I just don't like the way you bash Adorama, as it's clearly not their fault. You would do much better to grime about the US banking system which lags 10+ years behind compared to rest of the world.The bank just received the transfer. Like I said many times, I have called my bank many times checking for the return. It finally came back. I just hope that no one else has to go through this whether Adorama addresses the issues with responding to customers about high value wire transactions or through people shopping elsewhere. It was the sales associates advice that led me to do the transfer and if they are recommending this as a way of doing business they should have some ways of dealing with this issue effectively. Not responding to people who are legitimately worried about large sums of money is not a good business practice.
Repeated calling Adorama is not going to get you the money back. Calling your bank will help much more.
I'm glad you finally got your money back. I'd still like to know the name of that bank so I don't open an account there. Sounds like a very unpleasant experience you had, but I think the delay was due to your bank's practices. It was unfortunate that miscommunication/screwups messed up your transaction. Many scams are run using bank transfers since if you accept a scam transfer, the bank loses nothing and your lose it all!

According to the OP's bank, the money will appear back in his account tomorrow. A check for $25 is on the way to him, from Adorama, to cover his wire costs.
So Helen said on June 9 (a Sunday) that your bank told her you would get your money in your account on June 10. So it was one day later (today) on June 11.
