    Ladies, someone has bought something off me, but has just emailed asking for my account number and sortcode to pay. Is that common on ebay? I've never been asked that before and don't know if it's a bit dodgy?

    TIA:flower:

    Sounds like they dont have PayPal.

    Do not give your account details.

    Ask for a cheque or PO.

    There is no need at all for them to do that! Paypal can be set up really easily or they can send a cheque or Postal Order. Do not give bank details out EVER. If they get arsey about it point out the payment options you offered in the listing and if necessary report to ebay!
