  • Potential CIFAS marker

    Hi I’m not sure where to start and also seen it on the consumer forum, long story short. My account with my bank Santander is currently blocked. This is due to me receiving a transaction for £4,000, long story short I’ve been transferring money for a friend of mine into his accounts for a few months now. Deep down I’ve known it’s been wrong but I’ve not done anything to stop it. I’ve not profited from it at all however I am now very worried about my account closing down and getting a potential CIFAS marker. The bank is asking me for the proof of transaction, I don’t know what to do. Do I report my friend to the bank/police?

    I am just really worried as I’ve never been in trouble before at all, I am in the process of trying to save up for a house and other things. I’ve got no idea what to do, and any sort of guidance or advice would be great- I know I’ve made a huge mistake but I thought I could trust this person having known them for many many years and I’m also worried for my safety potentially going forwards so just wondering what it is can do.

    At the minute this is in the early stages so I’ve not got any letters or anything from the bank but I assume they are investigating my account whilst all this is ongoing
