[quote=“djvaso, post:13, topic:1604”]I am deeply sorry for this misunderstanding :’(. I haven’t even slightest idea to offend you.
I came from the poor country with second class banks but it is very easy to get some kind of debit cards (Visa,Maestro). It works like this: enter in the bank, express the will to open a account and get debit cards, fill some papers, sign the contract, and after one or two weeks one can get card with which can pay all over the world. There is no need to receive salary on this account.[/quote]
That’s OK, amigo. No problem. I am sorry that I misunderstood you.
Yes, what you describe is the way a debit card is supposed to work, I agree. But, now, some US Banks are making it very hard to use debit cards for transactions outside of the USA.
They either block the transaction completely, as does my bank, or they charge an extremely ridiculous service fee for overseas transactions.
All the best to you!
