What happens if you transfer money to the wrong bank.
The same goes for a transfer made from a Euro denominated account in the UK to a Euro denominated account in France. Therefore, a UK bank is not entitled to charge a higher fee for a transfer of Euros from the UK to France: the charge must be the same as if it were making a transfer from a British account to another British account.
BACS stands for Bankers Automated Clearing Services and is a simple process of making payments via electronic transactions. It is internationally recognised as a safe way of transferring money between bank accounts. It can take three to five working days for a BACS payment to clear. Many people use Direct Debit to pay their monthly household bills; this is done using the BACS system.
Payments to another person, business or account with another bank. If you are making a payment after 6.30pm, on a weekend, or a Bank holiday, the payment will normally leave you account immediately and be available in the recipient bank account within a few hours. The date displayed when making the payment and on your statement will be the next.
BACS Direct Credits are used to pay suppliers, payroll and other listed payments. BACS Direct Debits are used to collect money from a payee. Autopay Online and Autopay Online Plus cater for your BACS payment needs, allowing you to make and manage payments, and access BACS reports, all via the Autopay Online platforms.

The beneficiary bank will receive this credit to their account on the same day that you are debited. Weekends and bank holidays do not form part of the cycle. BACS Payments allow you to make more than one payment to.
What to do if you're a victim of a bank transfer scam. Your first port of call is to complain to your bank. You should also then report the scam to Action Fraud (you can call it on 0300 123 2040). If your bank won't help, or you haven't heard back within eight weeks, you can then go to the ombudsman. It can help sooner if your bank has sent you.
