Help with IB wiring instructions

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by bundlemaker, Feb 19, 2002.

  1. I've been on hold to talk with someone for over 2 hours, tried e-mailing, and chat doesn't work. Can someone tell me how critical following IB's web-site wire instructions are. I don't know if I did it right or not. My bank can't seem to follow IB's instructions. Any comments?
  2. Print out the instructions and carry them to the bank. If they still cant do it, I'd get another bank.

    indeed, the wiring instructions are crystal clear to a bank. the ABA routing number, the account number and FCC reference (be sure to specify both your username / real name and IB account number.

    really I agree with easyrider, it can't get any clearer than that. if your bank can't do it, change bank.
  4. Thanks for the comments. I've got a big city bank, but go to my local rural branch. They acted like they were doing me a big favor ( and of course charged for the wire). Next time to the main office, thanks again.
