What would you do if you found a bag of money?
Let's say you find a bag full of cash..maybe $100,000 or more. Would you call the police? What thoughts would run through your mind?
I would pocket $10,000 and report the rest to the police. That way, if it is claimed, then I will at least have rewarded myself if the owner is unwilling to do so.
I mean, it's not like you can just go to the bank and deposit a random $100,000 and not expect to turn any heads, especially from the IRS.
Can you believe it, that actually happened here when a group of Japanese came to our plant. For some reason they had a brief case full of cash and somehow it fell from their car. The brief case with all the money was turned into the police by a good Samaritan. I think I would have done likewise.
I would've turned it in to the police. I'm not very materialistic, so I wouldn't really be worried about an award.
no i dont call the police. i kept the money with me. and then i donate this money to Ngo who working towards wellbeing of poor in the socity without giving my name i donate money their.
it would depend on where i found the money. i might keep it and look in the papers to see if anyone reported it missing. if not, i would keep it and use it for something worth while.
I'd donate 10% and pocket the rest... There is a saying in Spanish Ladron que roba ladron tiene cien años de perdon... That means a person that steals from a person that steals is pardoned for a hundred years... I'm in my 30's so that's more than enough time haha Besides I'm dead broke...
if your really really really in need of money, spend it and call the police when you have it back
Yes, I would do so quickly. I would argue with myself, repeatedly assuring myself that it's the right thing to do. Period.
If I thought the person that lost the money would get it back, of course, I would give it back. If someone else was to get the money, why should they get the money when I found it. I remember an episode of Andy Griffith. Opie found some money, told his dad (the sheriff) and if no one claimed it with in so many hours, then Opie could keep the money. Do you think that's the way it works today?
We found some money at Walmart, took it to the customer service, they took it and that was it. Wonder who ended up with that money?
I would hesitate for a moment to daydream, take a few pictures for my scrapbook, then drive slowly to the police station while I rethink my decision to turn the money in. I know it is the right thing to do. Plus, if no one claims it after a while, there is a posibility that the money could end up in my hands after all. In that case, I would tithe 10% to my church, give 10% to a charity that feeds and supports homeless people, place 10% in savings, and enjoy the rest.
This question has a lot of ... it depends on answers for me.
In general, I would try to find the owner. But I couldn't exactly ask someone "hey is this your money" the not so great people would instantly say yes even if it was not. Sometimes though I like to think that people find money when they need it. I always find money in my car or wallet when I'm running low on funds!
I would attempt to find the owner myself, and when that didn't pan out, I'd go ahead and let the police know about it. Good things happen when you do the right thing! I wouldn't look for a reward. That would come knowing I got what might have been someone's life savings back to them!
I really do not know. I would probably need a drink first!
haha , this one is funny . Well i would keep half of it and donate half to charity . This way my conscience too will feel good
Haha funny question first I will not believe to see the bag full of money in my hands....I will not call any Police because i know they will take it in their pockets lol ....so why not I enjoy myself and give to the needy people who needs it.....
My answer may look funny, but I will not touch the bag and will just observe from a distance what the other person do. As soon as he or she lifts the bag I will go there and will ask, 'Is it yours?' If the answer is 'Yes it is mine', I will call police. And the answer is 'No', then I will say, 'Let us give it to police'.
This is just a 'dream answer'. I do not know what I will do if I actually found such a bag....
I would take it cause you do not know if you need it later.

I was listening to two DJs on the radio. They were real clowns. One was "on the street," the other in the studio. The one on the street had a fake $100 bill which he put on the ground in front of a gas station. When people walked out, he'd ask them it the $100 bill...

What would you do if you saw an innocent bystander getting beaten up by 3 thugs in a public place?This is a question I'm asking after the beating that happened at Dodger stadium where hundreds of people just stood and watched this man get beaten for no reason.

I have some new neighbours, a mother and daughter, who shout at each other all day long. Hubby says he has heard slamming doors when he steps out often. I wonder if it will get to a point where we both feel we should do something, call the police or go knock on the door and find out if everything...
