    Yes although on this occasion I do know she was genuinely scammed. I was involved in helping her getting stuff sorted for the bank submission for re-claim and read all the correspondence - she was utterly dumb, but the bank was also totally negligent. My bank are forever blocking card payments for no earthly reason - this one had 1000 red flags of "scam" (unusual amount for her, new payee, foreign ISP log-in where she had logged in from the UK only hours before -- would have thought even the dumbest AI system would pick this up.

    I also know she has plenty of other cash -- she just can't easily withdraw from fixed deposits without penalty - so I'm happy to wait to see if the bank refunds her. Friendly good tenants get good responses. She didn't just not-pay and blank me.

      Exactly how much penalty to withdraw from fixed deposits (in £ and pence) would it cost her to pay the rent she owes?

        SO's will only be paid if there ar sufficient funds in the payee's bank account on that date.

          One possibility is that rent payment is not well-aligned with income payment.
          Not everyone can budget well. T may be needing to obtain money from a savings account to pay the rent (put there to avoid spending it on other things) and doesn't want the rent taken before she has ensured that the money is available.

          I have with several tenants agreed to rent being paid just after pay day rather than insist on it being paid the due date a few days before pay day.
