How much time will take a money transfer from Germany to clear into my Abbey bank account?
I am waiting a money transfer from a customer in Germany to be cleared into my Abbey bank account. It's been 3 days now and still no money in my account. Did anyone knows how much time I must wait?
Question answered by
I have had money transferred into my Abbey account from a number of countries and of course the time period will depend on the service used for the transfer - for example whether that is BACS, CHAPS, wire transfer etc. However I generally receive funds within 24 hours and last year I received funds from Europe literally within a couple of hours so 3 days sounds very suspect to me and I would chase Abbey to see if they have any news on it. The only delay I have had was when someone tried using the wrong international routing number which you can get off the Abbey website to be certain you've given them the right details.
All the best,
How does direct deposit and money transfers work?
I have to pay someone in another city, and I'm looking at options for doing so. I figure direct deposit would work the best, how does it work though? Do I have to set something up at the bank?
What about money transfers?
Do you have to be over 18 to do either?

You can do a quit claim or quick claim at western union for less than the bank charges. Depending on how much you need to wire it could be $8.00 or $16.00. They are in some banks and at many Currency Exchanges.
How do I pay for an ebay item using money transfer?
I bought an item of Ebay Germany, and now I have to pay via "Überweisung" which means bank transfer or money transfer. I have the seller's bank information, but I don't know what to do with it, or how to pay! Please help, because I already bought the item!

I have received dozens of payments through international bank transfer for items I have sold on ebay to Europeans, but I have never sent one.
You have to go to your bank and ask how to do it... It will be expensive. Usually from the Euro Zone to the US its 25 Euros, but I don't know how much it would cost the other way around.
How long should an email money transfer take?
Someone sent me an email money transfer exactly 4 hours ago. Shouldn't I have received and email with instructions on how to retrieve it yet? I'm not sure if this matters, but we don't bank at the same institution. 2 different banking companies.
Question answered by CoreyBryant
If it was two different banks - it could take a couple of days to transfer the funds.
You might not receive instructions on how to retreive it, it might just go into your account. Did you look online to see if that happened?
You might call your bank also and see what the policy is. Usually, it can be as little as 2 - 24 hours. If it was an EFT (Electronic Fund Transfer), it might take seven days depending on where thir district ACH (Automated Clearing House) is and their guidelines.

Question answered by Buffy Staffordshire
There is no reason to be in a hurry to send your money to a scammer.
All anyone needs to send money is:
1) A first and last name to use on the form as the sender's name
2) A first and last name to use on the form as the receiver's name
All anyone needs to pick up the cash is:
1) The first and last name used on the form as the sender's name.
2) The first and last name used on the form as the receiver's name
3) The eight or ten digit money transfer control number (MTCN#)
4) The test question and answer
And, all too frequently, only one or 2 of above listed requirements are actually needed to pick up the cash and disappear.
That is it, no ID required.
If you are:
1) sending money as part of a work-at-home job
2) buying from a website
3) buying a pet or car/truck/trailer/motorhome/caravan
4) helping an online boy/girlfriend
5) paying taxes/fees on a lottery/draw/government grant
6) paying visa/bank/airline/travel fees
7) paying deposit/rent for an apartment/house
8) paying banker/barrister/lawyer/court fees
9) paying a transportation/courier/shipping company
10) receiving/forwarding money onto someone or some company
Then you are being scammed.
Just keep in mind that Western Union and moneygram are unsafe and unsecure ways to send money.
Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off the cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country the money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.
If you google "Western Union scam", "fraud moneygram scammer" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near-victims who lost money via Western Union and moneygram.
