    I had very bad experience with this company. I was been fraud and cheated by illegally moving more than $100,000 from my Account to Transferwise and Transferwise moving to somewhere. Irony is that when money was been transferred to Transferwise, name was different and still they accepted the money. This could be serious Money Laundering or Criminal case and yet they are not willing to support and give us the information on where this money went. Atleast we should know who was the party who moved and where this money was moved so we can involve Police. They asked us to have US Police reach out to them. US Police and Detective have tried reaching Transferwise but no response. They want to run their Business model but they don’t want to support someone who lost $100,000. Transferwise keep loopholes that any criminal can take advantage of this loophole. Just be careful using Transferwise and giving your routing # and Account #. If anything happens, you will not get response. I am very skeptical about Transferwise and company like this can encourage cyber crime and money Laundering.

      If you make such an easy to do mistake as you enter your receiving bank account even just one digit wrong, your money will be gone! I was looking for a quick way to transfer a considerable amount of money (9000€ is considerable to me) from my bank account in Sweden to my bank account in Vietnam. Decided, most unfortunately, to try TransferWise. I was tired and in bad light I entered one digit wrong in my bank account. When I discovered it later I was sure the money would just bounce back. But no. Apparently TransferWise doesn’t make such a simple check as matching the customer name and bank account. So all I got from them is that they said the receiving bank accepted the money and the account holder has withdrawn the money. Somebody got lucky. No responsibility from TransferWise. I believe a financial operator shouldn’t be allowed to be on the market if they don’t provide such a basic security to their customers! Extremely bad!

        TransferWise is an inexpensive online wire service, but it comes with a bag of administrative regulations that make sending money from from point A to point B unnecessary complicated. Strongly suggested to use a different wiring service even if it’s a little bit more expensive. Sometimes the cheapest is not the best option. Not recommended.
