I opened a pak rupee account in Standard Chartered Bank a few days ago. I mainly opened it because i wanted to withdraw money from moneybookers. I added my scb bank account in moneybookers and made a withdrawal of $ 15 to verify my newly opened account on february 5, 2010. On february 18 i found in moneybookers website that my withdrawal has returned. Then i received this message from moneybookers in my mail.
"Thank you for contacting the Moneybookers customer service.
Please be kindly informed that your bank withdrawal has been returned to your Moneybookers account.
Please be also informed that Standard Charter bank does not process bank withdrawals in USD currency, sent by Moneybookers.
Therefore, you should register the details of a different bank account.
Please keep in mind that the bank account should not be in Standard Charter bank or in a bank, which uses Standard Charter bank as intermediary bank."
then googling i found this, http://twitter.com/nidarasheed/status/9008596252
Now i am thinking to give United Bank Limited a try. Please tell me which bank are you using to withdraw funds from moneybookers?
