    I've contacted several lawyers today, 2 of them answered and mentioned, they have clients with the same issues - without mentioning any additional details.
    I'm not saying, we have to contact any of the lawyers which answered, if you have better proposal, I'm open for it.

    Unfortunately the ''conversation" feature implemented in this forum is available only to promoted members, so we can not use it. This is, why I've asked admin for a permission to list my email here. Please contact me on [email protected], I hope we can somehow join our forces and get the money back.

    Hey guys. in the same boat as all of you, and received the same blanket statement that I need to sign.
    As for the fee changes, you can easily compare November's statement with today's:
    November: Rietumu Banka - Maintenance
    Today: Rietumu Banka - Account opening
    Half of the document has been completely revised, including the 10%/5K euro, 200 euro per hour due diligence and of course the 1K monthly maintenance fee.

    Has anyone tried to contact their account manager at Rietumu to get clarifications on exactly what fees they are planning on charging? If they'd be willing to disclose what the actual charge would be rather than asking me to write them a blank check I'd be willing to consider it.

    Roger, yes, I'm aware of web archive, unfortunately the last snapshot is from november (I've searched all languages). It would be great to have fee structure from march, as a easy proof, that the charges for account maintenance and due diligence were not listed at that time and should not have been deducted.

    I personally did not contact the manager, I think I get a better deal, when my lawyer contacts them

    I contacted my account manager at Rietumu several times but she just kept repeating whats is in the messages. Only this last time she told me that in order to tranfer the money in my business account I must open a deposit account in my name and put 20% of what is held in the business account for no less that 2 years. Absourd! Of course I do not want to di that.
    I instructed where to send the money (same company in another bank in EU), but they have refused to execute the transfer

    This is very interesting. Did she say what amount they left for you to transfer and what will be deducted as due diligence fees ?

    Well, for me this is a good news, as it means, they are willing to negotiate.

    Hi Mary Anny.
    This is indeed intereting. However, did you get the exact same message as we did? Meaning, did they also ask you to sign the "APPLICATION ON THE COMPLETION OF THE PROCEDURE OF THE ENHANCED DUE DILIGENCE " ?

    Hi guys and gals,

    I took the shoot and signed that scary agreement and here's the update so you know what to expect:
    - they charged those 2500 EUR mentioned in the agreement
    - and they also charged another 500 EUR for account closure

    And TODAY I've got the money OUT from Rietumu bank - BOOM

    So in total they charged me 6000 EUR after they suspended the bank account on 19 March

    6k it's a lot for me. I had 30k blocked in that account. Maybe not that much for many but it was everything I've got to run my affiliate marketing business which I've started from an initial investment of 2000 EUR and a lot of passion and hard work .

    I took the bullet and now moving forwards ... lesson learned!

    I received documents from this bank on my home address few months ago, but I never heard about Rietumu bank. I called them but they would not answer. After a long research and contacting them via a lawyer I found out that a shell company was set up under my name, plus bank account. They said they have a copy of my ID card. But I never was in contact with them. Looks like an IDENTITY THEFT. I started further steps to close everything but no further news from them.
    I found this forum now via google and I read about closing the accounts and owners signing a deal to unlock their funds. I just wonder if "my" company still exists and if the identity thief signed the deal under my name. Tried to call the bank several times today but cannot get connected to someone who can help me.

    I signed that agreement to be able to get the money out. And in that agreement it was saying that I will give up to any right to claim anything so I don't think it's relevant to join your action against Rietumu

    I'd rather focus on putting the energy in my business and make the money back instead of chasing these f**kers
