On the form, you need to give an answer for "Purpose of Wire". I did not think it was a big deal because I was witdrawing money from my account and requesting it to be deposited to my account overseas. My answer was " to make some purchases".

P.S: amount of the wire is around 13K
Update: Hello Libby,
I am already being honest.. They know it is my account. Both Sender and Receiver is my name..
