I have seen many questions like:
My question is: what happens if you receive this money (without doing anything or giving your bank account number) but do not do anything scammer wants?
I especially want to know about what happens with the money you got and possible legal consequences.
- Is it considered yours because scammer transfered it to you?
- Do you have to return it? If yes, to whom and in what form?
- And finally, how is it that scammers are just sending money to random people? Aren't they scared that someone will simply not return it? I understand that this may be stolen money, but it surely took some effort (cash/time) to "acquire" it, so why are they just sending it away?
