    Call your bank and ask them to put a 'stop payment' on the check.  This will cost you something (my bank charges $25 for this service).  Also, if the check has already been cashed, you may not be able to stop payment. 

    If you sent money through some other institution, contact them as soon as possible and ask them how to stop payment.  They will be able to help you.

    if it's a check/m.o. i'd ask my bank/credit union how i stop a pmt. i think i only had 2 stop pmt once. i'm not sure what it costs, it's been that long ago. i try & figure out ahead of time my finances ahead of time so i know what i'll have & what i won't
