In a lot of the movies the bad guys seem to prefer wire transfers as their payment method of choice. In the recent movie Non-Stop, the terrorist provides a bank account number and demands a payment of $150 million US dollars.
I am a loss to see how this works. If someone transfers money to an account here in the UK the sender can always ask for a refund or return by filing a fraud claim; the person receiving the money cannot simply just cash and withdraw, especially if the transfer is a large amount of money.
So are there actual bank accounts where you can dump loads of money and no one can ask or question refunds?
