$10,000,000,000 has appeared in your bank account (having logged in online). You're of course shocked and don't believe it. That is, until you withdraw $300 from the ATM (your balance had actually been $5 available).
You being a good citizen, quickly alert your bank and an investigation is begun.You of course make local, national and international news - even more so, because, the investigation being completed, the bank and government investigators conclude that the money is literally "from nowhere", yet it is real and liquid. It is untraceable and it cannot be found where it has come from and it has been found to not have been a computer glitch or a malfunction. It is literally baffling and shocking - but real and liquid.
With that in mind, will you be allowed to keep it? Surely it's yours? Nobody's come to claim it (and has no legitimate claim to it) and it's not a computer glitch and it hasn't been transferred from anywhere...
What do you think?
