A: This is an international banking question, not a question about "Stockbroker Fraud."

Advice: If you do not have a lawyer who is competent to operate successfully in the difficult area of international wire fraud you should seek one immediately. But please be forewarned that-while the amount of money "missing" is very substantial in your eyes--most experienced international banking lawyers may not think so. Why? Because there are $Billions gone missing every day, all over the globe. Fortunately, most of these problems seem to solve themselves, especially if the person(s) who are looking for their money have competent counsel assisting them.
