Stop Shouting At Us!!!!!

wow hukd has a cap locks filter on responses.

wow strong caps.

i would not trust it! especially if it is a lot of money! if it is less then 10 say, then bt will be fine!

just be cautious!

Surely its the buying taking the risk?

Please excuse the rudeness of the others...

They get upset when someone speaKS IN CAPITALS... (THEY NEED TO GET OUT MORE)

With regards to your Ebay question...

I personally wouldn't wouldn't have bought from this person and i wouldn't carry out any bank transfer...

How do you know the address is kosha?

Doh! Read the OP again! HGVDriver is the SELLER not buyer!

it is for £250

i checked the address against royal mail website

like i said m8... i cant see it as you taking the risk. Hes buying from you which means you will have the cash before you send.... So whats wrong with that:| if it was the other way round i wouldnt do it tho. the buyer is taking all the risks as far as i can see.

why?

In answer to the op, if he pays by BT, then its almost guaranteed to be safe, a lot safer than paypal anyway.

Just make sure the money is in your account before you send the item and you will be fine.

If you didn't offer it as a means of payment then don't accept it.. Be careful - you have to provide them with your bank details for a bank transfer.

Whats the item? Is it a high risk category like phones/consoles/other electricals?
Just trying to work out the possible angle if its dodgy? The only way a scam could be is if hes got access to someones online banking log-in details, and a suitable property to receive items at? Usually its a short term lease in fake name etc. Then they hit a few sellers hard in a rush and by the time the account holder has usually realised the goods have been delivered and they have vanished! I'm sure there is some way you can check on what other items someone has bought as feedback will not have been left yet.

why are people so paranoid about bank details? BT is probably the safest way to recieve money apart from western union/moneygram.
Chargebacks are almost impossible to do and you have your money instantly/within a couple of days. Why not accept it?

Only thing I would suggest is, ask him for the sort code and account number its coming from and check the sort code is local to the area he says he live, although thats not foolproof as he might be a student away from home, working away etc.

yea you'll be safe bud. if he's paying by bt all the info you'd need to give him is: name, bank name, account number and sort code. he cant do anything with that info other then put money in. he's taking all the risk by giving to you in that manner.

whats the buyers ebay ID I will check what else hes been bidding on for you.

Or set up a direct debit*:whistling:

No real risk as you'd be refunded anyway, but.... Jus' sayin' :lol:;-)

(*you could do that with a cheque as well of course...)
