If you are working or on your way to work, or just out and about. And, you find a stack of cash from $1000 to $5000 stuff in a envelope, left behind. What would you do??
Keep in mind, the envelope, doesn't have no address or any identifcation on it.
Let's see how many honest people are out there and see who does the right thing.
I would take it to the local police station and check with them every day. A week later, if nobody has claimed it, it would be mine.
My Grandpa found 2K once, folded up in a rubber band and stuffed in a paper bag.
He turned it in and the police and they told him if nobody came to claim it in 7 days, they would let him know.
7 days went by, they called him, and he went down and picked it up. The police even said it was a nice thing to do, but with no way for anyone to prove it was theirs (unless they know the exact amount), and the suspicious way the money was packaged, that the chances of the owner coming to a police station and asking for a missing 2K, were slim to zero.
On me and my Wife's honeymoon we found a woman's wallet with $500 bucks in it. We mailed the wallet to the woman with all her money, cards, and ID. A few weeks later she sent us a $100 dollar reward with a thank you letter.
Trust me, it was tempting to go blow that money on our honeymoon, but all we kept thinking about was "what if it was us?"
Her reward was not expected, but very thoughtful.
