      a)       Query – used to request information/clarification related to a previous transaction.

      b)       Recall – used to request the cancellation of a wire payment transaction.

Note: Wire payment instructions will only be recalled on a ‘best efforts’ basis.  The receiving bank may already have acted upon the instructions.
