Hoo RaH!! The transfer we made last night went through without a hitch!!! The movers are paid, and all is well in the world today, at least for now. ;-D. I spent the day on the phone yesterday, pitching a hissy fit and probably sounding like a deranged person with a bag full of weapons, but I finally got hold of someone who was interested enough to help.
Seems like the answer, in reality, is very simple. The first bank officer I spoke to a month ago should have told me that SafePass has to be set up inside the US. Then you opt for a SafePass card rather than give them a cellular number. Use the card for the first time in the US, and after that it can be used anywhere in ther world.
I am still skeptical, but at least I won't be ripping someone's heart out with my fingernails.
