TL/DR: Scammed a Nigerian scammer into sending me real accounts, names and details in UK and US (mules) to forward to the police and may or may not have donated 500 to charity.

does a (european) bank account's beneficiary and beneficiary address mean anything? Does it have to be real? (question + story)

The short: I have a polish IBAN EUR, branch address and swift codes for an account. beneficiary company is obviously completely different to the 'company' I was talking to and the bene. address doesn't match up with the addresses google spews out for the stated company.
Does bene. name and address have any significance or is it a diversion?
The long (scambait story): After nearly 4 years of getting calls from investment scammers, occasionally wasting time, usually blocking, I hoped I could at least get them to frick off for a bit by hurting their bottom line.
Waited for the inevitable call and tried to act enthusiastic about the 1000th call asking me to invest in their forex account. grilled them a little about their lack of FCA regulation, got lies and an innocent, similar sounding company's details in return. I called that company. Had fun making scammers sweat again while scrambling to come up with an excuse for why that company had never even heard of them. Why is your min deposit 100x higher than any other forex broker? Why is your website covered in conflicting information? etc. etc.
Now with the oldest bit of manipulation in the world, I release all the pressure and do them a favour. They're desperate enough by now. No more questions, Lets do this, I've even already signed up! Scammers texts are now short and rapid with excitement. "Great! we can do debit, credit, paypal, cashapp, x, y, z". Lovely! but I only do wire transfers, I even saw it on your site.
I didn't think you could see someones heart sink over text.
Paraphrasing of course. "Sir are you sur-" Yep. "How about th-" Nah, wire's always my go to "But-" Listen, if it's not wire, I think I'll have to reconsider this account. Get back to me if you figure it out.
Of course they did.
"I talked to my manager. we can offer two options. 1. Prepaid card ((HAH!)) 2. bank details"
"...it's a polish bank" (I couldn't believe it! they chose it to make it harder for a brit to verify. If only they knew my oldest friend is polish)
I immediately contact the bank and start googling. the beneficiary had a pretty normal name and I found 3 companies, doing different things; Construction, IT, marketing, all small (5 employees max) and nothing to do with forex of course. and none of their addresses matched the beneficiary address.
Everything else checked out.
After this I simply ghosted them, said I was distracted by dinner, work, and have been enjoying letting their desperate calls ring out.
So what do you think? did they pull a company out of thin air. Have they compromised one of these companies accounts? Could it be a fake account to test me or have they been stupid enough to use their OWN company as the beneficiary?

Send Money Abroad

The world has become more connected; more people or corporates need to send money abroad for many reasons. If you live and working away from the home, time will definitely come when you have to make transfer to abroad to support your loved ones and other reasons.
Outward Remittance is basically the same as an international money transfer. Many of the sender /customers live overseas and send their hard money to support their loved ones. For example, Parents do a wire transfer to University or their son/daughter’s account for the purpose of their education.
To help them, please visit your nearest branch of Orient exchange or go to the website www.orientexchange.in
Some of the tips to be followed for good convenience:
The right place to Approach
· Telegraphic transfers or process of sending money are made through ADII RBI license holders or banks or money changers.
· Customers should remember that you just can not trust any individuals with the responsibility of sending money.
· Experts recommend choosing a better exchange house /bank that has the international footprint which makes your money transfer easier and secure.
Mode of transfer
You need to choose the option to send money. One is Wire transfer and another is Demand draft. Wire transfer is done via SWIFT i.e. Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications.
A swift transfer is the most secure and standard system which can be done by banks to their correspondents with each other. A demand draft can be sent abroad physically and takes a little bit of time to get cleared. In most of the time remittance will be received by the beneficiary bank in 48 hrs.
Process of application
Primarily, the customer has to send their documents /upload either online or visit the office or request for home verification of KYC and other relevant documents. The requirement of documents may slightly vary with the purpose behind sending the money. There is a limit set by RBI to individuals who remitting money abroad. RBI has placed an annual cap of $ 250000 to the individuals
· Rate fixing: Customer can book their forex rate by paying 2% of the transaction value or they may pay after verification of documents.
· Fees/charges: Many banks are involved in a single outward remittance through the SWIFT network. The customer is liable to pay extra fees. Two to three intermediary banks may handle the transfers so they can add their own charges. In addition to that own bank & receipt bank charges are also included in what you pay.
Duration: Remitter to receiver ‘s account
A swift transfer is transferring money between multiple banks before the funds credited to the seller’s /beneficiary account. This process will be completed from 1 to 5 working days depending on the countries where you transfer.
What details are must for outward remittance transfer?
*Beneficiary Details :
Name of the beneficiary &
Address of the Beneficiary
*Payee Bank details :
1) SWIFT CODE: Swift code is known as Bank ID /SWIFT CODE/Identifier code.
Each financial institution is having its own unique swift code. Swift code usually has 8 to 11 digit or characters.
For Ex: BANK OF AMERICA transfer, SWIFT CODE is “ BOFAUS3N”
2) Beneficiary bank name
3) Beneficiary Bank Address and branch name
4) Beneficiary Bank Account Number
5) Currency wise bank details are additionally required:
i) AED – IBAN
ii) GBP – IBAN, Sort Code
iii) CAD – Transit Number
iv) AUD – BSB Code
v) EUNZD/THB/SEK/SGD – IBAN
Attention on the exchange rate:
Customers always think about the best way to send Wire transfer at a cheap cost.
In the current market scenario, customers should know that most of the banks or money exchangers don’t use the real exchange rate. Instead of that, add more margin on top of live rates. So, customers pay more or beneficiary to receive less. To avoid these hidden charges try using online services that provide you the live /real exchange rates on all wire transfers, Currency Exchange, forex card etc….

