DELTA: I DID ASK TBI BANK IF I CAN USE MASTER CARD ABROAD...
ANSWER FROM TBI ...
"you can use it in withdrawals from ATMs and direct purchase from the points of sale as well as in the Internet such as subscriptions and airline reservations, hotels, shopping sites and promotion in social networking pages in any country of the world except Brazil, Indonesia, Syria and Iran."
GodsServant: Sounds International to me. How can you use it at a PR (program rate) Delta?
AHWman: Family, Frank maintains that the CBI has said that they will delete 3 zeros from the exchange rate, however the most recent articles that I’ve read from the CBI seem to clearly indicate that they intend to delete 3 zeros from the currency. What am I missing? Are we just hoping or assuming that they’re referring to the exchange rate, or do we actually have documentation specifically indicating such?
Matthew1: When they mention deleting the 3 000's in this manner they are meaning to lift 3 000's from the exchange rate but also taking the physical notes with 3 000's on them out of circulation. That is why they were so insistent of trying to get the citizens over the years to come in to the bank and turn in their 3 ZERO notes. The 25,000, 10,000, and 5,000 Dinar notes.
What happens to a currency when you have less of it in circulation? The value goes up. Supply and Demand in play again. Iraq has been trying to lower the PHYSICAL NOTE count for years also. The citizens are smarter than that. That's why many citizens are still holding on to their larger 3 000 notes. I hope this helps.
The citizens have been promised purchasing power for years. I pray we are there. When the 3 ZEROS are lifted from the exchange rate the purchasing power will rise in Iraq. But, Dinar holders like us will really benefit because we hold 3'000 notes that WE will be able to exchange at full international market value.
In Iraq a Dinar is a Dinar. Outside of Iraq a Dinar could be IMO be trading as much as $3.21 to $3.91 very shortly after they raise the value by dropping the 3 000's from the exchange rate.
Look at the CBI Website where it says that the current exchange rate to the dinar is 1,190 Dinars to every 1 US Dollar. That gives us the approximate current exchange rate of .00084 or 1/1190.
When the 3 000's are lifted it very well may show on the CBI website $1.19, or .84. (1190 minus 3 decimal points to the left and .00084 minus 3 decimal points to the right.) This is for the Iraq citizens in Country. The international (OUR) Exchange Rate should be IMO be closer to the number mentioned above. Many individuals get confused with how this works.
FRANK AND TEAMS have been teaching this too us for years now. Many of us old timers finally get it. I Think LOL. I hope I have helped and not confused you even more. I am glad to help.
Don961: from 2013 , my notes ... sorry , news site no longer running :
Said committee member Abdul Hussein al-Yasiri that “the process of deletion of zeros from the national currency will begin during 2014, through an agreement with the central bank,” noting that “this project will lead to reducing the proportion of the national currency in circulation from four billion to one billion.”
He added that “the size will be reduced to a quarter and this will enhance the value and easy to transport,” noting that “fraud or manipulation of currency cash, it will be very difficult.”
