Hi there, I’m sorry to hear about your current situation! If a payment made from a BNZ account was made incorrectly we can carry out a Credit Recovery. This is not a process that guarantees we can retrieve the funds and it is at a cost. A Credit Recovery can take up to 5 working days to process. I suggest following up with the Payee as we would provide them with an outcome. Hope this helps! - Adina.