Looking for safe and inexpensive solution for holding/exchanging NOK/EUR/USD

I'm looking for:
Any ideas?
Some background in case you're wondering:
I'm a self-employed IT consultant and I'm currently working for a Norwegian customer via an agency in Estonia. I'm originally from Germany, but now traveling full-time.
Usually, my client (the agency) has simply paid me in EUR into my German bank account because it was easier, but now that NOK has devalued so much and I don't need the money immediately, I'd prefer to be paid in NOK. So that I can store/invest it and maybe exchange it to EUUSD some time in the future when the exchange rate is better.
However, I don't really trust German banks because of the Euro crisis and I'd prefer to have my money elsewhere. I actually also have a Norwegian bank account from many years ago when I used to work there, but I'd prefer not to use that either as I'd like to avoid issues with the Norwegian tax office ("Why is there so much of our currency in your account when you don't live or work in Norway?!").
I've thought about Swissquote, which seems to offer a multi-currency account, as well as the option to invest in ETFs/stocks. But they seem to have high fees.
Interactive Brokers is supposed to be very cheap, and they allegedly have even better asset protection. But their user interface is supposed to be difficult to use for beginners? And I guess they also don't have individual IBAN account numbers?
Saxo Bank looks very nice, but it seems a bit more expensive, too? On the plus side, they seem to support funding the account with European credit cards without a fee.
According to https://brokerchooser.com/compare-brokerage , for example Lynx is even cheaper than Interactive Brokers when it comes to forex.
Revolut is great for cheap currency exchange (I use it all the time), but they have terrible support (they once froze all my money for over a week and you can only communicate with them through their app's chat feature) and I don't really trust them as they don't have a banking license yet.
In case it matters, I have a US ITIN (taxpayer ID/"SSN" for non-residents) and credit score, and a Norwegian "D number" (basically the Norwegian equivalent of an ITIN), in addition to a German passport etc.

Building an Open API for Fiat to Crypto gateway, KYC-less and with no accounts.

Hi, Alexis, CEO of Bity.com here. We have designed and built an open API that can be used to swap crypto with fiat. You can sell your BTC for EUR or CHF and we will make a bank transfer to your account. If you open a fiat to crypto order, you will receive instructions on how to send a bank wire to us. Once received, we will send you BTC on your wallet. In order to ensure Swiss AML standards, you will have to sign a message with the private key of the receiving account.
For regular users, on bity.com, you can make a simple payment using without the need of an account with us. Just follow the guide. This is basically like if you go to a forex shop and change some Euros notes for CHF notes.
For developers, we created some tools to help you integrate the API in your own application. The API was mainly designed to be implemented in wallets, but it can also be used elsewhere based on your needs. The documentation of the API is available at https://doc.bity.com/exchange/v2.html
On the frontpage, we have built an implementation of our API using our reference implementation in JS https://www.npmjs.com/package/@bity/react-exchange-client . This package is based on https://www.npmjs.com/package/@bity/api
Currently our API support BTC, ETH and CHF, EUR. For now it supports payments to IBAN accounts only. The limits are currently 5000 CHF per transaction per day, like on ATMs in Switzerland. Another limitation is the speed of Bank payments. When your transaction is confirmed, we send the Fiat payment immediately to our banks. But it can happen that the bank transfer itself takes few hours or days.
KYC-Less? We will still need the details associated to your bank account like your name and address. This not for KYC purpose, but because our bank will refuse to send a payment to an IBAN without us providing the proper name of the account holder. This data is actually routing data.
In the future? We want to add some more cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies, we want also to add support of non-IBAN accounts. We will also be adding an authentication layer that will allow verified Bity users to use the API without the limitations.

