Subject: Banking
Date: Thursday, January 06, 2005
Name: Tami Kramer
Message: I am an American living in France, paid in US Dollars with most of my outgoings in Euros. I am looking for a bank which will allow me to have an account in US Dollars (Compte devise) with internet access to the account, so I can change money into Euros as I need it.

Does anyone know of such a bank? Credit Lyonnais advertises that they are completely online... so I wonder if they could help me. Credit Agricole allows me to have a dollars account, BUT I can't see it from their online software so cannot see when my salary is credited and cannot change to Euros online.

Thanks in advance!

Tami

Message Your best bet is the next time back in America,open a bank account and have them issue you a Bank Card that you can use anywhere in the world. The French uses only Euros these days. They don't accept the dollar. Good Luck!

Message A publication I picked up at the French consulate in San Francisco has an advertisement for Bank of the West, "La seule banque californienne a l'accent francais." It's a division of Banque Nationale de Paris. The main California office is at 295 Bush Street, San Francisco 94104; phone (415) 765-4886. Perhaps they'll have what you're looking for.
