Thanks ladies  :D

I think my bank offers the facility to send funds using a mobile tel no so I will look into that seeing as the 3v vouchers are no longer an option.

Am I right in saying that Amazon vouchers can now be traced so better to set up an Amazon account in my escorting name rather than use my own?

No they can't be traced. If however you send a thank you note from Amazon, it will have the name Amazon have for you on it. I simply ignore that option and tell the client  by email(or whatever other method we agree).

What's stopped being anonymous is sending them: you now get to see what Amazon thinks the sender is called, rather than having to rely on any message with them.

In the past, I had one where I had no clue - because of no message - who it was from.
'The Ian formerly known as SW5'. What they said: "Indispensable", "You are our best resource", and (hours later!) "I'm afraid that you're being made redundant..."

Does giving out your bank details cause a security problem?

I have heard that someone can take money out from your account if they have these details...my bank has told me this but will not elaborate on how ?

My bank told me the opposite.

The account I use for deposits never has more than I can afford to lose, and isn't connected to my other accounts in any way.

When I set up the account the bank assured me that the account name isn't required.

Sometimes a transfer form requires a name,  and I've found it can be any name so I give my working initials. This has worked for cash deposits, online, phone and in branch transfers.

It would appear the account name is merely a formality.

I do check the account and sort code number several times to avoid any mistakes. I also keep a contact trail in case the transfer is ever disputed.

I accept payments via bank transfer. I give the client my account number and sort code, that's all they need, the name is purely for their own reference so I tell them to use whatever's best for them.

It says that 3v visa prepaid vouchers are being discontinued.  ???

"Unfortunately, the 3V Visa product is being discontinued on 16th December 2015 and 3V vouchers will only be available to be purchased up to this date."

"Customers purchasing a 3V Visa voucher will continue to have 3 full months from date of purchase to redeem and spend the virtual 3V Visa number."

It depends which country you're in and which website you're looking at. The Canadian 3vcash has the above message but if you look at the site 3vprepaid it still seems to be working.

3v vouchers, untraceable, not refundable and can be transfered in to your bank account for a small fee. Can be bought from any corner shop with a payphone machine

Thanks for sharing this, it's useful as I need to take a deposit from a new client, will give this a go. :)

If transferring online a name isn't needed / requested. Although reading through this thread it has reminded me that on a few occasions when I have paid cash over the counter with just the sort and account details (which some clients may want to do for anonymity) the cashier has sometimes said the name of who I am paying it into? To check I have the right person.
No issue as I have only ever paid to friends / family..... but a thought for others?
