How wires are used

Fraud security: Blocking international wires

If your business initiates wires inside the U.S. only, you can prevent account takeovers from fraudulently originating wires and sending your funds to beneficiary banks outside the United States. Our International Wire Block automatically rejects all international wire transfers on your account regardless of the source (online, telephone, or via the financial center). All attempts are blocked and reported to you. There’s nothing more you have to do.
