The account holder CAN be identified however his NAME will not connect to the account with a reverse look up. These are 2 very different things.

I do know a case where a bank gave money out of the wrong account, the cashier did not understand the account no & asked for a passport. Reverse name look up gave her somebody in Paris. She gave out 10K, the guy noticed the error & returned, the cashier said this is not possible,, several phone calls later matter resolved!
Ok, I give you that the name will not show a link to the account at an average teller's desk, if that's what you mean. The manager can make the link, but most staff not.
