Re: Ministry Bans Mobile Signal Booster Devices

I am confused by the word "wi-fi" in the KT article. Reading the actual article, it appears to me that they are still referring to mobile phone cell boosters: [The spokesman stated “Regarding the priority areas for stopping the use of the service booster, the Ministry is preparing a geogra...

Re: ABA credit card - renewal

It is a credit card. I am outside the country right now so timing is an issue. I was told that I have to come in person to renew my ABA credit card. I asked specifically because I noticed they now have these card printing machines. (For a debit card, in PP, you can now self-print a new one at one o...

Good to know. ABA used to allow me to withdraw $800 in one transaction with a foreign debit card. The last time the max was $500 at a fee of $8.

Re: Bank fees. Is ABA taking the piss or are they all?

I have used ABA for a while now. Good service IMO, however... I got acclimated with the $6 fee for credit card withdrawals, but now, with a new debit card, they want $8. Have they increased even more or is it a debit card thing? Or perhaps a scaling fee based on amount (500$ in this case)? Any insi...

Re: "Dr. Doom" economist Nouriel Roubini says stocks could plunge another 50% as the US heads towards a severe financial

Given the number of economists, there always have to be a few that are correct.

I wouldn't dare to.

Re: Forte Insurance?

I've had a look at their accident and injury policy and it seems good but also seems really cheap ($170 for the year). Has anyone had any experience with them? What are the limits of the policy you are considering? I had a look at their personal accident website offering and found this: https://i.i...
