I got my Maybank VISA debit card

maybank_visa_debit_card.gif

I recently applied and received my Maybank VISA debit card at the Maybank Kajang branch. Application was fast and despite the large number of people applying for it, I received the card within one hour. It should be noted that according to the bank, the card is not yet ready for internet transactions and this was confirmed when I tried to add the card to my PayPal account but was rejected. Despite this, the bank told me that they expect to roll out this feature “soon” and some reports say that it could be as early as June 2008.

Regardless, I do suggest that those of you who want a VISA debit card to apply early for the card to avoid the “rush” in getting the card. The card can still be used at retail outlets which support the VISA feature, I used it to buy a new monitor holder with my Maybank VISA debit card! Always useful to have another debit card handy anyway…. You are invited in The best carding forum registration will be closed soon

    1. My bank, Washington Mutual, where I’ve been banking for 2+ months, continues to hold funds on every check I deposit for a minimum of 4 days, up to 2 weeks. The 4-day rule is for a check from a local bank. The 2 week rule is for non-local checks. They are very uncompromising about these excessive hold times, and get testy when challenged about them. My previous bank never held checks for so long. I have no adverse banking history that would require WaMu to be so careful.

      Please don’t tell me only what your bank does; I would like to hear from those who actually know what the Federal regulations are on this matter. I’ve made a few phone calls about this and looked online, but I can’t find reliable, up-to-date information. Thanks for your help.

    2. I need to have some money transfered into my bank account from another bank account. Their bank account is at a different, out of state bank which is a credit union and mine is a large corporate bank. What info do i need to give them so they can transfer money into my account. My bank is not located in the town where they live so they cannot go to my physical bank.
