Bank Error in My Favor

I ended up with a bit of money in my bank account the other day. I definitely did not put it there. I checked online and once deposit form was scanned I could see it was meant to be a cash deposit for someone named "Rocco." The teller had put it in the wrong account. I considered withdrawing it skipping the country, but the amount was too small to get me even into the next state let alone in Mexico where I could cool my heels for a while. So I told a teller at the bank what happened, and he said, "I don't know where it came from, or who they were trying to get it to. Just don't spend it. There's nothing we can do right now. I'm sure this guy will eventually come looking for the money." Oh? I hope they don't give him my address. Besides, I told the teller that I thought the name "Rocco" on the deposit slip looked like a pretty good clue to begin his investigation. I can't imagine how angry I'd be if I were on the other side of this and my cash was missing. I could probably find the guy who lost his money by hanging out in the bank for a while and waiting until someone comes in to scream at the tellers.
