Question
A has demanded payment from B for an amount of R 50 000 which he believes B is owing. B has checked his records and has paid the amount in the bona fide belief that the amount is owed in terms of their contract. Unbeknown to B, his bookkeeper, C has already paid the amount a week earlier by way of electronics funds transfer in the account of A. At the time of the second payment, A’s account was overdrawn in the amount of R 30 000 and therefore in credit of R 20 000 after the payment. A has taken R 15 000 out of his account to pay his employees their monthly wages. He has also paid R 10 000 for a luxury weekend after realising that his account was in credit. Discuss whether B has a claim against A and if so what may he claim?
