Something like this happened to me years ago. This was in the days when I did my bill payments at an ATM instead of online.

Payday at my old job rolled around. My pay was deposited by direct deposit. After work I went to the ATM on the corner and paid my bills, then looked at the account balance. Instead of the couple of hundred dollars I was expecting, there were over 1400 dollars in the account!

The next day I went to HR and asked what was going on. Turns out they had double-paid a whole bunch of people. They decided that the easiest thing to do was just leave the extra payments there, and announce that the affected people had gotten their next pay two weeks early.

I guess that counts as 'reasonable effort' to address the situation...
