How can I check a bank sort code?

You can confirm the details of a bank sort code using the Sort Code Checker Tool available online from the Cheque & Credit Clearing Company. This allows you to verify which bank you’re sending money to. If the sort code doesn’t match the bank you were expecting, you’re at high risk of falling victim to a scam.

Criminals convincingly impersonate the bank and ask you to transfer money for “security” reasons. If this happens, you can be confident it’s a scam and even if this is being sent to one of our accounts, or another well-known bank, it is still difficult to recover the funds and you may lose your money. Don’t make the payment and end contact with that individual.
