Types of Bank Wire Transfers
Bank wire transfers use an interbank electronic communications system to send funds between accounts across state and national borders. Because of the system used, bank wire transfers are a convenient and safe way to transfer funds.
There are two main types of bank wire transfers. These include:
- Domestic Bank Wire Transfers: These types of transfers frequently process in a business day or less. This is an effective way to send money in amounts ranging from very small to large between accounts as long as you have the appropriate checking account and routing numbers.
- International Bank Wire Transfers: Sending money internationally can be a bit more complicated and expensive than domestic bank wire transfers. You can order international bank wire transfers to a foreign bank.
For situations in which it’s too complicated or time consuming to mail a check, bank wire transfers can get your money to where you need it to go quickly and inexpensively.
Staying Secure With Bank Wire Transfers
While bank wire transfers are a secure way to transfer money, there are some things you should know to protect yourself. For example, it is important only to send bank wire transfers to individuals or businesses that you are familiar with. It can be challenging to recover funds lost due to fraud from improper bank wire transfers.
Be sure that you verify that the person who requested the wire transfer is really the person that you think they are – some con artists and scammers have been known to impersonate friends and family members by stealing e-mail or telephone credentials. Verify that you know the person in question before initiating a wire transfer, especially internationally.
