    What kind of conduct do you think s24A(8) covers? What is the scenario do you think they contemplated? I would have thought they were at least trying to cover the conduct in Douglas, but that the wording is flawed in that it says "to the extent the money was derived from the stolen credit" which, strictly speaking, would mean that there has to be money which in the first place is stolen or fraudulently obtained in the normal sense, not in the 24A(8) sense
    I think it is intended to cover something like this: D1 steals some goods, fences them and pays the money into D2s account. D2 withdraws some or all of that money and hands the withdrawn notes to D3. The effect of s 24A(8) is that D3 can be convicted of handling stolen goods provided he is dishonest etc (it doesn't matter whether D3 pays those notes into yet another account). Without s 24A(8) he could not be, because the actual notes received by D2 when he makes a withdrawal from his account are not stolen - they belonged to the bank and the bank paid them out pursuant to a contractual obligation to do so.

    I am being serious £80000 has been put into my account

    My head is telling me to tell the bank my heart is saying keep your mouth shut.
    Tell the bank that there appears to have been a slight mishap in your bank account, and how it appears as if some money has been accidentally placed in there. If you're courteous about it, they'll probably give you a largeish sum of money for your honesty. That happened to me when I had 3,500 placed into my account. I told them about it, and they gave me £1,750 as a 'sweet gift' for my honesty :')

    Ahh, very good. The idea is that I shouldn't be reading s24A(8) as being in conjunction with s24A(2A)(d), it has nothing to do with that. (8) provides the ability to then prosecute for handling of stolen goods under s22, rather than an intention to expand the type of conduct covered by s24A?

    That makes a lot more sense. Thanks indeed for taking the time to provide the links and the explanation.

    That sounds highly improbable. Commercial banks don't get to where they are by giving away money.

    I could just take the 80000 and go to the casino and put it all on red. If it comes up I could let the bank know about their mistake and give the orignal 80000 back. If not just keep my mouth shut and act stupid if the bank ever come calling.
    The Bank: Oh? You didn't realise you made an £80,000 withdrawal/made an online transaction for £80,000?

    They would see that you've used it if you betted online or in a casino...

    I could say it wasn't me and it must be fraud.
