Drugs are good

So I was checking my online balances because I was worried that some money owed to me hadn't come through when it should have and looked at my balances and saw something odd (an excerpt from a series of similar transactions):

For some reason $41,000 USD had been deposited into my account, $8 in service charges were applied to me, and then about a week later it was all taken out again (although I still had to pay the $8). This is an account that I don't even use except for the occasional wire — current (and typical) balance is $0.85.

Should I be worried? I'm guessing it's just some typical bank screwup… A few years ago we were woken up by a phone call along those lines:

Bank: Hello, this is *** *** Bank calling to let you know that we've just withdrawn $120,000 from your account. It's nothing to be concerned about.

PsyberCity: Wahhhhh.....?

This is back when we were getting started, and we rarely had more than a hundred dollars in the bank, let alone a hundred thousand! Turns out they'd simply accidentally transferred the money into our account earlier that week and just assumed that we knew and hadn't said anything I guess. When I was in highschool a friend had $5000 dropped into their account, but they were stupid and spent it and got themselves in some trouble.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
