    • If you provided an invalid email address, but did provide a valid mobile phone number, you will not be notified by email that the transfer was undeliverable.
    • If you have provided an invalid mobile phone number and chose to notify your recipient by mobile phone only, you will not be notified in any way that the SMS text message did not go through.

    • Edit your recipient information to include the valid email address.
    • Select the “Resend Notification” from the “Pending Transfer” screen
    • Click “Confirm”
