Whatever you do, avoid AlfaBank!

Post Posted: Sat Mar 05, 2016 12:52 am

i have worked with 4 major banks in Russia.

Sber.........is Sber
Raiffaisen is Great! service is great (if sometimes cumbersome)
Tinkoff - very nice

Have mercy on yourself and avoid Alfa, when it comes to money, nothing EVER goes propperly with alfabank!
first time i had to wait almost 4 months toe get my 4 sallaries................4 months of working and not being able to get my money.
now they think they found a problem with my bank account (different bank) which is non of their business at all, (they got a legal payment order and refuse to accept it) because some minor detail is not to their liking, Sber transfered with no problem for 16 months.............tinkoff the same............but , as i mentioned Nothing goes without problems in that damn bank!

if you value your time, AVOID it!
if you value your health , AVOID IT!
if you want less stress and anger in your life , AVOID ALFA!

If you know anyone who is considering alfa, send them here, i will try to change their mind as hard as i can!
