I got Linden dollars from someone and I don't know why. What do I do?

Question

  • 0

I'd simply ask the giver if they meant to give that to you. If they did, wonderful and thank them for it. If not, then just return it with a gracious smile.

If you have to offline ask or they don't respond after 24 hours, consider it a boon, thank them, by IM and go buy yourself something nice with it.

If you're concerned about taking cash that doesn't belong to you (even though it was in error - some people would say take it and run, but some would say it would be nice if you gave it back) you can look back in your Transaction History (it's in the dropdown menu when you login at secondlife.com) and see who it was who gave you the money.  Send them a notecard inworld explaining the situation and see if they want their money back.  If they don't bother getting back, you can return it or keep it - it's up to you.

easiest solution is to ask the person who gave it to you, if it was a mistake, offer to return it. If you cant recall the name of the person who gave it to you, check your transaction history on this web site, it will show the amount & name of the person who paid it.

As I see it you have three options:

A. Do the happy dance and go on a shopping spree.

B. IM them and ask, "WTF? You game me money?"

C. Return the money assumming it was a mistake.

D. Ask what you should do in the forums.

E. All of the above.

That happens a lot actually, especially in clubs when you are standing near a tip jar or staff member, people click and pay without being sure.  Best option is to simply click the person and pay them back what you received.  If they meant to give it to you, they will let you know. But seriously, who gives lindens away for no reason, and if they are can you im me heir name, I'll go visit them...hehehe
