Here's someting that may be of interest. Forward it as you wish but do not use my name or screen name please. I've been reading that Wells Fargo is somehow a key to this and that having a WF account might move you ahead of others. I visited a WF branch today intending to open up a modest checking account, $4,000 so I wouldn't have to pay fees. As we started I casually asked the new accounts clerk "have you heard anything about a revaluation of the Iraqi currency called dinars". She froze for a moment. Then said "yes, I have. You know it is a complete hoax, I don't know how it got started and don't know how Wells Fargo became the target as the primary bank involved". I then said "I'm sure Wells Fargo personnel have been told to say that if asked". Still smiling. I then said "I'll go ahead and open up an account just in case". She excused herself. Within ten seconds she returned with the branch manager who said "this dinar thing is a hoax and I can give you the phone number of an individual at our corporate headquarters who is in the IRAQI DINAR DEPARTMENT who can explain the hoax to you --". I cut her off saying "there is AN ENTIRE DEPARTMENT FOR IRAQI DINARS at Wells Fargo!!??". Instant red face and stammering. She regained her composure saying "if your only interest in opening up a checking account is Iraqi dinars we do not want your business." "So I can't open up a checking account with $4,000 cash in hand?" "No, I'm sorry". She almost pulled me out of my chair and escorted me to my car! She stood there until I drove off. What did I do next? - I drove to another WF branch and opened up an account saying nothing about dinars. Fortunately, the first encounter did not get far enough along to even get my name. Something is VERY odd about WF and dinars. What are the odds that word has gotten out within WF to where even basic tellers have their assets down to their socks invested in dinars? AND if an RV occurs they will all get the best rate and the earliest payouts It was a VERY strange day for me. Take it for what it's worth.
Hi, I just got back from my local Wells Fargo. I went in figuring I should set up a small NIB account to have it ready to go, since I do not normally bank at WB. This is what the banker told me. He said that WB, not just his branch but all of WB, is not planning on exchanging IQD until next year at the earliest. Furthermore, he said that our government is 100% responsible for what currencies are "allowed" to be traded in the USA (not the IMF). He said in his opinion, it would take an Administration change for it to happen at all (if ever) because it was mostly a political decision, meaning to allow IQD exchange would give Iraq too much power, which the US gov't doesn't want to do. It was very discouraging. Has anyone else heard anything like this?
