I have my laptop up for sale on a computer forum. There's a guy in Canada that wants to purchase it and says he wants to transfer the money from his bank account to my bank account. He said all he needs is my name, account number, and routing number. Now, I know with that information you should be able to wire transfer money from account to account, but I just don't feel right about this. Couldn't he print out checks with my info and use them fraudulently? I know the person cashing the check should verify ID and all that snaz, but if he puts a fake name on it, one that matches his ID, then as long as he has a valid account number and routing number he should be all set. Hell, now that I think about it, he could use my account on the internet and do a whole bunch of crap with it.
So, should I tell this guy to bite me or what?
