    Default Wire Tranfer Problem

    My father wire transfered me $5000CDN at Bank of China in Hong Kong.
    To my ScotiaBank account in Toronto,Canada...

    he went to the bank to do this august 14th. and now its already august 21st.

    I still don't see the money... I phoned scotiabank 2 days ago, and check, they don't see any money coming in. And they told me to wait for 5 business days.

    Like I don't get it, Cuz its not my first time recieving wire transfer, but with a different bank. (Citi Bank HK to CIBC Canada) and its done within 24 hours.

    how could it takes 5 business days??
    I really don't know what to do, and I don't want to bother my father...

    Is there a simple way for me to check??

    I am kindna worried, plus I need that money quick.
    Or is it because he is using Bank of China??

    When I was in HK... I uses HSBC... so, I know nothing about Bank of China...

    can anyone here give me some advice?? on what is going on?
    or what is gonna happen???

    *I personally don't like Bank of China nor Scotiabank....
    Bank of China... heard too many problems...
    Scotiabank... slow, delay on thing, not flexable.(like i cannot do anything if my branch is closed. The telephone banking is almost completely useless + ones who picked up my phone on tel banking seems to know nothing about banking... giving me almost the same answer on everything. >> Wait 5 business days...

    It seems most likely that the delay is resulting from the actions of a government at one end or the other of the transaction, as opposed to the banks. As you note, completion of wire transfers is usually very quick.

    By the way, my currently account balance is below 0...
    I mean -$8.52....

    How can the government choose to investigate a poor guy like me....
    meanwhile i am waiting for this money to pay my rent...

    lord... help~~~ is there any way so I can speed up the process...

    I really do hate this unknown situation...
    if they are investigating... tell me... at least...

    Now I end up not knowing is it my mistake on information provided...
    or is it the gov... or the bank...
