The SM is protected in other ways, and a lease could be canceled, but the rate is a "preservice" issue, as Dan mentioned.
I have fielded that request many times. In some cases it is misinformation, and in others it is just an attempt to get something they wouldn't if they didn't ask. I suspect that somewhere, some bank(s) have lowered the rate for a transfer overseas.
What you need to be asking is, will you get paid by allotment, where will the car be, and remind them insurance is required.
My opinions are not necessarily my employers.
