Stole my money

Review published ago

Rubbish customer service I tried my first transection of $50 and it went through fine in 2 days. So I trusted the company and initiated another transaction of $2000. This time they block my transection and I didn't receive my money. They dont reply to emails and their phone number does not work. They steal my money

I have been dealing with Remit2india from last 3 years. Unfortunately, I transferred money from Australia to India on 17/11/2020, the transfer had not reached with receiver. I have been trying to login but account locked. I have been looking to contact via email but sorry to say no response after 4 days of emails. I have looked for customer care number but nothing is working. At least a response email to assure would be helpful. But no reply yet after 5 days. Remit2india A/c 2490087

I echo many people's review

Review published ago

I echo many people's review. It is scary there is no people to talk to. Asking too much information and back and forth in email. I don't know if a Bot is responding or human. We need to get the employee list make sure they are not selling the information to scamsters. Has anybody alerted authorities ? I have successfully transferred with them in the past.. but recently it appears new management might be different. Hopefully Bot does not repond to this review but provide a contact number of a human being instead. Following text is as a response to Remit2India response. I don't understand what logistics you are suggesting. issue you are are running that can't run a call center. It's shame. They use spam us a lot. Despite back and forth about what documents(20 emails). It was frustrating there is nobody to talk to could n't get my transfer done. It's shame. I am really concerned about the operation you are running.

Below average. There are better options available.

Review published ago

The exchange rates are very poor. There are other better options available. R2I rates are always Rs500 to Rs1000 less than other services. Customer care is also not great. takes ages to reply. I referred a friend and got the referral credit. Due to poor exchange rate i couldn't send money for few months. After few months i got an email saying that my referral credit is going to expire. They never mentioned anywhere that there is an expiry date for referral credit. Luckily they shutdown their services before i could transfer and i sent an email asking my credit reinstated once they restarted services. Also they show 2 rates while booking a transaction on the first page. But when the transaction is confirmed the lowest rate is applied. The rates are even better with other services even with a transaction fees applied. Transferwise, Remitly, Instarem are better options. Update. Just saw reply from remit2india. Thought of clarifying some facts. Your rates are not at all competitive. For the last 3 days 1AUD is around Rs 52.5 while other providers are giving 53 to 54. Even now 13/11/2020 when i checked you have the same rate of Rs 52 while others are giving more than Rs 54. Even with the transaction fees added their rates are better than yours. Where did you mention the expiry date of the referral credit. I didn't see it on the referral ad you posted. It was not mentioned in the email too which i got after successful referral. I checked the faq section and there also i couldn't find it. Your guaranteed rate, indicative rate thing is just to confuse the customer. I selected the guaranteed rate and on the next page the total conversion is done according to the lower indicative rate. So even if i select the guaranteed rate you are giving me only the indicative rate which is lower. This is actually cheating and many people actually don't notice this and complete the transaction. Even though the difference between these rates are very very less like 0.05.its cheating and confusing users.

I sent money from Australia to India

Review published ago

I sent money from Australia to India, they have already debited my Australian account (No acknowledgement mail sent) and it's been 24 hours yet I haven't got anything in my Indian account. Based on my previous experience I didn't compare anywhere and blindly sent it through remit2india. I am really worried. Remit2India is too quick to reply here but haven't got any reply on my mail. Legends. There they take 24 to 48 hours to reply and just few minutes here. Interesting.

Didn't received the promised voucher nor could I access my account.

Review published ago

I was wondering what was happening with this company for a while - my preferred platform for money transfer - remit2india. 1. As part of one of their promotions, they promised me Coles Vouches which I never received. 2. I cannot even access my account now, the mobile app is asking me to prefill my details and I can enter only US addresses. Shame on you r2i platform

by MANJITH

Promotion is not honored

Review published ago

Team has committed for sending most of the promotions\ Gift vouchers 30 days after a successful transition. However, team did not share any promotional gift cards since then. As a customer, I believe I should not to keep on following up on Why the promotions weren't been sent through? Customer Id - 2749264

Insecure and inconsistent banking, not trustworthy

Review published ago

A company with inconsistent policies and a buggy website. Not FIT to transact in the UK with their low-standard service/policies. Their website has different policies while customer service write/say different things. They pretend to be a fast/easy money transfer website but in fact their verification process has a lot of loopholes. ID verification process on website is different to what they say on email. The people doing ID verification and phone are not in the UK and do not have any knowledge of IDs, life or processes in the UK. I wonder why our personal documents are checked an received outside of the UK. After registering and entering personal details on their website, they immediately allowed me to make a transfer without completing the verification and then held my money for 3 days and later cancelled the transaction when I challenged them. The money never received the recipient and I ended up wasting my 3-4 days in anticipation that the transfer will happen. Their money transfer process is very ODD when using net banking. Every time I wanted to make a remittance, I have to login twice to net banking. First time, the mediator company asks to give access to my bank account and as per my bank's text message, this access is "UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE"! After giving access, the mediator company then ass to login again and this time to actually make the transfer from my uk bank account. The two-time login is unnecessary and specially giving access to a third party to see balance "until further notice" sounds really INSECURE, scary and unnecessary. Overall, Remit2India has a buggy website that doesn't have the correct policies in place, they have a very non-standard way of verification and the worst part is how they take money from your account - very insecure, very non-standard and not at all trustworthy. They should really be reported to FCA.

One of the worst money transfer…

Review published ago

One of the worst money transfer website. They seem very dubious as they request an inordinate amount of information and still fail money transfers from US to India. I have been able to successfully transfer money using Xoom, western union and transfer wise without any issues/ hassle. But this remit2india website seems to be fake and have failed to transfer money during two attempts despite having valid information & proofs (3 bank statements, checking account statement and salary information). Stay away from this website. They could be scamming people!

Bad Experience

Review published ago

Its so funny that they have started the service from 33 states of USA but not included New York even though the cases of COVID gone down long back with no real time updates or reasons for not starting the service from New York.

Very difficult to get transaction done

Review published ago

It is very difficult to make a transaction. Their website ask for certain documents for verification but they actually need something else. There is a lot of noise in way they handle communication and almost impossible to know whether the transaction will happen on not after all the effort you put.

Cheater company

Promotion is not honored

Review published ago

Update: 06/13/2020 - I got an email again saying that it cannot be honored (with an excuse of operational challenges). Like I said in the beginning, please do not make offer promotions that cannot be honored. Update: 06/11/2020 - I sent an email with the details to your email info_at_remit2india.com. I used this service and they never honor the gift vouchers that they promise. If they cannot honor the promise, it would be better that they do not promote. When I booked the transaction, I was told that I will get the code after a month. When I called them after a month they told that it is being worked upon. When I tried to contact after 2 months after the initial transaction, I was told that they already sent me an email and I did not redeem it (note: I did not get the email yet) and the certificate is expired. If the company is genuine(which I doubt now), they will honor the promotion and send the voucher. Hope the senior management knows what their team is doing.
