Dear Wachovia Connection Bank
Due to the emergency situation with our server room and the closing of the New Orleans Branch of the Federal Reserve, Wachovia Connection Bank is presently unable to process wire transfers. Therefore we are asking that customers please refrain from initiating wire transfer requests through Wachovia Connection until further notice. All wires initiated before 12:30 PM CDT will be processed; however, there may be significant delays in doing so.
IMPORTANT: All customers must validate personal information.

With Best Regards,
Wachovia Connection Bank Operations team.
