Open a WARKA Account STEP BY STEP, thanks J

Thanks again Breitling,

Here's a little something back.  I opened my Warka account very easily and passed this on to another person who also opened an account in a matter of 2 or 3 days.

Step 1
Scan your Passport and save as a PDF.

Step 2
Type up an authorisation for Warka to open accounts in your name. 
Print it and SIGN it.
Then scan it and save as a PDF

Here is what mine said:
Authorisation to Open Warka Bank Accounts
This document is authorisation to open Warka Bank Accounts in the name of
Mr Tom Jones.
Date of Birth:  10/01/1964
Signed:                                                                                    Date:           

Step 3
Write an email to these two email addresses: <>;
and <>;

Here is what mine said:
Dear Sirs,

I would appreciate your assistance in opening personal Warka IQD and USD saving accounts.

I have provided the following attachments:
My passport and a
Signed authorisation to establish and open Warka Bank accounts in my name.

My Contact details are:
Tim Fxxxxx

000 876 999

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Yours faithfully,
Tim Fxxxxx.

Step 4
Now attach the pdf of your passport
AND the SIGNED pdf of your authorisation for the bank to open your accounts.
Within a few days you should be notified of your account numbers and details of how to send money via Commerzbank to your accounts.
This is where I started having problems.
You must be EXTRA careful that your bank sends the money correctly.
Take the time to be sure ALL the information you can include is there.
My wife's bank sent money to the wrong account within Comerzbank, and they could not forward it.
This takes weeks to fix.  So be very pedantic that they are doing the right thing.
Ask for a trace to be put on the transaction if it all goes quiet.
Remember Iraq is not open for banking on Fridays or Saturdays.
Hope this helps!
