Before even considering it, I’d ask the L/L for evidence (surely there is correspondence from HMRC?) that his accounts are frozen.

Also, if you pay to a 3rd party (whoever that may be), the L/L no longer has any responsibility in the event of overpayments (barring out & out fraud) – it will be the third party payee.

The situation may well be entirely above board, but caution is needed – and the prospective payee needs to be made aware of his / her responsibilities (& rights).
