Re: GIMP donation

Hi Rosanna,

Thanks for that -- I'll chase it up with our own bank, and when we've confirmed that the money has been returned to us, we'll use a different method to donate to GIMP.

Hi Mike,

When our account was closed with Citizens Bank, our ties with the bank
were severed.  As we neither own the account nor sent the funds, it is
unlikely either bank will be willing to give us information about your
wire transfer.  If you contact your bank you should be able to
initiate a trace on the wire and see where it went.  I am unfamiliar
with Northern Trust but a trace would tell you if they were affiliated
with your transfer.

Those instructions are wrong, I have contacted someone at GIMP

Thanks. Can you find out if the money was accepted? We've never
heard of
Northern Trust either, but if if now owns the Citizens Bank
account listed
for the GNOME Foundation on GIMP's donation page, that may
explain why £300
has come back to us...

We'll do our best to find out as quickly as possible, although the
process tends to be very slow from what I have seen previously.
account is actually long since closed so in the best case the money
that you received was those funds being returned. In the worst case
the account has been reopened and we need to extract the funds from
it, which would take about a month or so.
