You are to send the courier fee with the insurance from any of the above charges to receive your ATM CARD within 48hrs. The ATM CARD must be insured to avoid theft of the draft by courier attendants.

This Bank can't release the ATM CARD to any courier service without insurance as this Bank is not ready to be held liable for the ATM CARD if stolen, therefore, proper documentation of the ATM CARD must be done from this Bank before the ATM CARD will be handed over to any service company for delivery.

Do not ask this Bank to pay the courier services, we do not engage in free job as this is a Reputable Bank which you knows the ethics.

We are not charging you for the Bank processing and preparation fee, so do not ask the Bank to pay any cost for your ATM CARD as the Bank won't answer that. So, accord this BANK with full respect to get your ATM CARD.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
