I really have no reason to lie.

That's quite terrible. Maybe I should record the conversation next time so that others will stop making accusations of me lying.

Chill..

I'm sure you are not lying, like many others before you. Just that the infos given by the staffs are often misleading and such rumours have been around for a long long time.. So the veterans here will attempt to crush such rumours unless the official report / memo is out in black and white.

Bro, I believe you are NOT lying.
But remember the image below before spreading news that can NOT be confirmed... .

hi, basically most of the bankers are just lazy ass shitters or that the company impose a very high quota on other types of sales for them so they can't be bothered to waste their time opening accounts when their time can be better spent doing something else. they are not discouraging ppl from opening maxigain, they just want to siam opening accounts if they are able to.

i went to 2-3 branches before managing to open one account with $0 balance. i shared my experience here : https://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/1...-post3767.html

after my experience i understood why some of the bankers/staff are like that. its just the nature of the bank for some reason. it took me close to 45 mins to open one account having to fill in a lot of details(still ask about employment details, company name, annual income, etc etc) for the banker/form when i only need 15 mins or less opening a savings account in another bank (other banks - ic/address/set up ibanking acc- thats it). as someone mentioned before to me, if they 45 mins to open an account which doesn't contribute to quota, what if someone else walks in during that 45 mins and want to sign up a credit card account or other type of banking products that contribute to their quota? thats the problem

Can someone who opened maxigain account recently recommend me a Citibank officer who opened the account for you and does not tell some bs about upcoming changes etc. i'm so fed up with some guys at the branches i went to who keep telling about those rumor things and asked me to deposit 70k instead of 15k which does not sound right to me. Any recommendation of a good one is appreciated. Thanks!
Just tell them you intend to fund the minimum sum within 2 months. Then you fund the account by either fast-ing in $15k or bring a cashier order.

They are trying to deter more people from opening the accounts, I think.

All else fails, just go to MacDonald's house?

actually, I am thinking if they are really Citi employee, probably just contractor that needs to meet their quota, their attitude will make Citi brand bad!

It will be available in your account on the 1st, but will be dated on the last day of the previous month.
