Sounds like a Scammer. Do not give him any of your bank details. Someone cannot make a deposit into your bank account without your ABA Routing# and Acct# and I sure as hell wont give that info to some stranger on the internet, possible scammer posing as a buyer.Some member wants to buy a pair of TR from me and wants to pay via bank deposit. How safe is it? I usually take payment through paypal so I am so unfamiliar with bank deposit payments!
Even for wire transfer you need a Routing# and Acct# and I would not recommend giving that info to some stranger who could be a scammer. He/She now has your bank acct# & routing# andd can initiate fraudulent transactions.Did you specify what kind of bank deposit? Wire like Western Union or they are actually going to deposit the money in your account? If it's the latter, I'd say no because no way I would give out my bank account number to anyone.
Is your buyer in Canada as well?
I agree on the check thing. But this sounds way too fishy for me that someone would want to make a direct bank deposit.This is not to disagree with the notion that this may be a scammer, but you give out your bank info to every single person/place you write a check to. It's not very secret
You can send money through WU without giving out account info.Even for wire transfer you need a Routing# and Acct# and I would not recommend giving that info to some stranger who could be a scammer. He/She now has your bank acct# & routing# andd can initiate fraudulent transactions.
