whose to say what the "right" thing is? Perhaps it was drug money that was dropped inadvertently, and giving it to the rightful owners would be a crime. I say, right place, right time.


maybe it was ransom money.

the dad dropped it on the way to the warehouse to get his son. he showed up without the money and the badguys killed him and his son.

I would call the news and have let them know so they can mention it on the nightly news and to reach me at an email address. I wouldn't even mention to them WHERE I found it, becuase with such things, people will flock at the opportunity of free money, plus I'd use it as verification. Of course, I'd keep it in my safe until the rightful owner has been found.

 

If unclaimed within 30 days, it becomes my money.

 

I wouldn't take the money to the police. Some precints don't bother making paperwork for it and they'll use it for "official police business".

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.

If there was no info on the envelope I would have tooken it and walked away. If it had an adress or a name I would have given it back to the true owner.

I would pull off a nice VACATION to a place that is very dangerous, awesome, and "EYE-OPENING"! And also have a great time, I would also post a Craigslist advertisement saying "FOUND 5K AND OWNER NOT FOUND, PLEASE CLAIM THIS MONEY" and see how many psychos fight HAND OVER FIST for this awesome cash.

I would hold onto it and contact the local police to see if anyone was looking for an envelope of cash they lost. If yes I would ask the "owner" to verify the total dollar amount and give it to them if they seemed to be legit.    

When I was younger, about 6, I was in the grocery store with my mom and I found 100 bucks on the floor.  She took me to the service desk and we asked the manager if anyone claimed to have lost money.  When we asked there was a lady who had just come up to the desk a min or two before us whom said she lost a 100 bill and asked if anyone turned it in.  I got to hand her the money and I still remember how grateful and happy she was about it all.

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.

 



Of course somebody would claim it... definatly not the right owner though :smileyindifferent:

Re: Integrity test

OK, so taking a few things into account.

 

If it were at work, or a place I have connections to, I would turn it in there.

 

This being said, if it is on the street, or on some random floor, it is mine.  Yes, I said it it.

 

I think of it as Karma in a sense.  If I were to drop that amount of cash, the odds of it ever being returned to me are 0.001% chance.  Therefore, I see is as Karma that will be paid back or has been paid back for something that has or will happen to me of equal loss.  I am willing to accept the "charges", for the gain of 5 to 10 $K.

 

I would have no shame in it either.  Again, I stipulate, if I found it in the presence of someone I knew, or in a place I have a connection to, then I would turn it in there.  I am certainly not turning "strange" money into the Police.  They get enough.:smileywink:

Re: Integrity test

heres my point of view:

if i were to lose money, i would want somebody to return it to me ASAP

but if i found money the last thing on my mind is returning it i think of ALL the things I can do with it

i know this is the wrong way of thinking though I cant expect someone to return my money if i wont retur theirs

Without a second thought, I would drop it off at the police station.

I could never keep something that wasn't mine, my conscience wouldn't allow it.

The cops would just split the money... better off making a donation somewhere you know someone can use the money such as kids . but whatever its your decision
