While the rise of wire transfer and ACH (automated clearing houses) fraud is not news, the pure acceleration rate, scale and sophistication of corporate wire and ACH fraud is alarming.

Bank of America’s SWIFT code BOFAUS3N should be used for incoming wires in U.S. dollars. Bank of America’s SWIFT code BOFAUS6S should be used for incoming wires in foreign currency. If you do not know or are unsure of the type of currency being received please use BOFAUS3N. Someone sending an incoming international wire to you may also ask for Bank of America’s address.
How does an International Wire Transfer (SWIFT) work? Most international transfers are executed through SWIFT, a co-operative society, founded in 1974 by seven international banks, which operate a global network to facilitate the transfer of financial messages. Using these messages, banks can exchange data for funds transfer between financial institutions. For more information, refer SWIFT.
International money transfers are basically inter-bank transfers, only in this case, the two banks happen to be in different countries, which makes things slightly more complex. The principle of correspondent banking still applies, which means that the two banks need to have an established relationship in order to facilitate the transfer.
Call or visit your bank to check on the wire transfer if the recipient has not received it by the expected date. Speak to a representative responsible for wire transfers. Ask the representative to place a tracer on the wire. The tracer shows the processing path the transfer has taken with corresponding banks, as well as the current location. Give the representative the Federal Reference Number.
