Can you tell the name on a bank account from the account number?

DisJohn asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I wrote a check to a company I deal with.  The company said they never received the check abd no payment was applied to my account with them but the check was cashed by a large bank where I live and it made it through my bank.

When I asked the bank for a copy of both the front and back of the check it was never endorsed.

There is a stamp with the account number of the person/company who cashed it.

Neither bank can/is willing to tell me the name on the bank account that the account number belongs to.  That would be the easiest way for me to get this cleared up without going through a fraudelent check process.

Is there any way to see what name (either corporation or individual) is linked to a bank account number?
