My job just double deposited my check!
    #3210783 - 10/03/04 08:28 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Okay so I checked my bank account and found that I got direct deposited 2 different amounts. I know it's from my job - but now I have a SHITLOAD of cash. It doesn't say who deposited it - but I know for sure it's them. Should I say something or just play completely stupid?? I got a HUGE bill to pay - should I use the money?!

eek! That's a tough one. You could get in beeeeeeeeg trouble- like fired- if they found out, then again you could always play dumb, but that might make them reconsider your position too......

That's a big temptation though!

That happened to me before and I just let it sit there, they realized it a couple days later.

There is no way it will go unnoticed.

yesh, please go ahead and spend that extra cash.

then be sure to come back and make another thread
describing your intense state of self-loathing after you
get fired or find yourself in an even worse debt position.

They'll catch the mistake. They always do.

You'll gain huge brownie points by pointing it out to them before they realize their mistake. On the other hand, the longer you keep quiet about it the worse you'll look when they do finally catch it. Not enough to get fired, no, but enough to lower their opinion of you, which will have long term negative effects for you for as long as you work there and possibly after you leave as well (i.e. negative recommendations when new prospective employers call to check you out).

Conclusion -- big upside for telling them, medium to large downside for keeping quiet. This decision is a no-brainer. Tell them ASAP.

well see - it's a little company that doesn't have a good accounting person.

not to mention - when i look at my transfers - it doesn't say WHO deposited. i could say i thought it was from my ebay sales and half.com sales (they do the same type of depositing).

it's just a shitty lil snowboard shop - nothing major. im just gonna play dumb and hope i get extra cash from it.

Del, if I were you, I wouldn't tell them right off either.  Let them figure it out themselves.  I'm sure you've probably earned it :wink: anyway and as long as it's not going to eat at your concious (it wouldn't mine considering where I work and what they pay) then just wait for a while to see if they realize.

If they do catch it, just say that there was no way you could determine they deposited the money because the name wasn't on the list of transfers, and you had just sold a lot of stuff on ebay.

Everyone who's saying they will think highly of you... eh, they might.  My boss, he'd tell me he's happy to my face, but probably call me a sucker behind my back.. but you know your boss best I'm sure.  Even if they do think highly of you for it, will you get anything for it?  Will this help you get a promotion?  Probably not.  Will it be bad if they could catch you red handed?  Yea, but they can't since you can't even know for 100% that it was them. :wink:

Every cute girl deserves a few more bucks for her hard work than she's actually being paid. :wink: :lol:

Hope I helped!

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

thanks - i agree. it's just a place to work for cash (we DONT get paid well - infact I took a $2/hr loss when i switched jobs just so i could stay in NY for school). i've worked at this place for 3 years - it's laid back and no one gives a shit.

there will never be a promotion in that place - my friend has been there for 8 seasons and has been stuck in the same position. the place is too small for a promotion.
