Here is the update~
The money is in my account. The bank told me that I went in and made the deposit and they "never make mistakes" it was me.
Really? So I printed out the deposit slip, from my computer-side bar here, hello? I can do that and see who actually went in, a concept too smart for the folks at the 888 number, anyhow, so I printed out the slip and saw that some poor woman wrote the wrong account number down.
I just went to the bank, in person, and asked them to correct it. I feel so bad for this woman and I hope she is rich and didn't need her rent check to clear!
In any case, I was honest and hopefully Mrs. Kimm will have her money back soon and the bank will actually train their employees. I mean, really? Telling someone to take the money and run? That makes me nervous on many levels.
Also I have to note that all of the customer service reps I got on the phone were men and today I dealt with woman. I am not one of those men haters (in fact I luuuuuuve men, even with all their no so great qualities), but seriously, ALL the men told me to lie and take the money and the women were thanking me for being honest! There is the difference right there.
