I am an American attorney but I will try to help you. The government agency in Spain who are in charge of bank regulation must have information on the bank in America that took over Standard Chartered's Spanish operations. Banks just don't disappear. However, my deep concern for you is that the type of banking you were doing, with numbered accounts and no records, is not allowed in the USA. Therefore, even if you were to find the successor bank in the USA they are not obligated to pay you unless you have the paperwork to prove you are the owner of the account. And in order to prove that, the account itself would have to be opened in your name. You were not provided information about the merger because you had requested that you not receive written communications from the bank. If you wish to try to contact Standard Chartered in the USA their address is:
One Madison Avenue
New York, New YorkNNN-NN-NNNN/p>
which is the best choice and
how can i file a lawsuit if i live outside US
moreover the expenses that i will bear what could they be in the case
do you really think that old account statements and payslips are a chance to 'recostruct' as u say
which is the best choice a complaint or a suit
