Pls guys,I need ur advice or suggestions. I made a transaction on Ebay today for an verizon iphone 4s which the seller stated has a clean imei. I requested for the imei from the seller and checked with verizon and was told the iphone was reported stolen. I payed via paypal linked to GTB naira mastercard and GTB is yet to effect the payment as my account details is still the same. How can stop GTB from effecting payment cuz am no more interested in going through with the transaction. No response from seller yet and have opened a dispute on paypal. My fear guys is the differing exchange rates our banks use when issuing refunds. I no want lose money unnecessary.

you are definitely going to loose money if you seek for a refund . banks normally charge two rates. the rate at which they buy and the rate at which they sell. the former is always lower than the latter .
In the first instance they are selling dollar to you-the rate is higher. Now they are buying dollar from you -the rate is lower

Tho it's ridiculous, because i don't know how much is in the account, transfer out money so it is less than the amount you will be debited. Say if it's 100 dollars, leave only 10 or 15K in the account. Transaction should fail.

Funny thing is Ecobank never did this to me. They always refunded with the new dollar rate, sometimes to their own disadvantage.

PayPal into my Diamond Bank account took 3 business days. Refund done on Saturday, got it on Wednesday. So expect it anytime from Wednesday.
So I'll say 3 to 5 business days. But don't be surprised if it takes up to 10 business days (2 weeks). Maximum I've waited is 17 actual days lol. Not paypal tho.
Anyways, if you don't get it by Friday morning contact Diamond Care.

PS: Brace yourself to lose money, Diamond Bank charged me 204.08 on Paypal and refunded me at the rate of 194.02. Sad really.

if the money is still in your total balance, just cancel payment on PayPal... I don't think you should lose any money

At the time of this post, paypal had already completed the transaction and seller shipped just 4hrs after I made payment. Turned out the problem was from verizon. It has been sorted out. Thanks

Btw, are u sure it's a Master or VISA Card?

Their requirements on their website are:

Filled in account opening form.
Two reference forms.
Two sample signature cards properly signed by each signatory to the account.
Two recent clear passport photographs of each signatory to the account with their names written on the back.
Each signatory's current international passport or driver's license.
Proof of residential address such as electricity, water or waste bills (original must be shown to your account manager) or we will send someone to visit to your address

Did they ask for all these? Two Reference forms?

Lol. Yes. Made a mistake, dats why i made the other post with screenshots.

By the way, i just left Stanbic and i created a new account. Mhen, the form filling process is a long one oh! Like 4 pages.

Anyways, i can't get my own card till next week Tuesday or Even Wednesday as Friday and Monday are public holidays, i think. Good Friday, Easter Monday. They give only MasterCard. No Verve, and no VISA. Their VISA is Credit card and of course current account only.
