Okay, so I am selling a smartphone, to the guy who lives in UK, or that is what he says. So for the money transfer he asks me these things.


Bank Name

Account Number


Swift Code.

Is it okay to give them to him, BTW I live in the Latvia, and he already knows my email, whats connected to my bank account and he may know my mobile phone number, whats also connected.

  • Why not call your bank? – Rubber Duck Feb 11 '14 at 18:16

All these fields are needed to transfer Euros internationally.

Both the UK and Latvia are part of SEPA; WP says:

SEPA clearance is based on the IBAN bank-account identification and the SWIFT-BIC bank identifier.

The bank name and account number can be derived from the IBAN; they are not strictly needed, but it does not hurt to give them.
