Woman Tracks Down Stranger On Facebook To Pay Her Back £520 She Accidentally Sent

A woman has been hailed a hero after tracking down the woman who accidentally sent her £520 ($720) in and giving it back.

Leah Taylor, from the West Midlands, said she was trying to send some money from her savings account to another when she 'stupidly' sent it to that of a stranger.

But her 'faith in humanity' was quickly restored when Denbi Rickerby, from Wolverhampton, managed to find her on Facebook and return the cash, which Leah had been saving to fix her car.

Sharing the tale to her page, Leah, 33, thanked Denbi, 28, for tracking her down and doing the right thing, posting a portion of their conversation.
