I live in Argentina and I have a US account. Can you recommend me a place where can I buy bitcoins with a wire transfer from my US account but supports citizens from Argentina? coinbase for instance says my country isn’t available…

Hi Veronica,
 
Having a bank account in a country other than the one you reside in does tend to lead to complications in using regular financial services. Exchanges will want to verify your location. I suggest contacting the support of exchanges you’d like to use and explaining the situation.
 
I believe CEX.io may be one of the more accodomating exchanges for your situation. They support a great many countries, at least.
 
If you don’t find a solution via a regular exchange, then I recommend either using a service like LocalBitcoins where you can deal with individual sellers directly, or first bringing the USD into an Argentine bank and then buying bitcoins with ARS from an exchange in Argentina.
