  1. The Borax was a instant success in getting rid of the black ants, so will keep that up. Not such a success was the ants in my bed, where I would wake up and see them on the sheets, until I remembered that last year an optometrist in Australia discovered that I had a floater in my right eye, as I went to him looking for an explanation why I was seeing ants all over my keyboard. Just an optical illusion.
  2. I am with BPI and they have one ATM in the whole city, and it is placed on a footpath where the homeless children hover when I am making a withdrawal. I should have gone with BDO. That is why it matters.
  3. Good move, BDO seems to have more atm’s than the competition.
  4. Snowy I feel your pain. As I have previously mentioned I have to get up at3 a.m. to get phone reception with Globe, to get their 2 factor authentication. So this morning some I sent not so kind messages to Remitly asking them to let me know if they want my business or not because I am sick to death of being Phucked around. Some customer support person called me back and apologised to me for the treatment I had been given and promised me that it won’t happen again. While all of this was going on I tried to join, world remit,Orbit remit and wise. They all wanted the same shite, send my mug shot on webcam, passport and other proof of identification. Wise was the worst, they wanted information from me of where my funds were derived from. I have given up for the day, I will have an early start again in the morning and see how I go. I have even said to a couple of them “hey I am 70 years old,and not a teenager who grew up with all this webcam, app’s and the like”. My rant finished.
  5. My problems are all to do with lousy Globe phone reception, the relative easy task of replying with a code is now a mammoth task. for some reason there is good reception at 3 a.m.
  6. As I delve into this further it is becoming very clear to me that this verification thing is here to stay. So for me to respond to the banks and money transfer companies, I am going to have another phone loaded with an international roaming sim to reply with the codes they send me, of course capable of sending text messages. I am hungover today and am not on top of my game, so if I am not thinking this out properly feel free to correct me, no problems.
  7. Yes, exactly what I was told at the Bicol office, no way am I walking down an altar again, I will do the 2 hour trip instead, there and back. Works out an expensive trip with the price of fuel, lunch etc, better than the alternative.
  8. I tried to up my transfer amount with Remitly, because they banned me for transferring any more money, having gone over my limit, (which I needed to do after No maintenance on her car while I was away for 2 years because of Covid). To go up to the next level I have to submit identification, passport and drivers licence and my bank statements, giving them my monthly income and where it is derived from. I am banned from transferring money with them until September, so,I went looking for a plan D. plans B and C failed because of different reasons. So I joined RIA, thinking I was on a winner. Nope they don’t have online services in the Philippines. Back to the planning stage,
  9. Tell me about it. My security token thingy I have with Westpac went belly up, so of course I had to call their overseas number to get a new one, a week to get a new one and then express international post to get it here. In the meantime I have called them countless times to try and get a way for my debit card to work with money transfer companies, no way Jose. As mentioned because of the scammers we now have 2 step verification process, so with no good reception from globe I have to find the sweet spot and take my laptop there set up on a table and hope the phuck there isn’t a power blackout. no wonder i I drink.
  10. Do telephone signal boosters work, or a waste of money? I am with globe and have to walk for 5 minutes to get a signal. These 2 verification code things really suck.
  11. They might have good rates but are worse than Telstra for customer service, or lack of service. Last week I had some big bills after getting the Mazda serviced, save that for another post. So Remitly cut me off, and wanted for me to go to another tier level, no problems it’s their service. So I went onto their app to do this, but the app froze and wouldn’t let me upload my passport and driver’s licence. Then I contacted them on their chat line, where they gave me an email address for the upload. I sent these documents 20 times and didn’t receive a response. So then they called me and gave me the third degree after the usual verification process, which I already had give them ten times on the chat line,then they wanted to know why I wanted the money. So I got through all that but then they gave me approval for 3000.u.s a day. So then let’s go ahead with the transfer, to which they withdrew funds from my account twice 2 lots of 1200 Aussie dollars. Last night I sent them a complaint form detailing of what they had put me through and that I would be contacting my bank reporting Fraudulent Transactions by Remitly. Remitly, I never want to hear from them again, but I don’t think it’s finished yet.
  12. Yes they got caught..so looking for someone else.
  13. Not with Westpac and St.George building society as of a few months ago, something about money laundering I heard on the grapevine. I tried a transfer with wise the other day and got the same result. Shame because I was with worl remit for years. Effective from 20th December 2021
  14. My 2 cents, I recall the story on social media tongue in cheek where the playboy asked the beautiful girl to marry him, to which she declined. Fast forward and the playboy bought fast cars,boats etc and lived happily ever after.
  15. I was using WorldRemit until they stopped using Poli. Then went to Remitly until they became absurd with their limits. So now looking for another transfer company, any suggestions please folks? thanks
  16. I am intending to ask what do I get on this cover? Keep it simple maybe?
  17. as always, thanks Geoff, I guess my next step is to go into their office and see if I cannot a straight answer on what the cars are covered for. Wish me luck old mate, I reckon I might need it.
  18. Is it worth the money to get car insurance? I tried to read the policy but gave up just a lot of mumbo jumbo. So here I am asking the forums know I will get some idea. I asked the gf but all she knows is how to drive it and let me know when it needs fuel topped up.
  19. Anyone know of a product that gets rid of ants? I bought some product from Lazada called "Greenleaf powder Ant killing bait" did not work.
  20. Well how long can one drive on an International Drivers licence in the Philippines?
  21. I wonder what the fine is if you get caught driving without a local licence after these months is up? I notice of late the local law enforcement people are having a crackdown on valid registered cars and motorcycles , I didn’t stop to find out. cheers
  22. I feel your pain, I also have to hurry and try to get the code and do a brisk walk back not easy with 2 stuffed knees.
  23. Couldn’t agree more, I want to enjoy what time I have left on top of the ground. I am getting this treatment at the moment and I am thinking that Imam far too old to put up with this shite, maybe time to put the escape plan into action. I just couldn’t be bothered.
