I was approached by a stranger who wanted a bank transfer of £10 to pay for bills since they apparently had to pay online, but they would give me cash in return. I assumed they would give me a fake bill but they only had a £20 and went into a store to split it into two £10s and handed one straight to me. So I agreed at this point and transferred the money.
The whole transaction seemed dodgy but I got a legit bill back. So was this a scam or the 1 time someone legitimately needed help?
I guess I’m more worried now about whether the stranger can somehow take more money from my account using the transfer? I would hate for the account itself to get hacked now and lose all my money.
