DO NOT TRUST RIA
DO NOT TRUST RIA! Your money may vanish.I've been using Ria since 2014. I've successfully used their service to send money to my Girlfriend and her family in the Philippines. I've sent it using my checking account and using my debit card. I've also sent money to a family friend in Colombia. There was a error in one of transfers and Ria apologized and even issued me a promo code for my next transfer being free. However, apparently the customer service representative had a gripe with me being upset and was somehow able to BAN my account for life! My account has been locked and when I got a message to call them, I was told that my transaction was "risky" and therefore I can NEVER use the online service again, but I can go to a Ria physical location! If it's a risk issue, why do they even allow me to do that? So,it's NOT a security or risk issue as they LIED to me. Additionally, they won't tell me what the "risk" issue is and REFUSE to provide any information to address the situation. All the other wire companies are able to process the EXACT SAME transaction without any problem, however I wanted to continue dealing with Ria because they were less expensive. In summary: DO NOT TRUST RIA! I repeat: DO NOT TRUST RIA! Use somebody else who is trustworthy and has integrity.Customer service was also rude when I inquired into this and NOBODY would return my call. I'll now go back to XOOM, Transferwise, Remitly, Western Union, Money Gram and others that can be trusted. I advise you to do the same.
