Accepting a bank wire transfer What should we be concerned with? BradleyT msg:633830 9:18 pm on Sep 22, 2005 (gmt 0) We received a call from a company in South America that wants to place a large order ($5,400) through our new store. They want to do a bank wire transfer.
We googled the company name (it's a franchise store) and it's linked to by a lot of legitimate sites so we doubt it's like a Nigerian scam.
What precautions should we take? Are they able to withdraw funds when we give them our bank account numbers? Or are wire transfers set up to be one-way transactions?
