The ExpressSend service allows Wells Fargo customers to send money to family members and friends in China with a US Dollar account at ABC. ABC has more than 10,300 branches and 17,500 ATMs throughout China.
Customers can send money by calling Wells Fargo Chinese Phone Bank at 1-800-288-2288 or by visiting a Wells Fargo banking store. Wells Fargo has the capability to serve customers in English, Mandarin and Cantonese Chinese.
