    Losing when sending Dollars to Argentina ?

    Thanks so much for your thoughts. I have no problems with Canadian regulators. The problem is with my bank in Argentina not allowing me to deposit money into my own account. As I have no connections with US, I cannot use XOOM. Thanks for the info, though.
