Who owns a particular bank account?

Posted by Alfonts Alfonts
Message 1 of 2 1,300 Views



I'm having a dispute with a Removalist company. It's a long story, but the short of it is that they're denying that I paid them. I definitely made a transfer and still have the transfer details I used (and the payment went through), but they're claiming they're a different company with a very similar name.


Is there any way to confirm/find out who the owner of the account is that I transferred the money to? To be clear, the BSB I used was for the Commonwealth Bank. I'm a Bankwest customer though, and so would trust the advice of my own bank more than theirs.


Best regards,

Hi Alex, I'm sorry to hear of your situation and understand this is a stressful time. If you could jump into your online banking and hit the 'Ask us' button (if using our app), or the 'Message us now' button (when logged in using a PC/laptop), our Messaging Team can look into this further and possibly lodge a trace on the transfer. If successful, this will show the recipients name. I do want to let you know that there is a $12 fee for this.
