HI All,

Review published ago

HI All, Sorry, this is not a hunky dory story of how satisfied customer I am. It's rather an incident how Remittoindia is cheating people in the name of gift voucher. As some of the users remember, Remittoindia came with an advertisement in November-December which committed various gift vouchers when somebody transfers the designated amount. Fortunately, I took screenshot of that offer and saved it carefully. I followed all terms and conditions and was eligible for the gift voucher on the cumulative amount. However, when I received the voucher few days back, it was of a lesser amount. I sent numerous emails to highlight the issue and have always got negative reply from the team. I received replies from Augustine Lobo, Somit Sarkar and lastly Xavier Fernandes. They, for some fictitious reason, unable to understand what "Cumulative" amount means and always started arguing. But, when I emailed them the screenshot of the offer, they assured me that the issue will be resolved. Roughly 2 weeks have passed, and I still await the correct voucher. Hence, I would advise the fellow Remittoindia users to avoid the trap of vouchers. If you really need to transfer money, do it only for the sake of transfer and forget the voucher - there is a high chance that you will be cheated by Remittoindia.

Yukti has been very very helpful and patience while I was busy and then she asked me for alternate times to talk to explain the benefits in detail. I got the best value for transaction, which I can't imagine somewhere else. Thank you very much Remit to India and specially to Yukti! Update: I was looking for post transaction help and have not been paid any attention at all. Pre transaction I have been called immediately after request but not all after 5 hours and two request. So I would like to say that they don't care post transaction. Hope you will find it useful.

Review published ago

Wanted to post since Nov 2019 as i was waiting for company reply or any applogy for poor service but no luck. 20 reviews of less than 3 star in Nov itself, i should have done this research before I actually try to do business with remit2india. I Registered my account on 20 Nov 2019, made a transection on 21 nov, untill one week 28 nov no money has been credited in the account. So started raising queries via the portal to find more about that, next day staff called me (even after mentioned in the emailed query that plz update me via the email,due to my work situation,no phone calls) and i could not able to answer that call so they left me an email to contact cust service no. No second callbacks or anything, just received email saying "We request your immediate attention in this regard. We would also like to clarify that we will be able to process the remittance only after we contact you and verify details regarding the transaction" so end up raising another query via the email and finally spoke to a lady she was asking me to verify details My FUll name DOB Email Address Amount Who i am sending Whats my relation to the person Reason for the money transfer Remitter address REmitter status working or not if working whats their profile Remitters DOB like seriously so many personal info I am sending money not applying for Mortgage you peeps,considering the fact i have given them my passport and DL when setting up account. I am sending my own hard earned money to these people not borrowing money or expecting any Witness for loan or anything. This company must shut down. please stay away. Thank you all.
