They lost $3500 out of my account 2 weeks ago and have been stonewalling me ever since. That is called stealing.
Lawyers are getting involved if I do not have my money today.

Solid troll, but you gave yourself away with the $3500. No one on this board believes you have that much to your name.
Just got an email from turbotax saying my tax return should be coming soon. Over 2k. Was getting a little worried because I was being reviewed. Sucks 4 u.
he sold his body to a group of gaybes for a month.....I'd say that 3500 is legit
Not a fvcking troll.
Fify, those pesky decimals can get confusing sometimes.
It takes up to 3 full weeks to reimburse that kind of money in a fraud case.. thats why not every dime you own should be in your checking..
I Ain't got no Worries - Lebron James
Shouldn't have loaned the government so much money over the past year, IYAM.
this happens all the time at banks. often times it's a coding error within their ERP/CRM banking software, we're talking millions of dollars processed incorrectly.
a few years ago $115k was deposited in error into my parents savings account that they forgot they even had. it took the bank 4 years to realize the error. never knew until the bank sent a certified letter apologizing for the error and taking the $$$ out of the account.
this. my cash is hidden and IT'S NOT at the bank
I worked on a case over the summer involving litigation stemming from a wrongful transfer by BoA of about $800K into a failing business' account. The business owner started shuffling the money around as soon as he realized he had it, and he was hiding it in literally every possible vehicle he could find to frustrate tracing. Ultimately, we think he was planning on declaring bankruptcy, fleeing with cash, and leaving BoA to pick up the tab.
TL;DR - Banking errors happen all the damn time, some for a whooooole lot of money.
what if they had spent that money?
maybe he was just trying to get his money back for bailing out the banks with his tax money [smile]
You should move your account to Bobby Lowders Bank at Colonial. Most of Auburn's top recruits swear they do a phenomenal job.
I always bank with a credit union. Best way to go imho.
the ironic part is my mom works for this bank - been with the company 18 years.
if they spent the money they would be liable for it.
it's not like getting any extra Spicy Chicken sandwich in your bag, they hate messing up and will do whatever it takes to fix the problem/pretend like it never happend.
I have an account at a credit union and I love them
What are the legal obligations by the owner of the account which received the money mistakenly?
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
Trust me when I say that I hate BoA with a passion. Thank God we weren't advocating for them in this case and that my firm only had an outside interest. I almost wanted him to get away with it just to stick it to BoA (but, I'm sure they'd find some way to pass that loss on down to their other customers through increased fees or something).
Had 10k disappeared from a b of a account a few years ago. They had it back in my account the same day.
lol, no doubt man
Depends on the state, but you're most likely legally obligated to give it back.
If the bank (or any other entity, like the IRS, your employer, etc.) mistakenly deposits money in your account, it's technically yours (for the moment). There's also a presumption that any money you spend out of your accounts uses your actual money first, so don't feel like you can't spend anything as soon as the accidental deposit occurs. As soon as you start tapping into the accidental deposit though, you expose yourself to legal liability - could be criminal, could be civil, depending on the source of the accidental deposit.
The best thing to do in cases like this is just to leave the amount (whatever it is) untouched in your account. It could be years before someone notices that it's missing. Here's the rub - if your account balance ever goes below the amount deposited (say the deposit is $100K, you have $20K in your account, and you go out and spend $22K on a car) you expose yourself to liability, even if you replace the money.
