Remember when I wrote about Western Union with TEB bank in Turkey to send money to Malaysia. Well, now they do not accept Western Union transfer anymore. I am not sure what is the real reason because the Western Union sticker is still on their door.
So I tried my luck with Yapi Kredi bank just in front TEB bank. Because I saw Western Union sticker on their wall. The guy at the counter can speak English quite well, and yes they can process my Western Union to Malaysia.
Yapi Kredi Western Union
Only one problem with Yapi Kredi bank, the que is quite long especially office hours. Furthermore I don’t have account with Yapi Kredi bank, so I am not their priority. Sometime I have to wait almost one hour.
But since I have no other choice, I fill my time by playing games on my Zenfone2. This continues for a few months until Yapi Kredi Western Union have a system problem. Imagine you wait for almost an hour and when finally its you turn, the guy at the counter say “sorry Western union OFFLINE”. Yapi Kredi was my last hope to send money, so I walk up to 5 banks to ask about Western Union. All of them gave me the same answer “OFFLINE”.
Then I think to myself, is there any other option that I can use to transfer money from oversea to Malaysia. I already asked before about Bank Telegraphic Transfer from Turkey o Malaysia. The lady from TEB Bank said that it will cost USD 100. So not an option. So my best chances right now is Western Union because the fee for transfer is quite reasonable. But I have to ask everyday when the Western Union system is back online. Which is not practical and time consuming.
DBS Malaysia Remit
Until one of my Singaporean friend here in Ankara offered his help to transfer money from his DBS Bank account in Singapore to my Maybank account. Plus, the commission fee is lower than Western Union around 50 lira. Luckily, DBS is currently have a DBS Malaysia Remit promotion, no charge (S$0) fee for transfer money to Malaysian Bank till December 2015. You can receive money on same day transfer. So no more walking and waiting to the bank. I just asked my friend to transfer money online, and I will pay him in Lira.
At first we tried to transfer only RM200 to make sure the transfer is successful. I gave him all my Maybank account number, Maybank swift code and address. Well, its good to have a good friend when time like this.
Moral of the story, make a lot of friends where ever you are. Be nice to them and one day you might need their help.

This entry only can be made when I have enough money in my PayPal to withdraw.That is why it takes so LONG : )
Actually I promised to write entry on Cash Out money from PayPal to Maybank account more than a year ago. I have to wait until I have enough money to show you guys. Hehehe. Just kidding! I did transfer USD 50 to my Maybank account. but totally forget to update about it.
First you must add local bank accounts (saving or current) to your PayPal account. Its easy if you follow the step. There are slightly different between cash out money from PayPal to Credit/Debit Card and to your Local Bank Account. (For my example here I use Maybank account).
1. Cheaper – Its cheaper to withdraw money to your local bank than your card. PayPal will charge you RM 20 if you use your card. If you transfer money to Bank Account more than RM 400 it will be FREE and RM 3 for less than RM 400.
2. Save Time– 2-3 working days for Bank account and up to one week to transfer money to your card.
Conclusion : Save time and money to transfer money from PayPal to your local bank account. (more…)

Thank you for Your Understanding and support
First all, their English is worse. Much worse than mine hehe.
They tried to create panic towards online customer by saying that Maybank2u security has been breached. So user will straight away click the link without checking. They moron just have nothing better to do I guess. So PLEASE don’t EVER trust/believe email asking for your online banking id and password. It doesn’t matter either Maybank2U, PayPal, CIMB Click or any other online banking. Just contact your bank directly to confirm.
Maybank does not send out any e-mail or SMS requesting customers to provide personal banking ID or PIN or credit card information. Please do not log in through website links contained in emails supposedly from Maybank or other institutions. Be alert or you may fall victim to a financial scam.
