How to force a bank to release my money ?

#1
Does anyone know of an ethics board or some way to pressure a bank to release a client`s funds ?
To make a long story short, I wire transferred money to my own account at a major Argentine
bank in June. There was nothing wrong with the transfer itself. The bank has not yet deposited
my money. They have now agreed to return my wire transfer "but I must wait". I can`t wait long.
Help !

This is a shocking story. May we ask which bank is holding up your funds?

It is all in Spanish but here it goes ( from the Central Bank )

If I was you I would ask to talk to the branch manager, explain the situation and let him know that you will report it to the Central bank and media. Let him know as well that you will start legal action against the bank. You need to properly file the complaint in order to get things going, so follow the instructions on those links.

Start legal actions first, that your lawyer talks later.
You have to file it before the corralito beggins.

Todo está en español, pero aquí va (del Banco Central)

Si yo fuera usted, le pediría que hablara con el gerente de la sucursal, le explicaría la situación y le haría saber que lo informará al Banco Central y a los medios. Hágale saber también que iniciará acciones legales contra el banco. Debe presentar la queja adecuadamente para que todo funcione, por lo tanto, siga las instrucciones en esos enlaces.
Thanks so much for your links and ideas ! Some one in Buenos Aires is dealing with this on my behalf and I will make sure he knows about your info !

Estoy siendo duramente golpeado por la demora de los bancos. Envié la transferencia en dólares estadounidenses, en junio, pero el banco la recibió en ARS. Actualmente estoy en México, donde la moneda se ha fortalecido frente a los $ US. Quizás BBVA / Banco Francés están prestando mi dinero a una tasa muy alta de interés.
Estoy seguro de que mi poder de compra será mucho menor cuando recupere mi dinero que cuando envié la transferencia bancaria ahora en el limbo.
¡Les agradezco a las personas amables por sus enlaces e ideas! Gracias también por contar
acerca de TransferWise! Así es como puedo depositar dinero en mi cuenta en BBVA / Banco Francés.
(Is it only my computer or is everyone seeing this site in Spanish tonight?)

This is so strange ! Everything is in English now except my responses from earlier tonight. I did not adjust anything. I have never used automatic translate on my computer and all other sites I went to were in their normal language. Maybe there`s an automatic translate option for this site ? Interesting.
