OR it has to be maximum of a transfer of a person per day? Just like saying, if 20 people are to send me money individually, will it be one person per day (making a total of 20 days) of all of them can send their money same day/anytime?? Thanks

But they didn’t require for any swift code all they asked for is account name, bank, account number and address the address of the receiver. Also the money was to be delivered in minutes according to the online receipt I got. How long do you think it will take for me to get the money and you talked about it the money is a lot I will need proof of ownership. Is 10,000 aus dollars within that range. Thanks.

  12. Please, I do not have Dom, money gram, western union accounts etc. I received a swift copy receipt number with the attached telex copy for a transaction of $65,323 yesterday.

Please, what can I do? Thanks for your nice write up.
