I finally got my account open and went to my bank (chase) to send the wire to fund it and my bank says that the info I have is too vague.

When they go to fill out the form, the swift code is not recognized and it goes down hill from there.

what info do I use for Beneficiary bank and intermediary bank?? What is the FED Wire number for?

This is what Warka sent me:

I know what you're going through as I had some of the same problems funding my account. Let's see if we can get this done and 'school' your bank (as I had to mine).

I had my bank make a copy of my wire transfer so it would be easier the next time I went to fund my account.

First off, I didn't have to use the SWIFT code. I believe the 'Fed Wire' or Receiving Routing/ABA Number (on my form) replaces the SWIFT.

The Beneficiary bank is Al-Warka.

Now, the weird thing that I did on my wire; at the top of my form it asks for the Receiving Bank Name, (or in your case intermediary bank) to which I put CITI BANK N.A. They are receiving the funds but not being credit to them, if that makes sense.

If it asks for an address I had to look them up and this is the address that I used:

111 Wall St. New York, NY. 10005-3509

Further down on my form it asks for


CREDIT TO: to which I addressed

Warka Bank For Investment & Finance-Main Branch

Hay Alwihda-Sec. 902-14 Street Bldg 50

Baghdad, Iraq (no zip/country code)

Hope this helps, any more questions just let me know.

BTW, good work on the "pictures" in the other forum. :twothumbs:
