Interesting Fact – Money

It’s an imprisonable offence to keep money you notice has been wrongfully deposited in your bank account.

(It’s called “retaining wrongful credit” and unlike in Monopoly when you can keep the money if you pick up the “Bank error in your favour – collect £200” card, you have to take every step to inform the bank of their error. So much for the law of finders keepers.)
