Hi, I transfer money from my standard bank current account into my friends standard bank offshore account. I used his standard bank offshore account number and just did a normal transaction. Is this fine? Because he hasn’t received the money yet and it’s been two days

I would track that. My daughter lost R12k by doing the same thing. It went into a local bank account as the acct number was the same as the offshore act number & there was no way to check the beneficiary name. I believe it has since changed. Std Bank would not reverse the funds without a subpoena from the police who also did nothing. The incorrect beneficiary said it was his money, promptly closed his account and disappeared.
Hope you have better luck
