Should I send the money back?

We spent over $2500 to fight to keep our grandson but ended up losing due to someone else's mistakes. Do we keep the money the state sent us for his per dium for the month or send it back? They said we could keep it if we want because they have no way to get it back but is it ethical to keep it even though they goofed up so bad?

  • If you have it in writing from them to keep it then and only then would I keep it - Otherwise, I would send it back. I'd be afraid they would come after me years later wanting the money back plus interest.
