I think I have a Cifas Marker on my name , can I still open any banks ?

A friend I worked with sent me money to withdraw for him because he was having problems with his bank and he urgently needed the money and somehow after sending it both my bank accounts with NatWest and Halifax ended up closing , I applied for Nationwide but they declined my application so I’m assuming I must have a marker on my name , will any other banks accept me

Assuming you do have a fraud marker, probably not. Check with then directly with a subject access request.

From the way you are talking I have to assume you knew there was something dodgy about this and there's no grounds to appeal it with your old bank.

Don't assume, check. Apply to CIFAS for a Data Subject Access Request. However, how could your friend transfer money, but not withdraw it? Did it come from their account? Its not the amount, but the process that sounds dodgy; if you have problems with your bank, you sort it with your bank and don't try to circumvent it.

You most likely won't be able to get a bank account with any organisation that's signed up to CIFAS.

Try cardmoneyone. The say they accept anyone that passes an ID check. They are also not affiliated with CIFAS. Although it is £12.50 a month
