I had a very bad experience with this site. even after verifying my local bank account , it took 11 working days ( a total of 16 days) to see my amount transferred to India. and guess what, i got the lowest of rates prevailing in those 16 days which was way off what was shown on the site even on the transfer day. to add to this, there was a transfer fee of 2.99 and then local taxes during transfer. in all, i got the worst possible rate when compared with all the other similar services.

I feel mixed about writing this due to the fact that NZForex (OzForex) have always been good when I've dealt with them in the past. However, a recent transaction of $30000 took over 2 weeks to arrive and I was told that delays were sometimes due to 'exotic currencies' being traded. In other words - anything other than USD/GBP/NZD/AUD? Who knows. I lost money due to the timeframe it took and NZForex were not willing to front up and help at all. They just copied in their terms and conditions. The… Read Full Review
