    Do you mean someone has put money into your account without any form of context and you are planning on spending it? If so, it's very controversial. I believe that people have been ordered to compensate money paid into accounts in such a way

    No he means someone putting money into his acount without his permission and that person using the money themselves. For example maybe his friend put £20 into his bank account for some reason and his friend uses his bank account to spend that £20

    Don't spend any money that doesn't belong to you - that's theft, even if it has been accidentally placed in your account. Just like if you find a purse in the road with money in it. Even though you found it and you can't see an owner - it's not yours and spending it is against the law. Notify your bank.
