I wanted to transfer 120k~ from my account at cua at their branch to another aussie bank, they told me can do 100k max in branch... but I can call the call centre and do it over the phone for over 100k once a supervisor in the call centre authorises me... what a load of crap I know this would be a offshore call centre. I already know how this story can go. Sorry sir wrong account was specified by you over the phone, the recording is unavailable however to check. The transaction is on hold pending review. In the branch you can see on paper have a paper receipt and verify the recipients bsb and account number, all civilised without the need to call india. Anyway funny they didn't have a limit on a bank cheque so I got one and waited a few days to clear no issues.Just bought another truck recently.
Asked the owner how do you want to be paid EFT or cheaue.
The later he said. I'll just take the cheque to the bank and there will be no problems.
After reading these two horror stories i am glad he went with the cheque.
Had it cleared the same morning and I drove off with the truck.
Two happy chappies.
This particular system made no sense
