A friend of mine was emailed a list of approved banks a couple of years ago. HBL I think was in that list. I just want to make sure if any account will work. I have an account in Standard Chartered bank.
List of banks for LFT: 01. Habib Bank Ltd. 02. National Bank of Pakistan 03. United Bank Ltd. 04. MCB Bank Ltd. 05. Allied Bank Ltd. 06. Bank al Falah Ltd. 07. Habib Metropolitan Bank Ltd. 08. Bank of Punjab Ltd. 09. KASB Bank Ltd. 10. JS Bank Ltd. 11. Dubai Islamic Bank Ltd. Ref: https://www.odesk.com/community/node/17580
oDesk has a contract with some Pakistani bank (it could be HBL) to send money in rupee on oDesk behalf and get USD. Any bank in Pakistan, can receive this LFT, (because its just a local transfer from a local bank on oDesk behalf), there is no recommended bank list, got it ?
