Need your advice here. Beginning of the month, I received an amount of $3500 from an Ang Mo who was on my boat trip few months ago. He wrote to me few weeks later and told me it was a mistake and asked me to transfer it back to him.
I have no intention to keep his money, but I am worrying about is there any implication? I don't want to happen one day policemen come to my house for funding terrorist operation!
The way he sent me the bank account number also in a funny way:
My0 very8 large0 cat0 just0 caught6 a9 very1 large5 mouse6, meaning 0800069156.
I want to return the money that is not mine, but don't want to get into trouble.
Any advice, can I lodge a police report first then return the money, in this way if there is any implication, at least I am protected.
This is first time I encountered this.
