Re: Britain targets 6,000 HSBC accounts in Switzerland

I'm sorry, but that's simply not true. I don't know where you get your knowledge, whether you've worked in a bank or such, but I have first-hand knowledge that the account holders are identifiable. Read the link above, or do some of your own googling; account holders can be identified if necessary. The difference is really just the number of people who can do the identification.

Oh, and regarding the paper-only thing.... Even if there are some banks that don't digitize information, you do realize that forensics were done prior to computerized systems, right? It's harder work, perhaps, but quite possible.
