Hedge fund manager receives $1.5m from C Suisse in error; the firm wants it back

Hedge Fund

In the board game Monopoly, when the bank makes an error in your favor, the player gets to keep the money. A hedge fund manager is acting as if he has drawn that lucky card for real, a lawsuit against him contends.

The New York Times reports Credit Suisse says it wired a total of $1.5m in three transactions to the hedge fund’s bank account on one day in January.

Two weeks later, according to its lawsuit, the bank realized it had made a mistake: At the time of the wire transfers, the hedge fund, Galbraith Capital Investment Management, was winding down operations and it had no cash left in its account with Credit Suisse.

The bank asked for its money back. It is apparently still waiting.
