Afternoon all, another question for the knowledge bowl. I have just sold a very high value item on ebay and the bloke has just paid me (almost instantly, which believe it or not I don't like as it is a lot of money) via a chaps payment into my bank account. My question is that if the account which it was sent from turns out to be dodgy? and the payment was sent without the cardholders knowledge, where do I stand? I believe that it would be the fault of the sending bank for allowing the fraud to occur in the first place. What else concerns me is the mail that he sent me: - "Hi Russ, As per our telephone conversation my full name is xxxx I have transferred the funds by CHAPS you will receive it today. The account that i have cannot transfer money out of halifax, so i transferred it to my partner's account and he has made the CHAPS payment his current account for me but he thought it was for a car. So when the payment comes through it will say its for a car from Mr xxxx. Speak to you this evening." The product he has bought is my business, with no stock and no premises, literally a website, contact details etc... If he was a scammer why would he not just buy electronics with dodgy cash? Why buy a business which you have to invest loads of cash into? I am probably thinking WAY to much into this. I just don't like how the cash came from someone else and he thinks that it is for a car but I cannot see a way or a reason why somebody would want/could con someone like this because the product has no REAL value without another large investment. Advice please.
