Via an agent who sets up companies in tax havens we got introduced to the Federal Bank of the Middle East (FBME Bank). There customer service was amazing but unfortunately, as it seems, they facilitated a platform that could easily be used by criminals to launder money and finance terrorism. Not a nice thought.

We believe the central bank did its job by closing the bank. The misinformation and lack of information was challenging during the last two years but as we said in our blog posting here, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

With this blog we just want to let you know how we managed to get through this difficult time (without professional help we would probably need much longer and it would be more frustrating without a doubt) and once we have we will inform you that we received our moneys back. At this current stage all looks promising.

We’ve learned from this situation that it is not recommended to wait too long for things to change. This will most probably end in a disaster. Pay close attention to details and save what you can while you still can.
