    Error in Bank Transfer

    Hi I recently transfered some money via bank transfer to the wrong person (was actually transfered to another HotUKDeals user who I had previously Dealt with. I contacted the person and they said that they would transfer the money back into my account but havent. I used a Nat West current account does anyone know if there is a way of getting the money back.

    Thanks

    Thank you and goodnight.

    AFAIK its up to you to be sure its going to the correct person the banks won't do anything about it so fingers crossed the othere person will return it ..... Best of luck

    Ye I know it was my mistake but i was tired and it was a friend in the army who phoned me up late seeing if i would transfer him some money to get a hotel at a midway point on his way home and natwest lists the people you have transfered to and i clicked the wrong name.

    Im guessing it has gone has the guy has not been on for 8 days, but with himn saying he had transfered the money I got my hopes up. I think if the boot was on the other foot I would have transfered it back but I guess I'll have to pay for my mistake.

    could always ring the bank and see what they say? least they can say is no...

    was it a lot of money?

    i did ring the back the second i did it, but they said all i can do is contact the person. It was £80 not the end of the world but a kick in the teeth for trying to do someone a favour. I thought with it being someone i dealt with successfully on here he might have given it me back.


    Do you not have their details from your trade?

    Take them to a small claims court?

    there username is (removed)

    Ill name and shame them because they do know as they contacted me saying they had transfered the money back. :P

    Perhaps it just hasn't gone through yet then, don't think you should put their username on here tbh

    what day did you make the payment

    its been over a week it would have gone through. i dont see why noit i have not lied about anything, so why cant i say what has happened.

    Why ? depends on how long ago they said they would transfer back, also lack of comms on there part so op is getting worried and dont blame them !

    Exactly, no-one knows, so what's the point of putting his username on here?

    Edit - OP didn't say it had been a week

    i made the patment on the 11th messaged the person on the 11th, got a reply on the 12th saying theyd transfered it back. Never got a reply since when asking.

    They haven't been online in 6 days...perhaps on hols?

    Original Poster

    maybe but why say that they have already made the transfer when they hadnt?

    There could be an issue with the transfer that they aren't aware of due to being away...I personally would remove the name and shame before mods do ;-)

    Original Poster

    i have removed the name reluctantly but i dont feel i have done anything wrong by posting it.

    I missed it.

    Who was it again?

    Why have you removed it if you don't feel you've done anything wrong by posting it?

    Original Poster

    i think its gone now. No idea why the army dont pay for his digs, not sure if they expense the the cost or they just dont give uit em back. I know he drives too and from germany.

    eh ,police it is theft after all,show them the evidence and see what they say ,then again they might be busy giving out fixed penaltys rather than catching theives and the like.........understaffed you know!

    If you have his name, sort code etc, can you not make a payment for something.....say your broadband, phone bill, etc to the amount he owes you?
    Underhanded i know but still 80 quid is 80 quid.

    Its hardly theft.

    Bit stuck to suggest anything really OP. Just keep on at them, maybe start a small claim, however I'm a bit stuck as to what the POC would be.
