Quick Answer: Can I Stop A Bank Transfer?

Can you stop an electronic funds transfer?

Normally, you cannot stop an EFT payment after you initiate it. The EFTA does not give you the right to do so.

However, you might be able to stop scheduled, recurring EFT payments (e.g., scheduled utility EFTs).

Try to inform the bank and bank manager immediately after the wrong transaction. Money will get back to your account automatically, if the account number you mentioned does not exists but in case the situation is opposite, you have to take immediate action.

24–48 hours in normal circumstances. But waiting for 3–4 working days too is not bad. If still the money doesn’t comes in, simply raise the issue with the bank, as it was a failed transaction.
