Lol... i tried to transfer 40 EUR from Germany to my Intersango Account. Result: My bank account locked.
The Bank says that the Intersango account was used for illegal transactions and fraud activities before and that it is therefore under an embargo. They canceled my transaction and locked my own bank account. Just in case a trojan horse or a phishing website had taken it over.
Any similar experiences?
Patrick Strateman: yeah not surprising
Patrick Strateman: i dont think it's actual fraud
Patrick Strateman: but rather people report the transaction as fraudulent after the payment
Patrick Strateman: effectively scamming their bank
So your bank is being cautious.
