It's only like that in the comics.
In the real world, all accounts at all banks are listed on their IT systems, and several ppl have access to that information.

Most of who can figure out how to copy that data on to a CD ROM.
Numbered accounts are listed in the computer , however the owner is a number not a name. It's a bank within a bank, if you turn up with your account no at the holding branch you will even be turned away as it does not mean anything to the clerk on the desk. You will usually have to go upstairs & behind closed doors for assistance.
