Confirmation of Payee is an account name checking service to help you make sure payments are sent to the right account. This reduces the chances of you making a mistake and helps to protect you from fraud. This service is in place with other banks too.

When you set up or edit a payee, we’ll run a check on the name on the account you are paying. This helps to stop payments going to the wrong account by making sure the name on the account matches.

These checks are also designed to alert you to possible scams where a fraudster may pretend to be someone they’re not. Where the name on the account doesn’t match what you would expect, this may be a sign you’re being scammed.

Also, if someone tries to pay you, they’ll be able to check the details they have for you match up (if their bank offers the service).

For more information, please visit our Confirmation of Payee page.

We’re always looking out for you and your money. We’ve got information on a wide range of different scams, so letting us know a reason for your payment helps us narrow down the information you need to protect yourself, if we think there could be a risk.

It’s good to get into the habit of double checking your payments. If you receive a warning before making a payment, be extra careful to stop and make sure you’re happy it’s not a scam.

No, authentication will only be requested when you tap Make a payment after entering the amount and the payment reason. This is the point at when the verification takes place.

No, the result of the assessment will indicate if authentication is required. Therefore you may not be asked to authenticate. If you do need to authenticate as long as you save a payee to your list you will not need to authenticate again unless a change is made to the payee details (name, sort code, account number, reference).

There is no set limit, the limit is dynamic and is based upon our internal fraud/risk rules. However once you save a payee to your list and authenticate you will not need to authenticate again unless a change is made to the payee's details (name, sort code, account number, reference).

Remember, there’s no minimum or maximum balance for a pot and all your pots contribute towards your M Plus Saver balance.

This usually means that you’ve transferred money out of your M Plus Saver (or an automated sweep has transferred money to top up your current account balance). Your M Plus Saver balance includes all your pots and any money you’ve not yet allocated to a pot. So if there wasn’t enough balance Not in a pot, we need to know which pot(s) you’d like this to come from. Simply follow the instructions on screen to reduce the number or value of your pots, or top up your savings with a transfer from your current account, and everything will add up again!

Open Banking

Open Banking is a safe, secure way for you to view all your financial products, services and accounts in one place, on a single regulated app or website.

It’s useful because:

  • It enables you to move and manage your money easily – with all your accounts in one place.
  • It gives you access to tailored deals on financial products and services – which are based on your account information.
  • It puts you in control of your data – only you can share your account information with other banks and service providers.

If you’ve got accounts with different banks or financial institutions, and you want to pull them together into one place, you can do it using Open Banking.

As well as allowing you to view all your accounts together, an Open Banking app or website lets you make secure online payments straight from your current account.

In addition, they might use your account information to track down better deals for you on things like gas, electricity, and broadband.

Anyone who manages their current account, credit card or easy-access savings account online can use Open Banking. As a Virgin Money customer, before you can use Open Banking, you need to sign up for our online banking or mobile app first.

When you use open Banking, you control your data. If an Open Banking app or website asks to access your account information or to make a payment for you, they can only do it once you’ve given them your consent – and you can withdraw that consent at any time.

Anyone who uses Open Banking to access your data must be regulated by the FCA in the UK, or by the national authority in other European countries. Plus, they have to comply with data protection and information security laws.

Scammers could ask you to pay money into a safe account, or tell you what to say. Virgin Money will never do this.

If you’re paying someone who contacted you on social media, be sure that you’re paying who you think you are. Think about how well you know the person you’re paying.

There’s more information about online scams on our website.
