Good afternoon. I am in London. I processed my BVN on Fleet Street OIS processing centre. I have lost my BVN . I no longer have receipt to show proof of payment for the BVN. It was processed about 7 years ago so I no longer have bank details showing proof of payment. How do i trace/locate the missing BVN. The BVN was sent to me via text on my old mobile which I no longer use so I am at a loss and dont know what to do to locate the missing BVN. Can I go back to Fleet street OIS processing centre to try and see if they can help me trace the missing BVN? Do I need to make an appointment for the fleet street centre? Their telephone number is faulty: 020 7832 0001. Is there an email address for them or another telephone number?

I cloud not find any relevant information about Fleet Street or IOS processing center in relation to BVN retrieval or tracing. However, as previously mentioned, OIS Services is one of the agencies authorized to enroll individuals for BVN and provide related services [1]. If you need to retrieve or update your BVN, you can contact OIS Services or visit their website to locate an enrollment center near you.

If you have entered your BVN and received a message that it cannot be verified, it may mean that there is an issue with the BVN database or your BVN information. It’s recommended to contact your bank’s customer service center or visit your bank branch to resolve the issue and ensure that your BVN information is up-to-date and accurate [3]. It’s important to keep your BVN safe and secure to avoid unauthorized access to your bank accounts and financial information.

However, there might be instances where you lose or misplace your BVN. In this article, we will look at various steps you can follow to retrieve your BVN and ensure uninterrupted access to your banking services. 1. Contact Your Bank: The first step in retrieving your BVN is to reach out to your bank. You can visit the customer service desk or call their helpline, specifying your need to retrieve your BVN. Provide them with all the necessary identification details like your full name, date of birth, and account number. The customer service representative will guide you through the next steps. 2.

Provide Required Documentation: In order to retrieve your BVN, you will need to provide certain documents that verify your identity and ownership of the bank account.

Ensure you provide accurate personal details and double-check for any errors before submitting. This form will be used to update your BVN details and facilitate the retrieval process. 5. Pay Necessary Fees (if applicable): Some banks may charge a nominal fee for BVN retrieval services. Make sure to inquire about any applicable charges during your interaction with the bank. Ensure you settle any fees required to avoid any delays in the retrieval process. 6. Await Notification: After submitting your BVN retrieval application, the bank will process your request and verify your details.