Buying in the UK? Here's a cost efficient way..

Turns out most of the GBP markets are illiquid (until someone creates the TEA token), so if you're new and buying from the UK here's a way to avoid atrocious Coinbase and Forex fees. I've seen a few people ask about this and I didn't have the karma to reply...
1. Put your money in Revolut App and convert to Euros
You'll get the best exchange rate and no fees. Revolut don't like Crypto exchange transfers (and I don't think the IBAN is in your name) so we need to move it somewhere else. You could probably use Transferwise here too.
2. Transfer those euros to Fire personal account.
Fire is free and gives you a Euros IBAN in your name. They charge a lot for currency exchange, hence the first step. It takes 3 days for a free transfer to Fire.
3. Send SEPA transfer to Coinbase
Make sure you verify your account with them first (you have to send 6 Euros) and where it says 'Enter note for recipient' you need to enter your Coinbase reference. You could use Kraken, which has more liquidity and support who actually answer, but it's fairly unreliable. Maybe Bitstamp will be better. I've had this in my Coinbase account same day, generally.
4. Transfer to GDAX
It's free, instant and easy enough to do.
5. Buy using a Limit order for no fees!
Worth googling or looking on this sub for guidance on limit orders if you're not sure.
6. Send those Eth to safety
MyEtherWallet.com is an easy place to store them, but get them off the exchange! They're not (that) safe there. You can use the Metamask plugin for chrome too, it's a bit more user-friendly.
Hope that helps a British brother out. Cheers!

Cashing Out with Gemini

I thought I'd make a post about my experience with Gemini.
TL;DR If I'd had the info I'm posting here, it would have been very smooth, so hopefully it'll help someone.
Beneficiary Bank Information Silvergate Bank ABA routing number: 322286803 Attn: Treasury Department 4275 Executive Square, Suite 300 La Jolla, CA 92037 United States of America
For Further Credit to Account number: 1000808012 Gemini Trust Company LLC 600 Third Avenue, 2nd Fl New York, NY 10016 United States Of America
But don't take my word for it, ask Gemini for clarification before linking accounts. It might be different for your bank. It went through very quickly, maybe it would've been even quicker if I'd initiated the transfer earlier in the day.
The End.

Where to register the company for your Forex Brokerage?

Where to register the company for your Forex Brokerage?


Thinking about starting your own Forex Brokerage? The first logical question is "Where is the best location to incorporate and license your broker?".
However before we proceed on to answer this question, there are other related questions a person who has a serious interest in opening his FX Brokerage needs to answers.
Q1) Which regions are your going to concentrate on for retail clients?
Q2)When do you plan on launching your company & product?
Q3)How much money do you plan on establishing your brokerage?
Q4)Which business model are you going to have ? (STP,Market Maker,DD,Mixed)
Q5)Which bank will open you a corporate bank account?(depends on license & country of incorporation)
Q6)How're you going to collect the payments from your clients?
For the purposes of answering the question, we will divide certain geos(regions) in Tiers based on the level of reporting, capital requirement & tight regulated environment each jurisdiction has.
1) Tier 1 :
To safeguard investors from fraudulent and ponzi schemes, many countries have established private or state owned organizations to monitor and regulate the Forex Market and are actively supported by the governments. Example of countries in this Tier are JAPAN(FSA JAPAN) & USA(NFA & CFTC).
There are profound reporting requirements, broker required to provide high quality in services and prove the availability of $20 Million USD of free liquid capital not including clients money. There is also a compulsion to have local offices and a significant membership fee as well.
2) Tier 2:
Regulations like FCA UK & ASIC Australia fall under this category. These jurisdictions require lower initial capital and are committed to reporting. Obtaining a license from these authorities may take anything between 6 months to a year depending on how fast the required documents are submitted.
Applying for a license from these regulatory authorities typically requires one to have a minimum of $100,000 USD of non client funds. The cost for this is approximately $35,000 to $50,000(depending on what license you take) for example if you plan to have a Dealing Desk which doesn't forward the liquidity flow to a third party then you need to show a high availability of disposable liquid funds available approximately $1 Million USD where as for STP(Straight Through Processing) models where you forward all the liquidity flow it's about $100,000 USD.
3)Tier 3:
Offshore with certain level of protection for investors like Cyprus(CySEC),, Malta(MSA), New Zealand (FSP) are the Tier 3 jurisdictions.
These regulators require the availability of a local office, simpler reporting & very low taxes. Specially Cyprus which offers good access to EU and is also ESMA compliant. The cost for CySEC range from 125,000 Euro to 750,000 Euro depending which model you're going for STP or Dealing Desk and the process time remains on par with the Tier 2 regulators.
4)Tier 4:
BVI, Marshall Islands, Belize & Seychelles are the Tier 4 jurisdiction and have a official regulation and license the broker needs to obtain if providing FX Instruments. Obtaining a license and getting a license usually takes 3-4 months and cost around $20,000 to $30,000 USD with a $500,000 USD in capital requirement(Belize). Also with these licenses it's easier to open and maintain a bank account.
5)Tier 5:
There are certain offshore jurisdictions Like St. Vincent & Grenadines or Bermuda where there getting a Forex license is not compulsory. Setting up a company needs only a little capital and the money saved can then be used on operations or marketing.
It's a bit difficult to obtain an account in a credible bank for Tier 5. Most startups go around this issue by listing their company for more than one service for example Consultancy, Marketing,FX, Travel etc or through EMIs which can provide an online IBAN. (B2B accounts mostly).
Many big brokers around the world start with small licenses and obtain their bigger licenses much later such examples include big names like Alpari, Admiral, Primus etc.

