying I gave up, threw the paper towards them and left the bank angry. I came back with my girlfriend but even with her it took more than 20 minutes. In the end they didn’t like my signature but didn’t insist too much…
Whats weird is that they asked me to “withdraw the money” before transfering it. And this was not a international transfer! So I had to do two forms.
I understand now
- Why even small banks have 12 counters
- Why they close at 3 PM
Anyone else got simliar stories?
