    I had a wire transfer to a closed Wells Fargo bank account. What will happen to the funds?

    • Staff
      JonathanJune 25, 2017Staff

      Hi Bita!

      Usually, the fund transfer will either not go through at all, or will put the funds on floating status. If it didn’t go through, usually it goes back to the sender’s source account, then you advice the person to send it this time to an active account. If it goes to a floating status, you need to contact Wells about an arrangement to release the funds.

      Hope this helps.
