I got the funds I wired in June to my BBVA/Banco Frances account, returned to me finally ! I believe the return was in response to a letter that BancoFrances asked me to send them, which I did. The bonus was that the bank had not converted my funds to ARS, so I didn`t lose on the devalutation. They charged me US$107 to return my funds. I found my treatment at the bank bizarre. Then again, I had a bad time when I had an account at HSBC in Argentina also. Thanks so much everyone for your kind advice !
