Payment to third party

(Querist) 06 June 2012 This query is : Resolved 
I owe to a client and have to refund him some amount. he is not in country and had only once emailed me to make payment to his brother. They are 3 clients and only one of them sent me the email to pay to MR XYZ. The other two have not told me by written email. But the person collecting funds is insisting on me paying him for other 2 of them also. he is threatining me. i have told him i need in written from them but he is threatening me.what should i do???please let me know what is legally right?

It sounds fishy.
Pay only on account of the person who mailed for and take receipt fort that.
For rests insist on written demand and receipt.

refuse to make any payment unless you receive a letter on client letter head to make payment . should be signed by all 3 clients . dont bow down to threats

If the amount is huge,think twice before payment to third party,otherwise you will land into troubles.Make payment only by way of cheque or bank tranfer(NEFT OR RTGS),obtain due receipts.
