Unsolicited BACS payment in our account – Scam?

I’ve a vague idea of a scam that goes like this – the bank have up to 6 months to reverse fraudulant transactions – so someone pays you by BACS – you refund the money to the bank details that you’re supplied with and then 5 months later the bank reverses the original fraudulant transaction. Advise your bank of the mistake and ask them to reverse the transaction and refund any charges. Do it in writing, get proof of posting and keep a copy of the letter.
