    USA Banking Sucks Compared To UK

    IN UK you can send people money to any bank for free and it is instant including books

    You try and send people money in usa they fukkin kill you with fees and most of time they treat it as a fukkin wire transfer

    Transfer to books is instant if you use a debit card or credit card.
    Transfer from books still takes 3 days unless you use Neteller or Moneybookers.

    The banks here are OK but it still takes them 3 days to clear a cheque/check which is ridiculous.

    JJ just open an account with HSBC or (insert big ass bank here), they have foreign currency interest bearing accounts if liquidity is a concern. If not just go buy some bonds on market dumb shit.

    Yes!!

    JJ, no. Apply and you'll get that rate. BankWest is a decent place to start.

    jjgold i got few tips for you .

    How to Use an ATM Machine




    1. 1
      Use caution when approaching an ATM machine at night, As you approach the ATM, look around for other people especially if the area is poorly lit or hidden behind trees or buildings. Take someone with you if possible(except BrokLanders ), or choose another machine in a safer area.
    2. 2
      Have your card ready before approaching the machine. Don't take time fumbling around in your purse or wallet.
    3. 3
      Make sure no one can see you punch in your PIN number. Shield the keypad with your body.
    4. 4
      Don't count your cash while standing at the ATM. Immediately put it in your pocket or fold it in your hand and walk away.
    5. 5
      At drive-up ATM machines, keep all your doors locked and passenger windows rolled up.
    6. 6
      Always take the receipts with you. Compare your ATM receipts to your monthly bank statement. If you find discrepancies, call the bank.
    7. 7
      If you lose your ATM card, contact the financial institution that issued your card immediately.

    The bill signed last year helped a little in finally improving U.S. Banking but we still have a long ways to go.
