    When I checked my account this morning there was £80000 extra in my account. Obviously that is a lot of money. :eek:

    What should I do? I think I will just keep my mouth shut.

    What would happen if the bank found out I had it and didn't say anything?

    Do nothing - but don't spend it.
    In all liklihood they'll realise it was a mistake eventually.

    Now you have £80000 in the bank by accident.

    If you spend it and they ask for it back, there's a good chance you'll then be £80k in debt. You don't have to say anything I don't think, but I'd wait a while because if they transfer it back you're in trouble if you spent it.

    If that was me, I would transfer the money to another account immediately, leave the country, change my appearance and never come back

    Could I not spend it and say I didn't know it wasn't mine?

    They'll notice and ask for it back eventually. I think the interest is yours though when they do. Not sure.

    Notify the bank asap and whatever you do, DON'T spend it. You can be charged under Section 24A of the Theft Act 1968 for retaining/spending money that doesn't belong to you.
