Let's say that I'm getting reimbursed for an out of pocket expense by a company. Due to this post I'm concerned about giving out my account number. even if I trust the company - the account number can leak. If reimbursement using acount number happens with multiple companies - that risk rises.

What would be the safest ways to get such reimbursement remotely?

    You could have them write and mail a check. It's worked for many, many years; it still works. – keshlam Oct 1 '15 at 2:43

    @keshlam I've not heard of an arbitrary company doing a direct bank transfer for an expense reimbursement so a check is probably the most logical way to handle it. If the OP is concerned about his or her employer having his/her account number, then that's a different level of tinfoil hat wearing. – Eric Oct 1 '15 at 3:32

To make it an official Answer: If you aren't willing to give them any of your own banking information, have them write you a check.
