The Bank Isn’t Quite On The Money

| Los Angeles, CA, USA | Working | December 18, 2013

(I tend to check my bank balance frequently. One day I see that I have a $10,000 deposit to my account! It is clearly a mistake. I call the bank.)

Bank: “Yes, I can see the deposit. It’s been made in the bank with a handwritten deposit slip. The person must have written down the wrong account number.”

Me: “But I have an ‘ATM only’ bank account. I haven’t been inside the bank. I couldn’t have made that mistake.”

Bank: “Leave it with me. I will straighten it out.”

(When I got my bank statement, I see that they had charged me $3 for making a ‘non-ATM’ deposit! That’s the ‘thanks’ I got for returning the $10,000!)
