Wimdu recently removed PayPal as payout option for hosts and only allows bank transfer (I’ve got very few bookings on Wimdu btw). I got the following email requesting personal information for the payout when I discovered the payout is missing for the Wimdu guests I am hosting right now:
To proceed with the payment please provide the following information:
If the intended payee is a person:
Date of birth,
Place of birth,
Full postal address,
The purpose of the payment
Can you also please confirm whether there is any direct or indirect involvement of any prohibition countries (North Korea, Iran, Syria, Cuba, Sudan (Republic of Sudan or North Sudan), South Sudan (Republic of South Sudan) or the region of Crimea) in this transaction?
Anybody else had the same issue for the first time bank transfer payout? It sounds very suspicious to me.
