I have never done anything like this.  If you are able to receive the 
file, I would save it to the OS in a file structure outside the web 
root, in a sub-directory linked to the account, and with a file name 
that is saved with the related transaction (e.g. the transaction Id 
could be the file name).

For the rest, I have no idea whether you could do that (not even certain 
I comprehend it.
