Seems to be worded like a Nigerian scam doesn't it. Surely a BT can be done with a sort code and account number. Seems alittle too much information needed.

Think I'd be wary.

If you give them just a sort and account number can they set up anything with that alone?

it will be recalled, it will be paid using a hacked bank account

Tell them you will only accept payment by western union or moneygram
