Hi Guys, there is a petition on Change.Org that we all need to sign. Especially if we all here are using remittance companies such as iremit or forexworld to transfer funds from AU to PH.
The gist is, Australian banks are moving to shutdown remittance accounts. This will force us to remit money via the banks themselves who charge an exorbitant amount to transfer our money from AU to PH.
If this happens, mahihirapan tayo magpadala sa Pilipinas at magssuffer ang families natin and even our own finances here sa AU.
Requesting admin to post this as sticky at least for a week so that everyone can get a chance to sign.
I'm honestly not sure if the petition will work or not, but I don't want to not do anything about it.http://www.change.org/p/australia-s-banking-industry-help-ensure-the-survival-of-australian-remittance-providers-2
