Bwin won't know who is the true bank account holder. They have the details that you send to them (IBAN: xxx, Account Holder; Lionel Messi). The problem is that IBAN: xxx belongs to Cristiano Ronaldo (you). So, it's completely up to the bank clerc to find out with a routine check that the account doesn't belong to Messi but to another person. If he is not lazy, he will find out and send the money back to bwin. If he is lazy, you will have the money credited to your account! I've tried once myself with another bookie but my bank didn't accept the invoice and send it back. But I also know cases of friends that did it without any problems.HL333982 wrote: I've had one of "my" Bwin-accounts closed and fear they'll ask me to withdraw the funds to my bankaccount even though deposit was made by e-wallet. However, the ID belongs to someone not very close to me and that I don't really trust.
My question is; if I give them my own bankaccount details there is no way for them to find out who that specific bankaccount belongs to?I haven't ever used that bankaccount for deposits or withdrawals with Bwin before.
My suggestion: If it's a low amount, go for it. If it's a larger amount, try to cut some kind of a deal with your friend and open a joint bank account.
