thats a really f'ed up story man, theres no right answer to this kind of stuff, to the people who say they wouldnt accept it in the first place, thats total bs, to the people who say what is 1200 to you, tell them to wait a couple of years, and to what to send back, if your a really really nice guy send back the 1200 but dont worry about it if you decide not to (i probably wouldnt)

Good story. The correct thing to do is obviously whatever makes you feel better, if you would feel alot of guilt about this, you may want to send the $1200 back to avoid this. Personally, I would feel comfortable keeping the money.

Yep ^^ what he said - if you accept a gift from someone then that does place you in some level of 'moral debt' to them - here the only way to repay that is to send him back the $1200.

After all it's Xmas - don't be a Scrooge [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

The better alternative of course would have been to refuse the gift and to have cleaned him out legitimately.

Now I don't see any other ethical course, especially as the guy seems to need the $$ far more than you .

wtf? he sent you the money unsolicited, and hasn't asked for it back? transferring it back would be condescending. he said, "Merry Christmas." He intended it as a gift, for reasons unknown but to him. Keep it.

and get some sleep, you f--kin lunatic.

On your next trip to Vegas, put it on a number on the roulette wheel. If you win 35x, ship him back half.

I keep it, $1,200 must not be much to him.

would you bring it up and send back the $1,200 on your own

[/ QUOTE ]

No, just send it.

[ QUOTE ]
wait for someone to suggest it

[/ QUOTE ]

Wtf does it matter if anyone suggests it? In the end, the only ones who care are you and him.

[ QUOTE ]
only send it back if he asks for it?

[/ QUOTE ]

Did he wait for you to ask him?

Stop playing him HU as soon as he transferred the $$$ back. This is stupid.

Having "cleaned him out" (which should not have happened - read above), at least send him back the $1200. I'd feel dirty if that happened to me.

It's not about the money.
