    cause for concern

    hi
    was supposed to receive payment from stinger151 a couple of days ago but have nothing in my account. as hes with the same bank as me it should have been instant. looking at his profile hes only got 1 post which was in my thread. He has got my account number and sort code and was wondering is there anything he could do with it like take money out etc

    not yet was waiting for payment plus thought it was a bit dodgy as he had no posts at all.
    im relieved to find out that you cant do anything as i heard you can. was thinking of going to the bank and get my details changed etc :-D

    no im 99% sure, someone will confirm, its the same details that are on a cheque if you write one so your ok, many use that method now

    Its always worth advising your branch of this though, and they will keep an eye on the account for adverse activity

    if hes paid online i doubt it would be instant - usually a couple of days - if hes gone into a bank it should have been instant - have you asked him how he paid???

    3-5 working days is usually the case with bank transfers (even if its the same bank), altho calling them up to transfer money or actually going into the bank is instant.

    he can do nothing...my bank account number is 99083814 and my sort code is 603022...enjoy!

    Can I have your name and address too, then I can use the info to setup some dodgy direct debits to pay my ebay fees:whistling:

    Why so many replies suggesting that the posting of the sortcode and account number in someway means we're all going to be able to clear out that bank account? If that was all that was needed cheques would have been ruled out yonks ago. Not only do they contain all the above information, they also have a fresh clean copy of the account holders signature!

    Annoys me on eBay when I ask a seller if they'd like to give me their account details so that I can pay cash in over the counter directly into their account and they seem to treat it as a security risk (so then they get the funds from me via PayPal, which is quite ironic given how that system is so open to abuse!).

    Tell me about it. From the other side, I won't use PP when selling but offer bank transfer so obviously i'm dodgy:giggle:

    By the way I HAVE heard of somebody who had their account details used for ebay fees on DD. They did get a refund from the bank (under the DD gaurantee), but it's hassle you don't need:thinking:

    That's about as far as anybody can go to abuse the details though afaik.

    :giggle: :giggle: lmao

    my account number is 55378008 - used to be 71077345 !!!!! :thumbsup:

    Funny thing is 55378008 and 71077345 are two of the few things I learnt in primary school that I still remember...

    With Clydesdale or Yorkshire bank it takes 3 working days to clear(to the same bank) well They are the same bank and someone transfered from their Yorkshire Account to my Clydesdale and it took 3 days stupid.
