If someone accidentally sent you money to your paypay,would you send it back?what if they sent you more than 100 dollars? I think i may refund the money,but i am not sure that is true,i might be inclined to keep the money,i am not sure if i would be more inclined to keep it if it was a large amount or a small one.Maybe i don't refound if the money is more than 1000 dollar.

I would have to say that I would return the money, because somebody somewhere is going to be coming up short and I sure would never want that to happen to me. If it is over $100, that is a lot of money to come up short of. If someone came up that much short on me, I would be pretty hot under the collar. I think that no matter how big we get in this world, we still have to answer to someone eventually, for the mistakes that we make and I would feel bad if this person got into trouble, because I was not honest and returned the money.

Hello,carryli,if someone send me money to my paypal and i do not know that person,i will send it back as i am afraid of the source of money,may be it is from money laundering and i will be in trouble if i cash the money out.l think the sender will know if they have sent you more than suppose to,they will request you to send back the money at that time,so why not send the money back to them when you realize you have received more at the beginning.

I would definitely refund the money no matter how much it is. I would not feel good if I were to take something that is not mine no matter how good that thing is. You would not want others to take what's yours as well, right?

Yes, you should send it back because you never no when some things like that will happen to you in the future. It is better that you know you have done good rather than refusing to do what is good but your conscience is bothering you always.
