Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
A) Yes - they just recognise the SWIFT number. It is up to you to check to make sure the name matches the account holder.
There are millions of transactions worldwide and it would be impossible to check this - which is why there is a swift number.
B) In reality no - there is little chance because this is a scam and they take the money straight out. Its not the Bank's fault you were given a fraudulent detail, therefore they are not liable.
However you could seek a Court order asking the bank to disclose the name and address of the account holder.I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
That is the FINCopy Service Identifier Code. That does not apply sadly.
But as I said, you can get a Court order to the RBS to disclose who the account holder was. That way you can get the details and go after them.
But the Police should be able to see where the money went and who the account holder is.
Under money laundering regulations in the UK you must have valid ID to open an account.
