What Should I Do About The Strange $5000 In My Account?

I really don't know where to post this but decided to put it here because this section gets more traffic than the rest.I need urgent advice.I have a domiciliary account with one of these big banks in Nigeria.I checked my account balance three days ago And there was a strange $5000 in my account.I do not give my account number to anyone because it is for the purpose of credit card ONLY.So I do the depositing alone.When I requested for my statement in paper today,one mister xxxx paid in the money.What should I do?Or should I count it as God's blessing as God works in mysterious ways?But if am to return it . . . .To who?

I'm not telling u to spend it or report or watsoever

but blive me this might be a blessing in disguise,u may never know

a man from my village happened to be taxi driver,anyways d man has been through a lot,suffered and poverty has really dealt with him silly,until the day he carried a white man from d airport in lagos,and dropped him off at one hotel,d man thanked him gave him his name and contact details,but at d back of d car ,there was a brief case he left behind,this man did not see it until the nxt morning because he dropped d man very late in d night,d showed his wife,and d wife tld them to just keep it and see what happens,d man refused took d money went to the hotel and d hotel attendant said ,nobody has louged into tis hotel for like 2 wks now ,because everywhere was booked,d taxi driver was like naaasaa,its not possible that he dropped d white man here,and saw him enter talking to an attendant,attendant say no white man came here

this man took d money to the airport,and gave it to one of these custom officers,d sharp woman took d money and promised to return it to the owner,d woman took d money and resigned that day,nobody heard from her,this taxi man became so poor that to feed sef na wahala,until one day he met a mad man on d street,this mad man told him that why did he return d money,that that monexy was a blessing on his way because of all d suffer ,but that hes lost his opportunity and should not pray and ask for prosperity again,d taxi man died a wretched man

this might look like tales by moonlight to u,but my father told me this story when i was 16 years,which my mum too confirmed

If you are a christian, Give Thanks to God for his provision, and then spend it.

If you are an atheist like myself, Thank your bank for the error in your favor, and spend it.

The way they do it here in the states, even if you close out your account they wil take you to court after they find out about the missing money. So be careful like someone already told you report it to the bank and let them take care of it.

This little story below goes with my advice

We had a client and a good one at that who walked into our office one day

and decided she was selling a sizeable chunk of her securities with us

It was unlike her but as was with us, we obliged her request

Now just prior to paying her cheque, she sent message that the cheque be paid into her Access Bank account

It was on instructing our Relatioship officer that we learnt that the lady was in police custody

What happened

8 months ago, this event happened in May,

the sum of N5m was mistakenly credited to her account by the tallying guys

She came to her account one morning and saw that she was 5M richer.

She kept quiet for three months, no response

5 months, no response and then my lady, i do rather say, 'wisely',

Invested the money, bought shares and was practically enjoying the money

When the rightful beneficiary of the money raised an alarm with the Bank

Investigation started with the Customer's lawyer threatening fire and brimstone

After close to eight months, the money was traced to the lady's account.

The cashier was fired while the woman was written to fund her account so the transaction can be reversed

For where the woman disaapeared, so to speak,

After 3 months of dilly dallying, when she say that nothing could be done to claim the money as hers

She sold the stock but then, Police has already arrested her.

Well, she paid back after selling the stocks. But if she had raised alarm at the begining

maybe some award and public appearance would have come her way as an "Honest" Nigerian

Ice,

Let the Branch Manager of the Bank know about the money

I bet you, they will never spend it.

Infact if the owner is not found it will be in your account till the owner is found

Why i said you should notify the Bank if to be on a safe side

SO that at the end of a period and the owner money of the money isn't found,

please go ahead and spend it.

God will never bless you if you don't sweat for something or illegitimately.

E no dey happen.

people are careless all the time, but you should never take advantage of it. If someone loses his wallet right in front of you, won't you kindly tell him?

The bank knows who this person is. There is no crime in trusting them.

Even though that *little voice in your head* says spend, spend, spend, this is your lucky day. I say speak to the Bank Manager about the mix up, if you spend now, you'll pay back later.

Make further investigations and don't be so quick to spend it.
