Can you prevent someone from paying money into your bank account?

I recently fell out with a friend (he was horrible to my dog :mad:). He apparently told a mutual friend that he was going to try paying £20 into my bank account (he knows my account number and sort code because he once borrowed money off me for drinks and paid it back direct) to make amends. I told the mutual friend no but she says she told him that and he wants to do it anyway.

However I don't want his money. Can I ask my bank to stop payments from him? Or into my account generally if not from him specifically? (I am changing accounts in a few months anyway)

Not as far as I know.
May as well just keep the money, you don't have to forgive him or be friends with him again. But at least you get £20.

Just send it back again when it appears, just pay it back into your ex-friend's account.

But then again, I see no issue in keeping it getting annoyed by it will just stir things up more...

Don't think so. I would just send it back to them.

There's no way that I know of to block incoming payments. I's guess that you bank could do it if they really wanted to but I doubt they would without a good reason. Just receive it and send it back.

I think I will send it back if he does, I don't know his bank/account number/sort code though or anything except his full name. Will my bank have a record of those (based on the £20 transaction) so be able to send those back automatically?

No idea about your bank but with mine if you know the other persons details you can have it blocked failing that you can return to sender as it were or just keep it.

Thanks, which bank are you with? I don't know his account number etc. for returning it to him but if he sends it it might be on that transaction

Yar it should be on the 'ticket' if not you could always give a cheque to a middleman as it were?

Or just keep it. You're not obliged to be his friend just because he's given you some money.
