Hello, I need your support with a transfer of payment like 546,- EUR is to Lebanon Unicredit bank. I´ve got this information from Unicredit bank of Czech Republic and Slovakia: BKAUATWW is correspondence bank, and my charges (Olga´s charges) are: 10,- Eur + OUR: 19,- EUR. My total fees: 29,- EUR. Is that information responsible for me? Really you are only the one correspondence bank taking a part at this tranfer? Your answer is important for me, because I have a business partner in Egypt and we find out the best way of transfer money to Egypt. 1. Means, we want to send money to Unicredit bank in Lebanon and from Lebanon to the bank to Egypt - BLOM EGYPT bank or to Arab African Internation Bank. Because we have a very bad experience of transfer money during VUB that we´ve alreaday transfer. VUB bank used 3 correspondence banks and they took a big charges from the account of Receiver like 56,- EUR and from me 18,- EUR, TOTAL 74,- EUR. These charges destroy business so we find out the better way of transfer. From the very beginning of 2017 we will working with big amount of money, that´s why your answer is importnat for us. 1. If you have any better possibility to transfer money to any bank in Egypt, please let us know. We created our accounts in those banks. Thank you very much for your suppport. I am lookforward to hearing you soon. Best Regards Oľga Vazanová, Kynceľová 14, 974 01 Banská Bystrica, Slovakia +421 948 772 827
