Incorrect Account Number

Posted by PhoebeC PhoebeC
Message 1 of 2 844 Views

I recently gave someone my account number, and after they had transferred I realised I accidentally added an extra number. I know that BankWest Account numbers are only 7 digits, not 8 digits. Therefore I was wondering if this payment will bounce or if I need to get the other person to contact their bank.

Hey @PhoebeC, it's likely the transfer will bounce back to the senders account. If this doesn't happen within 3-5 business days, the sender will need to contact their bank to process a trace on the transfer.
