Reversing a Domestic Wire Transfer

Answered by: 

Question: 
I have been finding conflicting information regarding whether a domestic wire transfer can be reversed. Can it be reversed by the customer? What Federal Regulation would wire transfers be governed by?
Answer: 

After a payment order has been accepted, cancellation or amendment of the order is not effective unless the receiving bank agrees, or a funds-transfer system rule allows cancellation or amendment without agreement of the bank. You will find the legal basis for this in UCC-4a.
