Could you keep the interest? How much interest could you get until they fixed their error?

All I can say for sure is you would never hear from me again.

Protip - First step: Move it OUT of that account.

I would call the bank and let them know that they are incompetent. Then I'd ask them to give me half for helping them pick out flaws and errors in their system, ignoring the fact that they're using the money to hire a hit squad. What could go wrong?

I would transfer all the money to a bank account outside of the US. lol But in all honesty I would give it back because I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I did that.

well, you would have to call in and fix it, there is no way the bank would not notice a transaction like that... but if they said i could keep it... idk what i would do, buy each member of my family a house, and one for my self of course, finish up school with out worrying about finances... hell why do that.. retire...

sadly, there is nothing you could actually do befor they found out it was a mistake and returned it, you cant even take the money out without arousing suspition, or transfer it. the only thing you could do was find out how the mistake was made.

Apply with the banking industry for a job. Hey, this seems to be part of their entrance examine to participate these days. ;)

In all seriousness, I'd hope it rolled out some interest before discovery (otherwise leaving it untouched), take the interest to another bank and then inquire about the surplus and whether or not I'd be able to keep any earned interest legally. I'd add morally, but this is the banking industry in question...believe that account was overdrawn a long time ago.

Well if you have ever played Monopoly then you all know about "bank error in my favor". I say make a quick atm withdrawl and get out of dodge. That is just me though. I do think that they should compensate her in some way on a serious note!
