  1. I finally located a WF bank that knew what a De la rue Machine was and if they had one. This was about four weeks ago. I call Dallas/Ft Worth, LA & San Diego, CA and finally Miami, FL. The currency exchange mgr. informed me that De La Rue machines are for PRINTING currency, NOT, reading currency. They did have a machine to read foreign currencies if in large volumes but was not needed. All employees are trained to identify counterfeit bills in any currency. I just wish people would stop saying a De La Rue machine reads foreign currency.
  2. Where are all those oil tankers anchored off the coast of Iraq waiting to ship OIL???!!! I have no idea if anyone has taken the time to look but the only SHIPS in the Middle East is going through the Suez Cannel. These are Container Ships, not ships that carry petroleum. I searched the Gulf of Suez, Gulf of Aqaba, Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Gulf of Oman, Persian Gulf, Mediterranean and the Arabian Sea, Strait of Hormuz, Gulf of Tadjoura and the Gulf of Kutch..... and NO SHIPS... I tried to post a response on Recraps numerous times but am not allowed to question the masters of Bravo Sierra and the almighty delete button.
  3. Check the CBI web page @ 0330 EST and the site was back up... darn thing was..... the rates had not changed...
  4. I always check the CBI site to see if the RV has happened. Last night all the currencies were listed with the same amounts as in the past. This morning, there are no amounts on any of them. At the end of Dec. 6 of 9 were replaced with dashes but today nada... Just an observation.
  5. This web site shows all the countries and central banks belonging to the BIS.... Iraq is one of them. Iraq's central bank's web site is the same site it always has been showing the current currency exchanges.
  6. Tony Bologna - the only organization that can say what a countries currency is worth and announce it is the Central Bank of that country... The IMF and WB give loans, NOT dictate what a currency is worth... get it right Toni....
  7. It will talk them three days to see the last man standing "I TOLD YOU IT WOULD BE TODAY"
  8. Spoke to a good friend, who extensive portfolio, and explained to him about the ISX. He contacted his Manager/Financial Advisor/Registered Financial Consultant on getting in on the ground floor in the ISX and how to proceed. The following is what he stated: Thanks for your email and for taking our call. We contacted several resources, all of whom stated that there isn't, that they know if, any schedule Initial Public Offering (IPO) for the Iraqi Stock Market and also, that Nasdaq is only helping them with their electronic trading/profile. The links below should also set forward some additional information - we'll keep looking.. If any more information comes to light concerning the ISX and being able to get involved I will pass it on...
  9. -Comments must pertain to the post -No profanity – even if abbreviated -No rude comments -No Negativity -No Fear Mongering –No bashing of Intel providers or forums -No outside links -No personal information -No Promotion of outside companies The Website Operators have the ability to edit or remove User Comments that are obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable, and the Operators should follow through consistently and in good faith. Why is it a web site publishes guidelines like the above but not about pumping. With only 1% of the "intel" being somewhat accurate, an additional rule should be "NO PUMPING OF DINAR"... Oh, that's right... there wouldn't be anything to post.... The web site's name should be changed to "DBS"... only the best pumping post allowed, "integrity" not welcome...
  10. The only thing I know for a fact, when I left Iraq in Oct 09, no one, vendors or military personnel going off base could purchase dinar but only received 1k or less bills. You could get a better rate from the vendors, $800 per mil. but they only had the 1k notes and a few 5k. Prior to the only notes given were the 25k and you had to ask if they could get lower denominations. Figured it would be easier to cash in 1's, 5's and 10's than a 25k. the military and contractors were buying millions in country, and at the end before I left, it was all 1k notes for the most part. Army even said the shops could not even get enough money from the banks to run their businesses. Since I could not go outside the wire, I can not verify what I was told. There was some talk a month or so ago about that $27 - 30:1 rate. the talk was about "oil dinar or petrol dinar". when a country cashed in the dinar they received from cashing in for their citizens, they would then trade the dinar for oil or gas and Iraq would give them the $27-30 rate per dinar to pay for it. Makes since being Iraq had a heck of a lot of G&O. Kurdistan has found at least 5 major oil fields in as many years. Iraq could do the same if they would get their act together I am in total agreement that amount is not for us. the 1:1 to me would seem a little low to start, there are investors out there that can afford to spend 1mil in hopes of making 2 or 3 to 1 off the investment over a short period of time. Iraq was told by Kuwait that when the RV'd they could not go above their currency's value, that is in 2008. The $2 range would take a lot of investors out of the picture. What happens after that is up to the float. I had a conversation with a gentleman in Aug this year who work for the IMF for 20yrs and WB for 10 years, now retired and working as a consultant for ???? With all the guru's saying the IMF and/or the WB will pull the trigger is a complete contradiction to he said. Only the Central Bank of that country say's what the rate will be. They decide how much, when the currency changes. I asked about the IQD.... he stated bad investment and would not go up in value. They have no exports other than oil and the security and government is so corrupt. When I said I was invested he shut up. Said he probably should not have said anything. the only thing I do is check the CBI web site and see what the rate is. I say "well, 5 more days"
