I recently widthdraw 20$ from elance in local currency on 20th, Oct. Elance sent me email saying that 1994 PKR will be sent. My bank account is in ABL in Lahore. On 22nd Oct, widthraw request status changed to complete. Despite ABL is directly connected with SWIFT, I received 1709 PKR on 6th Nov.. Branch staff say ABL doesn't charge any fee on inward remittances. ABL's Schedule of Charges also confirms it. My questions are:
Why did I received less money (1709 PKR. Elance sent me 1994 PKR)? Who dedcuted 285 PKR?
Why did money reach me so late? As ABL is directly connected to SWIFT, it should not have taken more a couple of days?
Waiting for your reply.
