    Someone is transferring to me and asked for my details and i gave my my sort code and account number and obviously my name, which i know is safe ( apart from the slim chance of the jeremy clarkston case) but the person has now asked for my date of birth? Do some banks require you to provide you date of birth to transfer money to someone ? Why would they need my date of birth? is it safe for me to give my date of birth over to them ?

    I've never heard of this being needed to transfer money and have sent/received money to/from numerous banks.

    Sounds fishy but it could be security purposes if it's a business and not an individual

    I've never needed the date of birth of the person whose account I'm paying money into.