  11. I know a lot of people have noticed that if you reply to someone's post (DR) and it does not pump the RV or Dinar, it never gets posted. No bashing, beating, trashing or what ever you want to call it, the moderators do not post your reply. Point: If anyone wants to look back in the Iraqi news from May 2009, give or take a few weeks either way, Iraq made an announcement that they were removing the bills with 000. By Oct. of 2009 no one could buy or find a 25k or 10k note and very, very few 5k notes. Did not matter if you went to a vendor or a bank, 95% of the notes you could get were 1k, some 500 and 250 notes. The military would go out and buy dinar for the contractors who could not leave the base. So this big news they are taking these notes off the streets is old hat. As far as respect for the DR web site... not any more. Turns out to be just a Dinar Gas Station. pump the dinar. I have a friend that I worked with in Iraq from 07 - 09, and daily (at least 30 - 50 times) he would ask me if "We rich yet!?" and my response since Sept '07' has been "5 more days". When the CBI (central banks of all countries govern what that countries rate will be, NO ONE ELSE) shows the rate on their web site, is the time it will be international. If a contractor in Iraq has received or is receiving that $27+ rate a couple individuals say their husband received for the dinar. They might want to check the spouses passport, this would explain why he is not coming home for R&R. There would not be a contractor working in those conditions in the ME if they were invested in dinar and it cashed in at 27:1. The people who have been in Iraq, military or working, know what I am talking about. That's it, just had to vent. Posted 6 replies on DR over the past 4 days and not one was accepted. Since I am not up to getting that golf ball through a garden hose and don't intend to, I give up on them.
  12. I wonder how many investors will name their new born children names like; Dinarian, dinaretta, R. V. Smith? You know, some name to reflect their obsession with the dinar over the past humpteen years... the bourbon has me wondering...
  13. Went to help the wife pick up a bed that was on Craig's list here in SW FL. The gentleman's wife had pass on and was moving up to Longboat Key. He mentioned he had been married twice and both wives had passed and that he had worked for the IMF for 20yrs and the World Bank for 10 before retiring and now working part time as a consultant for different companies. I asked if the IMF and/or World Bank dictates or governs a countries currency rate (I asked this since soooo many well informed people on numerous sites have people in high places in numerous 3 letter organizations and have inside scoop). He stated the IMF only give loans to countries and the only organization that has control over a counties currency, increase or decrease in value, is the Central Bank of that country. No one else. He went on to give an example, China, that their currency is way under valued. This is due to all the exports and very little imports. This is where they get their money and they can and do, keep the value low. I brought up Iraq and Iran. Too much unrest, corrupt politicians, and uncertainty in the region. The more a country holds US $'s the more their currency will be worth, the less they have the less it's worth. He stated that Iraq does not need to increase the value of their currency due to all the oil they have. They don't need to increase the value of their money, they get their money from the oil. Not exports. He also stated if the Iraqis done away with the Prime Minister that the value would go down drastically due the civil war it would create in country. He stated it would be a very, very high risk venture with Iraqi currency. I then stated I was invested in the dinar. He then said he probably shouldn't have said what he did. I told him I appreciated the information and I have not lost money so far and could sell it and make a small profit. He then stopped discussing currency and the wife and I left. The information he stated above was before I asked about the dinar. I sure hope it is not true but makes one wonder. I have been in this since Oct 2007 and thought it was coming to an end but he sure has me a little concerned.
  14. Vietnam is not under any santions and their currency is worth 20855 VND - 1 USD.... and the banks will cash this in for you... But.... Iraq, even if they RV (when ever), banks will not and can not do anything with their currency without CH 7 being lifted.... a santion is a santion... if they can't play with the rest of the world it don't matter what or when they RV/RI, we still won't be able to cash out... even the foreign banks are not accepting IQD, not allowed... santions guru's, santions. Santions not lifted, no can play...
