I bank at a regional bank which doesn't cover the whole territory. The nearest branch is 1600 km away. My car is damaged and I can't use public transport because of the strikes.
Recently I unlocked $18,000 worth of foreign funds which had been locked up for a year because of regulatory problems. I loaded them on a foreign prepaid card and withdrew the entire amount in cash in a single day. I then realized that I can't deposit this money, not even a single euro bank note into my French bank.
I don t feel secure with such high amount with me. How can I deposit them in my bank account since I have no access to transportation?
French banks don t want to hear about peoples who earned a large amount of a usd recently from us company because of fear from the iris even if the income was taxable in France (this is about an other transfer which appears on my bank statement).
The current account I have was opened when I was still a child (and by the way with a contract which basically enititled me everything for free which is no longer open to new applicants since 2008).
They keep me because the account is already open but I am no longer welcome at any French bank otherwise.
