New ebayers are often reluctant to give out bank details - and who can blame them?! Bank fraud seems to be getting easier and easier so I just have one little tip that can prevent any fraudulent use of your bank details.
When using satchels and postbags you are required the sender to sign a declaration. Just be aware that the person you are sending an item to already has your bank details and now they have your signature! All they need to make an over the counter withdrawal at some banks.
So, just be careful when signing your name.... either sign it completely different to how you usually do, or do what I do and just squiggle or intial.
