I can also confirm a US to Lithuanian IBAN wire transfer is problematic. I tried it a week ago and on day 2 I got an email from the sender (from his bank) asking for a wire amendment with the note that an intermediary bank is needed and that my funds are held in the beneficiary bank and any recall must be initiated there! (that is Revolut). This is very odd considering that for the funds to held in Revolut it would mean the wire reached Revolut then if that was true I don’t see the point of asking for an intermediary bank. It is a contradiction.
After days going back and forth I managed to get the info that REVOGB2L should be sent to the sender along with a suggestion for them to update their SSI. I did exactly that. Now the sender says I should ask Revolut to check for the “amended” wire and “accept” it for it to go through!!! So far Revolut sees no transfer.
I am not in a position to know who is responsible but I was under the impression that such “communication” is conducted between banks via SWIFT and not by asking customer to be the intermediary who “translates” banking language and give instructions to the banks.
I consider my transfer lost. Lesson learned, no US transfers to LT IBANs until further notice. I was suspecting something is wrong since before the transfer, the sender attempted to send the funds using a payment link with his US-issued MasterCard. Well, it failed and I chose to ignore it as an isolated issue.
