Perhaps a Rothschild could get a French bank to give me an account? BNP changed their story. I don’t have to have €10,000 to open. No. I have to deposit €20,000. Not happening. My accountant has warned me to stay under 10k to avoid extra IRS filing. HBSC said they would call back. No. Tomorrow I see a gal at Societe Generale. Fingers crossed.
It’s all the terrorist money laundering. And it’s about expats paying taxes. And little folks like me get caught in the middle.
