If only banks would wait as long as us for their cash

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

Af­ter wait­ing 12 days for an in­ter­na­tional money trans­fer com­ing from a UK rep­utable bank (if there is such a thing) to our lo­cal ac­count in Dubai, we have been left won­der­ing, where has our money gone! Our bank in Dubai, for sev­eral days is ‘in­ves­ti­gat­ing’ and have been given ev­ery doc­u­ment re­quested. But still noth­ing. You try and find some­one to be ac­count­able and you are pushed from one num­ber to an­other. Never reach­ing the right per­son. Cen­tral Bank may be the reg­u­la­tor of such fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions but can you ac­tu­ally get hold of them to dis­cuss the mat­ter? No, sev­eral calls and no call backs and a few emails with no re­ply, all through their guided communication chan­nels! So you are left with no idea of who to see or com­plain to. How­ever, miss a credit card pay­ment or an in­stal­ment and you are bom­barded with dozens of calls and threat­ened with po­lice cases. Do they ac­tu­ally care about any­one but them­selves? No they don’t. Sand surf­ing shark Dubai not per­mit­ted. Also the watch­man rooms and the party hall have been rented out which I be­lieve is il­le­gal. I re­ally want the com­pany to fix th­ese prob­lems but de­spite sev­eral ten­ant com­plains they haven’t done any­thing. The best way to make them fix things will be to raise a com­plaint and then am sure they will get their act right. I re­ally don’t know which de­part­ments to con­tact to seek help, would ap­pre­ci­ate if other read­ers here who know could guide me. Need help Dubai your garbage and I sug­gest to im­pose fines on those who leave their garbage and trash be­hind. Hani Ghibeh Dubai
