    say i successfully complete the escrow deal with the buyer. (im selling the website). the money is now in my bank account. if for any reason the buyer changes his mind later on, can he dispute and somehow get the money back, even if its already in my bank accnt? (no im not doing anything shady, just wonderin)

    Legally no,

    Because the hole point of escrow is that the funds are not released unless the terms of the escrow are met.

    If they do dispute, it will be the escrowers problem, not yours.

    Once the money is in your Bank, they need to go to court to get it back.

    money will be in your account only if the other party does not dispute and accepts that the transaction is complete.

    After that, not even the escrow company can do anything about it. He will have to file a case of fraud and jump through lots of hoops and still may not be able to get it back.

    Once the money is sent to the sellers bank account... Its not coming back unless the seller sends it back to you. :)
