5 Reviews for “InstaReM – BER Review”

  1. Avatar Frank says:

    I initiated a $30000 US dollar transaction to the Philippines for a property purchased.
    I provided all the documents including the deed of sale, my bank account statements detailing the source of funds, etc and after 12 days of processing/pending status,
    they send me an email stating that they will refund my money instead.
    They could not provide me any more details except it doesn’t meet their internal process.
    I asked for more information as to why it did not meet their internal process when I have provided everything that they needed but the customer rep says that’s all the information she has.
    Bare in mind that I’ve been able to send the same amount using Transfast with no issues whatsoever.
    It took them 12 days to determine this while they have my funds on their bank account and it’s going to take a few more days for me to get the refund.
    Essentially the way they make money is to keep your funds for a couple of weeks while they make interest out of it and refund it back to you.
    What a SCAM and RIPOFF.
    This company should be investigate for FRAUD and illegally profitting interest from other peoples funds/money!!!

    VERY unacceptable experience
    VERY unacceptable experience.
    Attempted to set up a new account and transfer monies to Peru.

    1st issue – No explanation of required fields such as: CCI or DNI or RUC or CE. So I called spent 20 minutes with a representative and he didn’t know. He had to call me back. He said that the CCI is the SWIFT number which is 8 characters, but the website requires a 18 digit code?

    2nd issue – Not all banks are listed for the US and ACH is the only method of payment.

    So I invested 45 minutes and it was a HUGE waste of my time.

    Guys pls don’t use this app i have lost some money there and I am calling them daily for the update and they don’t have any clue and daily they are giving different excuses.Wrost experience.Better use TNG which I normally use for remittance from HK to India

  4. Avatar Malaysian Reviewer says:

    – Not compromise
    – Keep asking personal documents like bank statement and need to show all their info as requested
    – Hold our money/ transaction so it will take longer than 2 working days and come back with non-sense excuses
    – Try it if you want such an experience!

  5. BER Team BER Team says:

    InstaReM are the new kids on the block in South-East Asia, they are bringing more competition to this already crowded region.
