I believe that the fee for withdrawing investment funds and sending the money back to the US (or another country) is now 4%. One representative of a credit union made the following comment; “yes, that is the current rate but every 6 months the rate will be reduced by 0.5%, so in 3 and a half years the rate will be 0, that is by government law and for 2 years the rates have been reducing, so it is a good business to invest here.”

Can anyone verify that this is now actually a law? This is very important to those of us who want to invest in these CDs but also intend to return to the US at some time in the future. Thanks.
