Default Wired bank funds seem lost

My aunt wired funds from El Salvador to my mom's Chase account here in California 3 weeks ago. No money has been received so we have been back to the El Salvador bank 3 times. They claim their intermediary bank is Citibank and we need to speak with Citibank, but Citibank says the bank in El Salvador needs to contact them, not us. The El Salvador bank staff don't want to talk to us at all. What recourse do we have? It seems Citibank received the funds here but has not transferred the funds to Chase, as instructed. Thank you.

An attorney may have better luck. Hire one.

You should contact the customer care staff of the El Salvador bank and demand for a written statement of procedure you have to perform to clear the transaction. If they are not cooperating you should consult an attorney to initiate a complaint against the bank.

"Hire an attorney" is not needed here.

Use small claims court for free, deal with customer service relentlessly, inform the state banking commission,

There are a lot of options before wasting money "hiring a lawyer".

Wires get delayed all the time. And most just work out on their own, though the delay can be frustrating.

Hiring a lawyer for this kind is issue should be a VERY last resort.

I send wires many times a month and it seems a lost wire is not - unfortunately - a rare event.

But the bank always gets them located and back in order eventually. Unfortunately it sometimes takes a couple of months.
