That bank? they are too fraudulent. The refunded money should be higher because the dollar rate is high now. Anyway,if they didn't give you a positive answer. send a mail to cpd@cbn.gov.ng and copy access bank. attach your communication with them as evidence. Also try and call them on phone then record your conversation with them as you are asking them question.


So I took up your advise and hoping it pans out well.


Thanks.

I wonder if i still have to fill anymore forms for Mobile and Internet banking after ticking it on the form.

Guess i got my reply. These guys respond fast. Very good. Hopefully they will process refunds as good as Ecobank.

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?

Did Stanbic give you an account number yet? Haven't gotten mine, so not even thinking of card yet.

Thought I had posted this here earlier.

UBA are bloody criminals!

Ordered from amazon about 3 weeks back. Amazon automatically detects the currency your card is in and instead of charging in dollars, they offer the option of billing you in naira to cut out exchange rate fluctuations.

Amazon gave me a rate of 209 but since i have had better rates from UBA in the past, I chose dollars and UBA charged me about 230. About 4 items had shipped before i realized this, so I quickly cancelled the remaining items (amazon only charge your account when the items ship but they place a hold on your account for the required amount immediately you place the order), waited for about 2 days for the hold to clear and then ordered again using amazon's currency converter in naira. Result: UBA still charged 230+.

For a total order of about $1000, i paid about 20k extra for no reason.

Really pissed off, but I just don't have time for them right now. When i'm a lil' bit more settled, I'll face them

Would have switched back to GTB but i have 2 issues with them:

1. It's a current account, COT ruins it .

2. They are fond of double charging or whatever and then returning it after a while (usually at the end of the month). EFF that!

Access bank is looking sexy though.

Thank you very much for the info, but this isn't a GT Bank Rate. Checking out in dollars is the rate. Regardless, every piece of information is welcome. Cheers.
