Probably, but she was sufficiently annoyed not to bother. I showed her my Nationwide one and said get a decent bank.The debit card for my NatWest current account is like that too. The

Of course the account has a number, it's just that it's not printed on
the debit card. Maybe it's some kind of security. Surely your friend
must have some other way to find out what her account number is.
