I was sitting and watching The Sheriffs Are Coming (series 5, episode 6).
So, one case came up…anyways…plaintiff won the case and defendant had to cough up some cash. Defendant requested the plaintiff to provide bank account details so that the money could be transferred. Plaintiff refused and instead requested a check as it was one of the payment methods recommended by the court.
So…my question is - can you be scammed if the supposed perpetrator knows your bank account details? In the episode it was implied that the plaintiff was refusing to provide sort code and account number because they were afraid of some sort of vice from the defendant.
You might be able to tell that I am not a native english speaker so sorry about the weird wording and stuff, but yeah
