    As I mentioned in the Crap thread, an account for the widow will be opened by the organization of the WOA. They have so far spent €5,000.- . As soon as IBAN/BIC are known, I'll send the info on this thread, as there is probably no English translation available on the site.

    Adding info. In some countries the name and city is required.

    These are the following data, concerning this account.
    The account is owned by "Amtskasse Schenefeld"
    City: Schenefeld
    Countrycode: DE (Germany)
    When typing the BIC, the bank's name should be "Landsparkasse Schenefeld". If not, you have to do that yourself.

    Myabe it's because I'm from Sweden, or just that I haven't had anything to do with this before, how do you use IBAN and/or BIC?

    Is it an international thing you can work though your bank?


    I heard about the death from Britta already on Sunday and I thought about the possibility to donate a bit of money.
    I'm glad someone took it beoynd just thought and would like to help in any small way possible.

    The IBAN/BIC combination allows you to make international bank tranfers. (at the same cost as national bank transfers) Just go to your (local) bank, give them the order to book money on that particular IBAN-number (International Bank Account Number) and also give the BIC (Bank's International Code, used to be SWIFT) and they can make the transfer. Before I forget, only at "shared cost" basis, and only in EURO. (You only pay for the exchange from SKr to EUR)

    Ok, can't use my bank then, they only deal in Swedish crowns, I'll find some other way to make it.

    Thanks for the help.

    I did, and as far as I know, the money is in Germany now.

    The BIC code belings to the "Landsparkasse Schenefeld" in Schenefeld (Germany). Maybe they made a type error.

    Sorry for those who can't read German, but that was an old mate of the victim, and the only one who saw the accident.

    He explains the circonstances of the accident, and thanks all of the matal-scene for helping the family.

    That's the (rough) explanation.
