Doesn't matter if they have all your bank details, after all, that's how you make a virement no?

The usual scam goes along the lines of making a booking then sending you a huge deposit or full amont, then 'something comes up' and he has to cancel and could you return the money.  Strangly, the original transfer from him fails for some reason (surprise, surprise) and the bank cancels it, you meantime have sent a wedge of money to him and can only wave goodbye.  Good spot by the way, I don't know how you always sort out the genuine bookings from the fake!

Editted 'cos  can't type for toffee today
