HSBC / bank transfer error!

1 United Arab Emirates Review updated:

I made a bank Transfer over the internet for 20,000 AED into a foreign account. The bank called me to clarify what funds the transfer would be made in and I confirmed that it would be for 20,000 AED. The bank then transferred 103,000 AED. This is my rent money and I will not be able to pay my rent because the bank are saying it will take up to 14 days to sort this problem out. I do not have 14 days to wait as I need to pay my rent on the 1st of August and I am marrying on the 30th August.
