    dangers of giving bank details to buyers? 2nd Dec 04 at 9:24 PM
    ive recently started selling on ebay, everything has gone very smoothly with people paying either with cheques, cash or usually paypal, but i have had one lady who demands my bank details, ie account number and sort code, so she can deposit the money she owes me in her bank , i asked my bank and they said i should be careful, so i wont give her the details. am i being unreasonable, i realise that the details she needs would be on one of my cheques, what are the dangers???
