Balance Transfer to card not in your name?

Hi All,

Been trying to get a 0% card in my name but not having much luck and have seen my Dad has a Cheque offer from Barclays where he can transfer £5k to his card and got me thinking that if i transfered mine to his then back to mine i could get 0%??

Would save me £600 a year intrest. Ive transfered Balances from mine to partners cards before so im hoping it will be ok, just need to convince my dad!!
