I want to transfer money from my bank here in the TRNC to my son's bank account in the UK, Is it safe to do this, as I have heard a couple of stories where money goes missing?
Thank you Christine

Loads of tails re transferring money to and from Cyprus personally I think it is easier to transfer money to uk but they do charge here . Why don’t you try a small amount first .

Just a thought

I thoroughly endorse this idea!

Although most of the issues seem to involve transfers to TRNC, I always do a small 'test transfer' to a new account and verify that it has gone through before doing the whole amount!

Most issues are caused by not getting all of the details 'exactly right' - so it's worth taking the time to check...

If the amount is less than say 3k sterling then I may be able to help. I will transfer the amount to the uk account from my uk bank (near instant) and you give me the cash sterling here in person. I would charge 0.5 %, So for example you give me 1005 sterling cash here and i transfer 1000 sterling to the account in uk. PM me if interested.

Just in case anyone thinks that this offer sounds a little 'unusual', I would just like to state that I would have 100% confidence in Erol to conduct this transaction!

Thanks Keith. If I can facilitate a bank somewhere not getting an exorbitant fee for moving someones money from Cyprus to uk or visa versa, then I am always 'game' so to speak.

Thank you very much for all your help here, the transaction is on hold for the moment, but probably will be used in the future in which case I will contact you xx
