LiT Posted January 3, 2014 Share Posted January 3, 2014 Hi, I don't know if it happened already to other contributors, I received on the 18th of december, from "email@example.com" the following email: From: Finance [firstname.lastname@example.org]Sent: 18 December 2013 11:31To: FinanceSubject: Alamy Ltd-Payment delayed-Your action required Hi, We tried to send a payment to you on the 2nd Dec 2013, but it has been returned to us by your bank. No explanationwas given.However, it is likely there is either an error in the bank details we hold for you or the account has been closed.Request you to· Check with your bank for correct details· Update it to “Payment and tax details” in “My Alamy” page.· Email usThanksFinance team The email is not signed, it looks like a spam, is very cold and affirmative (it is likely there is either an error in the bank details). In fact, there is no error in the bank details I provided. I also contacted my bank who never received any transfer attempt form Alamy "finance" services. I have been travelling all of december and coming back home at the beginning of january, I see that alamy has already added the mention: "Invalid payment details " on my "balance of account " page. Without having been in touch once with me except this email. I just wrote to them today to solve this issue but I am quite ..... off. How would one call this type of practice: Pretend to send a transfer (while the bank hasn't recorded any attempt), then invalidate my account in my "alamy page" while my payment details are correct. In general the payer is the one who should trace the transfer ioperation, not the receiver, nor the bank. If anyone has expereinced this kind of issue, please let me know, for the moment, I can just conclude that Alamy is involved in some sort of abusive practices and methodolgies inorder to avoid to pay what is due...
