For years, I have been sending readers to my banker at Bank of Montreal in Vancouver, Canada: James Curran. He was transferred to their Delta branch on the U.S. border but near Point Roberts, not the mainland of the U.S. That was too far to go, but I could still call him and mail deposits to him.
But then four of the deposits I mailed to Delta disappeared off the face of the earth. So I wanted to start sending the deposits back to the main branch in Vancouver where I never had any trouble with them being received.
Last time I called James Curran, his message said he was on indefinite leave because of a family emergency. I have no idea what that’s about and hope it turns out all right. But that and the mail problems indicated to me that you readers and I need a new banker back an 595 Burrard Street where James originally worked.
After several unsuccessful tries at getting a new Burrard Street banker—they did not return my calls—I was called by a very nice woman who had taken care of two problems I had even though she had insufficient information. She did her own research to find the needed information. I was impressed. I told her I needed a new banker there. She said, “I’m your new banker,” not like she had been assigned to be my new banker. She’s just a take-charge kinda gal.
I asked her to send me an email which would have all her contact info. She said she would but I initially had not received it. So I Googled her name online to see if it would come up.
With James, I felt I needed to warn readers about one unusual aspect of his appearance. He’s 6'5".
I need to give you a warning about our new banker’s unusual appearance, too. Her name is Tannaz Alesafar. The first Google result was her Linkedin profile. It had a photo. “My goodness,” I thought. “That is one very good looking banker!” I was apparently not the first to have that thought. As I read further down the search results, I found a YouTube of her. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_J4vrSuOKeo
She was the 2009 Miss Universe Canada!!
