Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Would you like assistance with the employment or fraud side of this, as they are 2 different issues
Okay i will opt out so another expert can assist you
What proof did you provide to your employer that you asked the bank to return the money the day after it arrived?
How much money is in issue here?
You say that the bank did not act on your request and you then wait until it was picked up at work. Why did you wait?
Has the matter been reported to the police?
Has the money now been returned in full?
How long after it was paid to your account in error, was the money eventually returned?
Thank you. One other thing, and this is really important, you said that the bank didn’t act on your request “so I left the funds in my account until the mistake was picked up at work”. At what stage did you find out that this money was still in your account?
Did you not look at your bank statements for seven weeks? If this went to court, I think you may struggle to convince a judge or jury or magistrates that was the case so you would need some really compelling reason why you didn’t know this money was in the account or why you just left it there when the bank didn’t send it back.
