I read all posts from everyone. Hope and pray with and for everyone, including the people of Iraq, but do not post. I just read, listen and learn. Not any kind of "guru" or any other terminology one might put to people who post on a regular basis. I have no "intel" or information outside what I get from the forums and read on the net, or watch or listen to ....
Today, Sept 9, 2011, I received an email saying that Wells Fargo had removed their disclaimer about the Iraqi Dinar on their outgoing voicemail. This is a recording I had heard about 2 months ago when we thought this HAD to happen in August. ;) So, being the truth seeker I am, I called the number 800.626.xxxx. I heard the outgoing voicemail, just saying something to the effect of "If you wish to purchase press one. If you're calling about an online purchase, press two." I didn't press anything and was transferred to a real person. This is how the conversation went...
WF: "Hello, Foreign Exchange Dept. How may I help you?" Me: "Hi. I was just wondering what kind of spread WF charges on exchanges." WF: "Are you thinking about purchasing a certain currency?" Me: "No. I own a certain amount of a currency and I was wondering what your rate is going back to US Dollars." WF: "Well, typically, it's about 1 or 2 percent." Me: "And would I need to go to a main branch? Or can I exchange at a local branch?" WF: "Yes." Me: "Yes, a main branch or yes a local branch?" WF: "Oh, I'm sorry. A local branch. Yes." Me: "One more thing. Your outgoing voicemail used to have a disclaimer about a certain currency and I noticed it no longer does." WF: "Oh. We USED to have a disclaimer about the Iraqi Dinar. But, we don't anymore." Me: "Yes. That is exactly what I'm referring to. Is there any particular reason for that?" WF: "Well. It WAS because we weren't exchanging them. It was removed, but we're not exchanging them YET." ME: "YET... the KEY word there." WF: "(Giggles) Yes. That would be right." Me: "Thank you very much." WF: "Thank you for calling WF. Have a wonderful day."
Now, I know this isn't earth shattering.... but the last time I spoke with a WF PERSON, I was laughed at and ridiculed. This was a horse of an entirely different color! I now have personal experience of someone treating me with respect with regard to the IQD, instead of disdain. I have known all along we would be here, someday. It's so very nice that someday is sooner than later! Have a grand day, and be encouraged.
