Bank Error in Your Favor


I received a check today that I wasn’t expecting. It wasn’t a huge sum from a dead relative I never met or a distant and financially reckless admirer of Liquid Astronaut; it was from a company where I used to freelance. The check has my name on it, but I have to admit there’s a strong, strong possibility that it was sent to me in error. They might call in a week and ask for their money back, or worse–the person who was supposed to get the money could hunt me down and kill me for sport on his private island. I’m hedging on the morality of cashing a check that wasn’t supposed to go to me. It can’t be illegal, right? I mean, it’s a check that was sent to me with my name on it. I’d be an idiot not to cash it. I think I’ll give them a call tomorrow morning and ask if they meant to send the check to me, and then after they say “no,” I’ll tell them I’ve already cashed it anyway. Now I just need to find one of those all night check cashing places so they can’t call the bank and cancel the check.
