Today I was expecting my redundancy pay, something in the region of £7.5k. I logged into mobile banking (I was at Gatwick Airport at the time, on my way into London so that the boss could sign my redundancy mortgage insurance claim!) and at first thought I had only been paid about £2300. I was incensed ready to kick off. Then I noticed the extra nought. My balance was showing £23k!
I have to say my first thought was to buy a ticket somewhere exotic.
It seems that everyone in the company got paid three times today. Now of course I am legally obliged to give it back, but considering they just made me redundant, the mechanism is a little less clear and why would I make life easy for them?
So here's the question. What can I do with it temporarily in order to make the most of it while I wait for the bank to ask for it back?
