latest news I got today from Mr I is that the Warka and other private banks in Iraq only have corresponding banks in the middle east, ie Jordan, UAE, Lebanon, Turkey, and they will not make 3rd party payments. The CBI is aware of this problem and everyone is working to resolve it.

So no wire transfers available,,,

I've been trying to get Warka to transfer money to Al Karmal Brokerage, maybe I'll ask them to mail a certified check (across the street).

Dear Sir,

With regards to your request in transferring your funds to the USA please note that Warka Bank does not have a corresponding bank that will transfer funds to the USA and this a general issue faced by the entire private banking sector. The entire private banking sectors corresponding banks are limited in the Middle East (Jordan, UAE and Lebanon) as well as Turkey all of whom according to the internal regulations will not execute third party payments. All the private banks in Iraq can not execute third payments where this issue has been brought to the attention of the CBI where we are all working together to resolve this matter.

With regards to the KYC this is mandatory which all banks in Iraq must comply with whereby the CBI strongly demands and insists that all cliental fill out this form. An English version is currently being updated and will be shortly provided by our account management department.


Respectfully,

Mohammad K. Issa

I've been trying to get Warka to transfer money to Al Karmal Brokerage, maybe I'll ask them to mail a certified check (across the street). I specifically asked about transfering my money to Al Karmal and was told by Mr I that Warka can't transfer it to Al Karmal.

Are you dealing with another bank yet in Iraq or just Karmal Brokerage? I'm going to try and email a couple banks and see what they say

Just Al Karmal. I would like to transfer all my Warka funds to Al Karmal and be done with Warka. I was joking of getting them to write a check but it would be nice since they are in the same city. Maybe Precious Jackson could help me.
