Different account number than the recipient sees


#1

I just informed from my friend that my U.K. transfer to his bank shows my details wrong. And by that I mean the sort code and the account number doesn’t match the revolut’s GBP wallet. My name displayed well, as I own the mystery account with a reference also my name. Is it normal?

Could someone respond to this transfer and sent back money to me or the payment going to be reversed?

Anyone with the same issue?

I believe this is normal since Reovlut uses different service providers to offer certain services. For domestic UK transfers, I believe money is “sent in your name” but not from an account “you own”. This should not affect cases where money needs to be reverted to the sender, if a recipients account can’t be reached, for example.
