Remit2Indiaremit2india cheating customers!

K Review updated:

This is an experience I wanted to share with a broader community about the ripoff I had when transferring some funds overseas using Remit2India service whose funds transferrer is Citibank. These companies have been taking customers for granted and fooling them with advertising false exchange rates and transferring money at much lower rate than advertised on the website. I transferred $2001 using their service to my NRE account in India on 8th November.However the funds got converted on 13Nov and they have transferred the money @34.38 when it was advertised on the Net @ 35.16.

Upon following this with their team they accepted the mistake over the phone but sent a email telling that they wont transfer the balance. This is just a rip off of innocent customers who falls prey to fraudulent companies like this. I would not recommend Remit2India service to anyone and I would be taking up legal actions against this company so that it doesn't trap any other customers with their false advertisement.

They take Australian customers for granted and don't provide customer service. I have been reading loads of complaints about this company online and its time that some action needs to be taken. I would strongly recommend ICICI Bank's Money to india service as they don't rip off customers like this and provide a much better level of service.

DON'T SEND MONEY OVERSEAS USING because next time you wouldn't even know if your money would reach to your loved ones. This company does nothing else except for promising to give better exchange rates and advertise cr*p on their website.

    I have a similar experience but mine is a little different.

    They did it 3 times to me. In March 2006, October 2007 and November 2007.

    Every time they promised to send the difference but never did.
    Will you believe one transaction was of March 2006 and they didn't send the difference yet. I thought they would have sent the difference since they promised but I guess you just will have to go to a India to get your money.

    I strongly agree with above posters. Its been over 2 weeks that money has been debited my foreign account but has not reached my NRI bank account yet. I have already called them thrice and sent them numerious emails but only response I got is "apology for the deley" without any explaination. Their customer service centre is pathatic. Customer service have only authority to write to [email protected] Relationship manager is even more kind of gem. She kept calling me for promotion but has disappeared since I have intiated the tranaction. Once I received back my money I am done with them…BEWARE PEOPLE!!!

    Remit 2 india is the worst money transfer service. They do not act on your transaction for 3 to 4 days. They cheat you out of excess fees that is not told up front. Remit 2 India are cheats. AVOID!!!

    remit2india is really ripping off your money.

    i got transferred 100 pounds to India and it gave me rate of rs. 75.38 compared to current rate of rs 79.50

    i would prefer western union which gives good rate and instant transfer...

    stay away from using remit2india services.

    Similar situation with my last four transactions. On my last transaction they have paid me with 61.45/dollar but the conversion rate on the website is 61.74/Dollar. This is cheating.

    The ultimate fraudulent company not responding to any customer queries.. Left alone after initiating transfer.. No updates since 10 days.. Not sure what to do.. Worst ever service I have seen... I have to look for options to bringup about their fraudulent service.

    I have not received referral bonus from remit2india. Every week they just send an email telling we are looking into your case and will get back to you earliest. This has been going for 2 months.
