Adri's lad had a similar experience with that bank in that nobody could send him a bank transfer for salary etc, but everything else was okay. He had to close the account, not before transferring the balance to his mum's account, then open a new one. Apparently you can't open a new one and then transfer the balance from the old one. I'm glad I no longer have an Argie bank account. Frankly, it was always more trouble and cost that it was worth.
