If the designated recipient of the funds will be receiving the funds at a location physically outside of any State, the wire will need to be sent as an international wire and all additional international wiring information will be needed.

Once “wired” funds leave your financial institution they are typically immediately available to the Recipient, not retrievable, and usually immediately withdrawn. These wire features (guaranteed and non-retrievable funds) have led members to be victimized by fraudsters. The fraudsters pretend to be legitimate Recipients and instruct Senders to use the wire transfer service to send funds for a purchase or other purpose. The fraudsters then provide phony or unintended recipient or account information. Members can also be exposed to risk when the funds wired from their account have not been collected, as from a recent deposit.
