Hello, What happens between two peers is no business of others. They can do what you said if they're cooperating, and many other dirty tricks. And that's not a problem at all for other nodes.
The only thing they can't do for not is advertise a channel without telling others where it was funded on the chain, but that's just for antispam reasons (as other nodes must keep track of all announced channels) as far as I know.

Suppose in a payment channel network say 2 parties B and C are malicious, controlled by same adversary. They had initially opened a channel of 1 BTC. But suppose they get 3 transaction request will flow value of 0.4 BTC each. After 1st 2 transaction, B and C has capacity of 0.2 BTC. But what if BC reports an incorrect residual balance thereby accepting the 3rd transaction. Who will keep track of this capacity violation since no one is keeping track of this residual value ? If this case is true, then parties might resort to such a strategy opening a low value channel but still accepting multiple transactions where the total payment value of all transaction exceeds channel capacity. Please correct me if I am wrong. > > -- > Yours sincerely, > Subhra Mazumdar. > >
