As Bio pointed out that is a fraud in itself.
They would also struggl;e to provide the evidence to establish who they are.
Yeah the banks would

You underestimate how much they will care about someone using a false ID to commit fraud. Your ideas here are illegal and you should not try recommending them.
But cifas last for 6 years that’s a really long time

Better 6 years with a mark than any time in prison.

I think I might have a cifa fraud marker on my name as my old Barclays account closed 3 years ago due to suspected fraud. Now I’m 18 and I need an account for student loan I have applied for NatWest and HSBC and have been declined and when I called Barclays to see what was going on they said my account is closed and they can’t see anything and I’ll have to call Experian and get a credit report which I have currently done and still awaiting reply. Any advice tips in case I can’t open an account
Please tell me how it goes and if they accept your prepaid card

Or just keep making complaints to the bank
The bank don't care, they've already severed the relationship by closing accounts, reaching a standard of criminal proof and placing the marker. Under what circumstances exactly would they contact CIFAS and say 'nah it's ok, just leave it'? As several other users who work/ed in finance and credit control have pointed out, you really don't seem to know how this works and shouldn't come here giving advice (And I'm sure I've said so before)

Imagine you caught someone robbing a bank, you've clearly seen their face, got a photo of them in the act and their getaway car, and you walk into the police station and tell them all and give the photos. Then you come back the next week and say 'Actually that didn't happen, we didn't see that person seen robbing the bank in that photo we took and gave you' ... You surely see something a bit off with that line of reasoning that would draw further comment?

Oh yeah true your right 6 years is harsh I guess you know, at least the bank didn’t get the police involved

Imma be honest. Us ppl who fell into the trap probs wont get student maintenance loans. We can still go uni bcuz tuition fees, we do not need to use a card for that but if you wanna live outwards then its sticky. Best u can do is stay in ur city, e.g. if u live in London, go to unis in london only. Some prepaid cards might be obtainable but just like monzo, if they join cifas, they can get locked off.

Everything happens for a reason... if you're going uni and cant get maintenance loans, that just cuts down your debt after when you start your actual life. Maybe its a valid barrier to make u save up? The universe plays a big role. But best wishes to you and everyone else (inc. Me)

There isn't really any such thing. They all have the ability to make their own decisions and they don't tend to advertise 'We accept fraud!"

Even many of the prepaid/online card places that turned a blind eye like Monzo, Monese, Revolut ect are signing up day by day.

If you've just been caught and banned from the financial system, it's maybe a good idea not to drag the rest of your families accounts with you.
