Does bank details include name and numbers ? If you know their name and what city google it and it should come up on 192.com
You can't. If you don't know their name, the only option is to go to the police....

police deals with criminal offence, owing money is a civil offence if there is proof. i can not think of a possible scenario where money owed is a criminal offence. money stolen, but not money owed.

In answer to your question OP, there is no way to find out the identity of the person, which is why payment for goods and services should not be done by bank transfer unless you trust that company or person. Data protection hides everyone unless it is a police matter.

bank transfer does not even use the name of payee given, it asks for this for reference but it does not use it to identify the payee, only their sort code and account number. they could actually give you a different name and still get the money credited to their bank account!

Let's just say that I was scammed (transferred) a large sum of money for a service.. police involved, traced bank account and its owner = money recovered. Anyways, enough said.
Wonder who's gonna get scammed next then. Thx for info.
