Dear person who put $3,425.00 in my bank account yesterday:

Thank you. Thank you very much. I'm sure I can find a use for it, however I'm startled, seeing I had thought I was $84 short of what I needed to pay my bills on Monday and was going to have to borrow some cash.

I have a feeling that somehow this money has been misallocated, and in fact it isn't mine at all.

If this money was put into my account by mistake, would you please speak up before I pay my phone bill, both credit cards, buy an old car for my husband and spend the rest on liquor and yarn?

Dude, if you don't speak up by Tuesday it's gone, and you're going to have to take it back in $100 monthly instalments over the next three years.

A Concerned and Startled Rabbitch

Oops. I am always goofing up like that - silly me. If it isn't too inconvenient, just send me a check - you have my name and address. Hell, if you want to hold back $84 for the hassle, no problem.
Well I would say if the person doesn't notice that amount is missing, they don't need it anyway.
Rabbitch, this has happened to me a couple of times. Bank error, big time. Very likely. The bank did someone's deposit, using someone's account number but the wrong branch number. I got $12,000 and $10,000 of someone else's money on two different occasions. Trust me, the bank will take it back, whether you have spent it or not, and not in installments, unless you have no future deposits with them ever. Do the unknown depositor a mitzvah and have the bank correct itself before he or she finds out and has a heart attack.

It could be your money if there's been an unexpected lump sum payment from your old job or your hubby has been depositing into your account or something. Unlikely, though. You and the unknown must have old accounts. Nowadays, this kind of thing rarely happens because the numbers are spread out better so there's little geographic overlap.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you but....

I don`t like to think of you all troubled about this money. Let me solve your worrry. Just send it to me...
You never know. This could be a financial ROAK or something. Does Hugh Hefner read your blog? You're pretty darn sexy and it's just the kind of thing Hugh might do. He's loaded. Although the gift might come with strings attached.
