Two separate, unconnected and for that matter "poles apart" ex-pats have told me recently of unusual behavior by their banks, BanCentro.
Both involved having to compete a detailed statement regarding their personal and business activities (both here and at home). Home for one was the US, the other South America.
One had several bank accounts frozen and only managed to get one opened up on the promise of returning with the information they requested. They asked the US ex-pat for their most recent tax assessment.
Both have been here many years.
So why the sudden interest?
