Guys, I'm thinking about opening a SCB account for international withdrawals like Odesk, Elance and Moneybookers etc. I have an MCB and Bank Alfalah account and I've used Alfalah for Skrill withdrawals. Unfortunately its VERY slow and i sometimes thought that I had LOST my money... Well... I've heard that SCB is best for international transactions and withdrawals...
I wanna open a current account (or equivalent to that). What i mean here is that I can't pay ANY charges for things i don’t know of. Like my money stays safe in my Alfalah account and there is no interest received on it. I want the same for SCB. Is it possible?
Also tell me if i should open Rupee Current Account or Standard Chartered Saadiq Account?
Finally, would I be able to afford it? Someone told me that they opened an account with 5000 only.
Kindly tell me about the charges charged by SCB on current account... Any kind of information would be GREAT!
