EXOGEN: INDONESIAN RUPIAH BANK STORY FROM STAGE3ALPHA MEMBER WWW.S3ALPHA.NET
NOTE: THIS IS AT THE BANK WE TOLD YOU ABOUT IN OCTOBER
I went to XXX to open an account with them and to exchange my Rupiah. They was not going to allow me to exchange my Rupiah, because I did not have an account with them and then I had to have an account with them for 6 months in order to exchange any foreign currency..
However, They allowed me to exchange my Indonesia Rupiah and open a checking account on the same day..
The lady told me that she would send my Rupiah to XXXXXX to the Currency Foreign Currency Department and my account would be credited within 5-7 business days.. If I had already had an account with them, it would have taken 24-48 hours..
The rate was low, but I did it anyway hoping that the value would change soon. They only charge $10 for anything under $1,000 and $20 for anything over $1,000 to exchange foreign currency.
The only thing they are accepting at the moment is Indonesia Rupiah. I am hoping that they will exchange it at a revalued rate before I it hits my account. Currently the rate for 100k Rupiah is $7 and I am believing that the rate will change before my account gets credited. I will keep you posted on what happens next.
Thanks for keeping us informed.
