When "Bank Error" may hurt you

The bank credits your account for $1,000 more than you deposited. For once you've pulled that sweet Monopoly card in real life, "Bank error in your favor." Ka-ching!

Despite the overwhelming justification for why the universe owes you this money, it's as untouchable as a spanking-new sports car with the keys in the ignition and the doors wide open. Give in to temptation and you could find yourself going straight to jail -- or at least being threatened with jail if you don't want to part with the ill-gotten gains.
