Dear Wargamming,

All you have to do in order to bypass the capital controls that are currently enforced in Greece is have a single bank account in ANY Greek bank... as simple as that.. why dont you do it ???

I guess they'd need to actually register as a greek company to do that, thus getting subject to greek banking laws. And they surely could not move money from their greek bank account to anywhere else.

 

So ... no point in doing it, really.

The thing is that not even PayPal is working, nor major credit cards. Not even Paysafe cards.

There is almost nothing that you can do in order to buy anything from Greece.

 

I live in Cyprus and I used to help most of my (ex)clanmates and friends by sending them what they wanted as gifts and they would give the money to my brother (who lives in Greece), but  last week I found out that I am blocked and can not send anything to anyone. They told me that it was suspicious and it could have been a credit card fraud or PayPal fraud, eventhough for the last few months I spent more than 500 euros in sending goodies to friends without any problem.

 

One of their answers was "Our specialists are working to make purchases available of everyone, but it might take some time to provide proper solution"
