I look in the yellow pages for this account, but couldn't find anything either.
My husband works for a Sapnish bank and can confirm info about this bank. Sorry it's sun. and siesta time, so a bit hard to ask him!!
Anyway I worked for various investment banks and I can tell you what you normally will need to open an account. This stuff about 4,500 euros or dollars soounds pretty suspicious to me.
Normally, to open an account you first need to define whether it will be a residental or non-residental account. Which depends on whether you legal reside in the country or not. Second, any account needs to be opened BEFORE money is transferred, and while you may often have a minimum deposit to maintain the account opened for more that a few months 4,500 seems awfully high to me for a checking or savings account within a bank.
Third, my sister was "taken" for 20,000 usd (and my parents taken for a helluva lot more in another scam) in a similar story, so be really careful about transfering money to someone you do not know or where terms are vague.
My advice is NEVER to transfer money to anyone without checking all of the fact first.
I looked thru the yellow pages of Madrid and could not find an address for the this bank.
If you have any more questions, fell free to contact me [email removed]
