Scary Business Practice
Used Xoom a couple of times successfully. I Had to reset my password and it warned me that if i forced a reset it would have to delete all my saved bank accounts. Good security practice which I’m fine with so i went ahead with it. Then when i was processing a transfer I entered my bank account and it returned an error stating that this account already existed.. I tried my debit card and received same message. but I thought that it deleted all my previously saved accounts? I didn’t get an option to use a saved account. Called customer service and the person very briefly told me that they could. It delete my accounts in the backend and there was no way for me to try to use them so there is nothing they can do and that the only option was for me to use another account. I explained that those were my only two accounts checking and debit and that I don’t have a different account to use. Normally people just have one checking account. His answer bluntly was “sorry there is nothing we can do”. He pretty much told me that I have to go do business with someone else. Needless to say I created an account with Remitfy and worked perfectly as advertised. cheaper fees also. Now I need to figure out how to get Xoom to delete my accounts from their systems. It’s scary to know that they keep everyone’s accounts in their databases permanently and their systems is so messed up that their customer service is telling people that they can’t erase them!!
Painful to resolve issues, really frustrating solution
Let’s start with the obvious, xoom came to offer cheaper cost while transferring money internationally. While is true they cost a bit less, I would say I have wasted way more (through wasting my time) in an attempt to save few bucks by using their service, unfortunately so far unsuccessfully and I will not try anymore - not worth it.
I have tried to use the service 4 times and I always got the transfer cancelled. When I asked for a reason I always got the answer that I should check the beneficiary name, address or bank account number. I called customer service and overall experience was horrible - not a single person who can provide you with a clear reason why the transaction was rejected. Simply answers like: “Our partner has rejected the transaction, please verify the account with your bank and make another transaction”.. Totally useless and they never give you a proper answer from the recipient bank clearly stating whether is them rejecting the money or simply “Xoom partner” - who you can’t know who is because you can’t call them directly - doesn’t know what they are doing.
I wouldn’t recommend this solution to anybody.
Switching due to bad rates and bad customer service
Switching to Remitly: Couple of weeks back, I had been getting better rates on higher dollar amounts on Xoom ($10, $400, $1000, $2900 had different rates). Since yesterday, the rate is fixed for any dollar amount (where did my better rates go). When I called in customer care, the guy wasted my 40 minutes explaining how global exchange rates work, how rates wont change with dollar amount, etc. I asked him to check my transaction history to see the rate difference I received earlier for a $10 and $1000 transaction. He said he was surprised by this unusual phenomenon (he was not aware of such thing until I told him - you need better training) and said dollar rate is fixed based on locked-in rate (and then he went about explaining locked-in rate). He went back into explaining me how global exchange rates work. For 40 minutes, I did not receive my answer. Annoyed, I hung up saying I am not getting a proper explanation for an issue, I am being lectured on global rates (when that is clearly irrelevant to the current issue), and I am not getting the old incentives I used to get on rates for higher dollar amounts. Why should I stick around with Xoom?
