What do you think?
Hi Ramesh (I assume that is your name?),

PayPal, or getting a check, would be safer.

People can sometimes use your bank account details to defraud you.

Here is an article about this...

Is it safe to send bank details over email?

"Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson was certainly surprised after he published his bank account number and sort code in his column in The Sun, claiming that the worst-case scenario was that someone would be able to pay money into his account. ... Within a few days he was confessing in that same column that he was wrong, not least because someone had used his account information to set up a direct debit for 500 in favour of a charity, which didn’t require any further verification of identity. Bad guys often use this kind of information as yet another part of the jigsaw puzzle to build a picture for full-scale identity theft, with all the credit rating and fraud problems that accompany it."

Best wishes,
