Canadia Bank now charging fees

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

That's a cash advance from an account in the black - purely exchange rate, the ATM gave a breakdown on the screen and I had to accept a waiver that I wouldn't complain to MasterCard about it before I got the cash. I'm staying with WU in future. At least they are up front and honest when they're raping you.

WU is more - forced consent. You know they will fuck you in the ass.

The bank is rape.

I would complain straight to ANZ rather than MasterCard.

They are pretty good (at least the NZ variant) at responding to internet banking secure mail...

Like when a hotel employee tried to charge $15600 to my visa card and they blocked my card, (was supposed to be $156.00)

They reactivated within 24 hours

(They have pattern analysis that will freeze accounts automatically when out of pattern)

Check this out:

Today's exchange rate is 1.23AUD to the USD, and I bet ANZR can't justify the $43 discrepancy - that's nearly 10% if the withdrawal. Remember, this is before ANZ's fees. Suddenly makes WU look like choir boys in the greater scheme of things.

Looks like it unfortunately. I went to the owntown Canadia bank this morning and sure enough, was charged $4. C#nts! Ah well, nothing we can do about it. All the bitchin' and whingin' in the world isn't going to change ANY banks policies - tha greedy muthafukn....whoooaa, damn,its not witching hour yet, so I'm still in control Dragon boy. SOON though mate, just you wait!
Made my weekly visit to the Canadia ATM in Takeo Town this morning. Seems the charge hasn't yet reached this far, as I wasn't charged a fee. :hattip:

This appears on the Canadia Bank web site.
"Mastercard,Cirrus,Maestro,Plus and Union Pay, which are issued outside of Cambodia will now charge US$4 for Cash Withdrawal(except for Visa issued by banks in Europe).
It will take effect from December 15,2014 onward.
It would appear it all depends on what card you have as to whether you get charged or not. Also the atm in Takeo Town now gives verbal instructions in a Scottish accent. :hattip:

I went to Maybank with my Aussie issued Visa, no fee. See how long it lasts. It's bad enough now with the crappy exchange rate, down 20%, but getting stung $4 bucks for the transaction really sucks.
