[heartfelt] I believe with Jesters outline it was my understanding today would give Iraq citizens time to celebrate and then Saturday evening through early am Sunday when markets are down was a good time to look to release it internationally.
[beudful1] Robertprofessor I wonder how long it will take to make an apt at the bank
[Robertprofessor] beudful1 I doubt it will take long to get through on the 800# and set an appointment. Those that live in large metro areas may not get in for a week or more. Those in less populated areas probably get in sooner. Just a guess.
[beudful1] Robertprofessor Ok, I'm in a large metro area, I am only worried now if they are going to want to send the dinar off to verify. What do you think? Are you making copies of yours?
[Robertprofessor] beudful1 Some have said to do that. I'm not.
[jbrentd] beudful1 I 'll try and help with your question....there will be over 1100 exchange locations each will have a way to verify...I have heard it depends on how much you have. Under 1 million will be verified by black light and currency books...over 1 million will be verified by dela rue machine
[Robertprofessor] beudful1 I hope they will be verified on site, I think they will be, but as soon as my IQD are put into a new account, I'll move them to a second account and close the first. That makes them good right then. I'll do the same with the VND. I'll go back to the bank another day to ...
[Robertprofessor] ... move IQD into a "mother lode" account with no internet access, password protected and accessible in person only. Same with VND, but two accounts. Then I'll wire some "operational" money to accounts I already have. Then, I'm ready to rock!
[beudful1] jbrentd So when we call up to make the appointment, will they ask us how many we are exchanging, and tell us the rate?
[jbrentd] beudful1 I can't confirm that...but be prepared to answer ...that may be how they decide to direct you to a specific location
