I've already sent private messages to some people on the forum for help, but I would like to hear from everybody.
(Im 16)

So I got persuaded onto giving my bank account to my "friends" to do fraud. At the end of the day I didn't get anything from it.
The bank account got closed and the bank(Barclays) will not act as my banker anymore.
I fully regret being naiive, but now that it's gone, what can I do?
Will I be able to open an account with another bank?
Will the closure of my account effect my family's accounts?
If anything send a pm for further information.

I really got Oofed lmao im such a dumbass ;c

You probably have a CIFAS marker now. You were complicit in fraud.

Good luck getting anything other than a basic bank account, and I doubt you'll even get a student overdraft anymore should you wish to go to university.

The "subject access request" is a request to CIFAS to provide you with the information they hold about you.

The easiest way appears to be for you to click on the link on that page to get the "downloadable Data Subject Access Request form".

Print out that form, fill it in, and send it to CIFAS with appropriate documents to prove your identity.

Don't be so harsh. He's only 16 years old. Many 16 year olds do dumb things especially for the prospect of easy money and are not aware that their bank account will get closed or of fraud markers or not being able to get a mortgage etc. Some of those who coerce the younger and vulnerable into it just say it's a simple harmless "bank transfer", these are fraudsters for a living who know how to trick people.

OP you can still go to university and you can still get paid student finance, you will just have to use an online bank now like Monzo or Pockit. You will have your own sort code and account number so can still get your job wages and student finance paid into it. Student finance do not look at CIFAS markers you just need a sort code and account number.

As for a mortgage (a house) a CIFAS marker lasts for 6 years, so you will be 22 when it is removed and at that age you won't be applying for a mortgage. Very few people are in the financial positions to obtain a mortgage fresh out of uni.

You won't be able to have an overdraft though. Not sure about credit cards. You will have to be wise with your money using a debit card.

That doesn't give much credit to 16 year olds. Most 16 year olds aren't dumb enough to commit fraud, even if they're not aware of the consequences later in life. It makes me wonder if the thread is a troll, because kids aren't this dumb.

Also worth noting, the OP says they were persuaded by their friends. Not professional fraudsters.

It kind of says something if young people are considered vulnerable (effectively uneducated) enough that being tricked into giving up their bank accounts is considered normal. It's not particularly complex to follow the "Never give someone else access to your bank account" rule. But most people, even kids, know this so I struggle to take this thread seriously. Not that the OP has been online in 3 weeks anyway

Way to generalise. If the OP knew that it was fraud and that he would be stealing other people's hard earned money then he deserves the repercussions and I don't feel sorry for him. However looking at these many money muling stories it appears that most of them simply think that it's a harmless bank transfer and are not aware that it's fraud. Either way they've learned their lesson now.

Even if it were just a harmless bank transfer, I'm confused as to why anyone would willingly get involved with something that's obviously not normal.

Hi, I'm the so-called OP, yes, I am 16 years old and old enough to know what is wrong and what is right, but the ones that tricked me were friends of mine, people that I considered as friends, who I trusted.
I know I did wrong, and I wish I could just go back in time, I regret all of this, and in 2 years im gonna go to uni(hopefully) and idk how im gonna do that without a bank account, I haven't tried opening a basic account with other banks for personal reasons, but once I try I will really seek for help, I still get e-mails when people reply to my thread, but there hasn't been a reply in 3 weeks

Thank you anyways, if there's something I still need to know, please tell me
