What is the ruling on using the money deposited to an account by mistake? The Grand Ayatollah Khamenei’s answer

SHAFAQNA – The Grand Ayatollah Khamenei answered questions about using money deposited to an account by mistake.

Question: About three months ago an amount of money has been deposited to my account, a few times I informed the centre which may have deposited the money by mistake, but have not received any replies. What is my duty toward this money, and what is the ruling on small interest paid for this money?

The Grand Ayatollah Khamenei: Anyhow, you are not allowed to use this money and interest paid to it, and must return it to its owner; unless finding the owner is not possible, in that case you must pay it as Sadaqah on behalf of its owner.
