    I would leave it in the account, and tell noone. Forget about it, and spend it in a few years if noones claimed it. Probably when I left uni, if noone had claimed it by then, its doubtful they ever would.

    My parents would bail me out. I'd withdraw all the money and claim I'd spent it on a holiday (so non-returnable: in reality it would be put into another account). If accused of theft, I would say I thought it was the money my parents had promised to put in my account (they've started to put a little bit in each month as I'm seriously broke) and my parents would back me up on that, even if that hadn't promised me any money that month. Or ever!
    As far as I'm concerned, they can't force me to pay it back; I'd close my account. If you go into a shop and see a £100 jacket with a 'sale' sign on it with no indication of how much it's been reduced by and you buy it and are only charged £5 instead of the actual £50 sale price and you go home and 'damage' the jacket so it is unreturnable, there's no way the shop owners can send you a bill. And I refuse to believe the bank can do the same thing.

    I would be willing to take them to court on that. *fights_wildy_for_the_hypothetic al_money* :mad:

    I'd go to tiffany...

    but I'd make sure I didn't spend so much that my card got flagged up with unusual behavior. Just act casual! :ninja2:

    I'd ring my bank and query it.

    Except they have cameras at cash machines so they could just look at the footage and tell it was you.
    Except I'd wear a large hat and duffel coat as to hide my identity, perhaps a mask... as would any thief who knew there were cameras.

    Id like to think id tell the bank it would be tempting to spend it but i know theyd ask for it back, spent or not, if they found out! And it must be someone's money and id be devastated if my money dissapeared into someone else's account, so id feel bad for whoever it was and id hope that someone would do the same for me!

    I know they say the government is pouring money into education, but £2m EMA payments are probably unnecessary....

    Isn't there like a law where if something's in your possession for over 6 months it's like legally a third yours?
