Hi :slight_smile: if i send someone my account number and sort code to transfer me money, will they have acces to information like my name and email address??

Thanks in advance :blush:

A name is standard with most banks; you could give a nickname or your name as you prefer it; ie. Thom instead of Thomas and no; your email, phone number etc… are not given or needed.

Nope no additional details than your sort code and account number…

You could ask them to pay you by http://monzo.me if you’d prefer, instead of giving out your details

No, they won’t be able to see any additional information.
Banks don’t check the receiver’s name when performing transfers, so you could just give the first letter of your first name and your full last name, for example, or the other way around.
