Another odd thing about my attempted money transfer to BBVA / Banco Frances is that at the Buenos Aires end, the transfer was invisible to me. The bank didn`t notify me, the ATM didn`t show any sign of it. It took numerous phone calls to BBVA/ Banco Frances before a clerk admitted the money was in Argentina, but the bank didn`t want to deposit it. At the sending end in Mexico, they didn`t know where the money was ! It was a major international bank and they told me they didn`t know where the money went after it left Mexico ! Incompetence, I suspect. IThat`s another reason to use an alternative to bank transfers.
