Bank transfer to old account

(Gordon Bidwell) #1

Not realising that my account and sort numbers changed when reissued with new card I have transferred £100 to my old beta card details. How can I get the money returned.

this was for transfer to prepaid card having got new CA - always best to confirm with in app chat with the details and they will sort it out for you Im sure :slight_smile:


Contact customer service

Luckily, the prepaid program is still active, so hopefully Monzo will credit your account next week. As others have said, let in-app support know just to be sure.


I believe Monzo manually match bank transfers to the Monzo prepaid cards. They should be able to locate it easily with your old card reference number.

I’m suprised that it doesn’t automatically credit your current account tbh

The Barclays account funds are transferred to for the prepaid card is operated by Wirecard, I believe, so Monzo wouldn’t be able to use an API integration to automatically credit user accounts.

Did you have any success with this? I made this mistake last Tuesday with £300 - my monthly budget! Halifax have contacted Barclays and are still awaiting a reply and are now telling me I could be waiting until 21st July after being initially told 20 days! I’m pulling my hair out and trying any avenue to speed the process up!
