Please don't judge us with this, we are desperate for money so want to know if there's a loop hole with all this.
My mom logged onto her and her partner's bank account and there was a cheque pending in there for £9942.00. They phoned the bank and they said it was paid in in Clapham Junction in my step-dad's name (her partner).
The fraud team is onto it now and looking for who deposited it etc. We're wondering if they're allowed to keep it once it's cleared. Normally we would be like pay it back but money is so tight at the moment it's unbelievable.
So I'm just wondering if this has happened to anyone else, knows what it could be (fraud-wise) and if there are any loop holes.
Thanks in advance.
