    My first bank account was closed because of an overdraft which was not caused by me.
    Second was a fraud payment into my account which I was not aware of.
    Baring mind i’m only 16.
    What does this mean like? Any chance opening a new account.
    Does this go on my Credit Score.
    What are the downs of this please.
    Thank You

    First bit is too ambiguous.
    Second bit sounds like you have a CIFAS marker.
    Sounds like you allowed someone access to your account.
    You either prove to the bank it was nothing to do with you and they may remove the marker or they believe you were partly to blame.
    The marker stays for 6 years. You will find it hard to open a bank account of any sort. There are a few bank accounts where you pay a monthly fee that may take you.

    No high street bank or bs will touch you with a CIFAS marker.
    It is serious.

    Contact the bank. They will tell you. Find out why it was shut down.

    In most cases I have seen on here that people let a friend use the account . You can contact CIFAS or CAB.

    Call the bank again and ask why it was closed.

    You can then ring either CAB and they may refer you to a credit reference agency or CIFAS.

    To find out from CIFAS about what info they hold then you have to make a subject access request. Details are on the website. Its basically a request for information and costs £10. details are on the site.
