    What would you do with the money?

    Give it back? (because you feel you can't take from your parents, not because they transferred it by mistake)

    Buy yourself something nice?

    Well… if it was an accident, you'd have to give it back. You can't exactly steal money from your own parents :lol:

    If they intended to give it to you, that's a different story :yep:

    Oh well then I probably would accept it. I'm pretty sensible with money though so it's not like I'd be very wasteful with it.

    Put it towards a student loan, providing I end up going to university.

    I'd ask them where they managed to get £5000 from first of all.
