Bank Error in My Favor
Take A chance and lose the cash?
I was checking my bank statement online and noticed a deposit for $295.00 that I didn't recall making. Most of my deposits are direct or through PayPal so thought I would call and ask the origin of this particular deposit.
The young lady on the phone informed me that it was made at the drive-thru window but couldn't tell me what was included in the deposit. She then added, "I can request a copy for you."
"Does it cost anything?" I inquired, knowing there is always a charge for everything.
"Well if it is our mistake then 'no' but if you did in fact make that deposit it will cost 5 dollars."
"Okay, so I am either going to be out 5 bucks or $295.00. That's okay I really don't want to know that bad."
