Update on money transfer to Ays

My e*Trade customer service representative has informed me the money has not left my account after all. There is a problem with how the wire transaction was handled and he is working to resolve the issue. He said he has a verbal confirmation that the money will go out tomorrow. Obviously I will follow up with a phone call to confirm.

Assuming e*Trade gets their shit together, the money will go to the Bank of New York and then on to Jordan. Since the Jordanian bank will be closed Thursday and Friday and the New York bank is closed Saturday and Sunday, worse case is the money will not get to Jordan until Monday (Jan-26). Ays says it can take as long as a week for the money to get from Jordan to Baghdad so it looks like Feb-2 is the new estimated disbursement date.

If anyone else has questions or concerns, please leave them in the comment section and I'll try to answer them as promptly as possible.
