Money not mine?


B

Bejay

Folks,

Got a question that somebody maybe able to help in this group, but not
related to MSMoney I have to add. I have been getting the run around from
certain banks who I have asked the same question, to see what the answer is?

The question is:

A sum of money was deposited into my current account 2 years ago, and
although I have written and emailed the bank in question that this money is
not mine ( I even have a letter from them that they would check it out). It
is still sitting in my account. Is there any time limit when I can say it is
legally mine as a 'finders keepers' sort of thing? or do I have to just put
up with it, and remember not to spend it!???

thanks Brian

There is no such thing as finders keepers, unless a find has been reported
to Police as lost property, in which case after a period of time the
ownership is ceded to the finder.
Since you know the money is not yours it will not become yours.
If you spend it, then your Bank, or another, attempts to reclaim it,
provided you have made confirmed attempts to notify the bank of the error
then the fault may lie with the your bank and they may have to foot the
correction themselves. Of course a lot depends on the sum involved.
If you really want to get some action from your bank, write or email the CEO
of personal banking in the UK. That will get some action.
