The Usual Suspect - 2017-10-24

Dear Ms E........,

My pension plans XXXXXXX and XXXXXXX

This morning, Tuesday 24th October, the BOC texted my agent, who just happens to be my Chinese wife, that a TT had been received for processing into my account.

This afternoon I turned up there, after which I was questioned as to why XXX Life Insurance Co of XXXXXX, AN INSURANCE COMPANY, GOD FORBID, was attempting to send me GBP.

I suspect that whenever foreign currency is TT'ed to a western individual in the PRC, bank officials reserve the right to ask why said individual has arranged said transfer(s)! The word 'pension' cuts little ice here. It boils down to a matter of TRUST, and western individuals aren't held in high esteem in that regard!

I will have to return 2 days later to get the transfer effected, maybe, maybe not!

It seems to me that Chinese banking procedure is weird, but not wonderful!

What would help me, and later my wife, after I am deceased, is an e-mail from yourselves to me stating that INSURANCE COMPANIES by name in the west also remit pensions and bond encashments, completely distinct services from INSURANCE/ASSURANCE.

Yours sincerely,

XXXXXX

I am out of the Office until the 25 October 2017 and will deal with my emails on my return.

The problem seems to have been caused by the fact that your TT advice doesn't SPECIFY the reason for the proposed TT from yourselves to me.

I told them it was an annual private occupational pension. However, my bank is sceptical. It is controlled by a central regulatory office, and the boss thereof is a Commie bar steward.

My better half is having difficulties with that office re attempted bond encashments through another insurance company, one that administers my wife's bond, said bond having been transferred previously from me to her. The bar steward refuses to meet my wife. He is aloof and full of himself.

Yours sincerely,

XXXXXX.