Which jurisdiction is the best choice for your new EMI business?
The best places to give your brand some credible backing of regulations is to register in EEA. EEA regulators are accepted as one of the best in keeping clients money safe and some sound regulations. The best for this case are UK, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Malta & Ireland. Some of these (UK & Malta) regulators have requirements like hiring of local staff and may demand for the directors to be local so you may choose UK for the highly prestigious regulation however Czech Republic and Lithuania offer a good compromise between services offered and prestigious jurisdiction with a more easy application as well.

Capital Requirements:
There are two sub categorizations of EMIs having small and full license. Depending on what type of EMI you want to start, what type of services you want to provide and where you get the licensing from will affect the capital requirements.
For example if you have a monthly turnover of less than 3 Million Euro then you can obtain a small EMI license and if your turnover exceeds this then you might need a full license.
For small EMIs the capital requirements range from 50,000 Euro to 60,000 Euro

Опять нам вышло послабление - как перечислять деньги зарубеж и не платить бешенных transaction fees (by div_by_zero)

Original lj thread: http://torontoru.livejournal.com/1931512.html
Я уже писал тут про волшебный сервис поиска LTL-перевозчиков Freightera, который позволяет мне экономить 30-50% на shipping costs по Канаде и Штатам
Сегодня хотел поделиться тем, как с минимальными затратами делать Wire Transfer за рубеж
Допустим, вам надо заплатить контрагенту в USD, притом что на Вашем счете есть только CAD
В такой ситуации, если вы пойдете в банк делать Wire Transfer, то банк отымеет вас по полной программе
Сначала, они отконвертируют CAD в USD по своей ставке, добавив 2-3 сотых процента к спотовому курсу (в свою пользу само собой) - только на этом вы потеряете пару процентов от переводимой суммы
Потом, они возьмут с вас Transaction fee - долларов 35, и еще correspondence fee - еще долларов 45
На небольших суммах, в нескольких сотен долларов, transaction fees и currency spreads легко могут вам стоить 5-10 процентов от стоимости перевода
Как это делать правильно ? Открываете счет на canadian forex (https://www.canadianforex.ca) , и привязываете к нему свой канадский счет (они потребуют от вас подписать соответствующшие бумаги, дающие им право на money withdrawal)
Потом, делаете через них FX transaction, которую совмещаете с Wire transfer. Забиваете там все обычные атрибуры (SWIFT,IBAN банк-корреспондент и т д - они поддерживают все методы).
Сам перевод при этом ничего не стоит, и у них совершенно замечательные Exchange Rates
Например, мой перевод вчера они подсчитали по курсу 0.7903, при том, что SPOT rate за день не поднимался выше 0.7969
То есть, они накинули наверное около 0.7 сотых к Spot rate, в то время, как банк взял бы как минимум 2 сотых (в 4-5 раз больше)
