Need help/advice etc A deposit of $1900 has been made into my account. Either my bank has transferred money into my account by mistake or someone has transferred their money into an incorrect account. Do I contact my bank, leave the money in there for X period of time then spend it or what? Is the money now mine because its in my account? I don't know what the go is these days. I remember when I came to Aust 16yrs ago $800 was put into my account. I spent the money. Months later I received a letter from the bank demanding I repay it back but because I had no way of paying it back my mother had to pay the bank. Money couldnt have come at a better time because this years tax return I gotta pay the tax office $8k.
