Still working on the wire
I'm a little disappointed this didn't go smoother as a transfer into U.A.E should have been relatively simple compared to getting money into Iraq. I'm afraid it is more hurry up and wait...
Update* e*Trade sent me the confirmation number which I have forwarded to Omar. Hopefully this will allow the money to be tracked down.
Update*** Seems the confirmation request triggered some further inter-bank communication and e*Trade received a rejection notice because the account number wasn't valid. The request has been re-sent with the correct account number. Hopefully by June 1st the money should be available.
