If you found an envelope with ten $100 bills inside
no identification of any kind and no...apparent owner, what would you do? keep it, turn it over to the police or what?
I wish I could say I would give this envelop to the owner. But, if there is no owner i would hold onto it and see it as a gift from God. Really. But, if I know who lost it-I would absolutely give it back.
it does depend alot on where i find it. at work i would turn it in. in front of my house i would ask my neighbors, friends, and relatives if they lost anything (without details)
at the bank i would ask the bank manager to contact me if anyone came by and said they lost somthing (still without the amount so i can verify the truth of the situation)
on the street in a populated area i would count the money then my blessings and enjoy it.
This actually happened where I work about a year ago. I told the people I work for about it (without telling the amount or specifics) and posted a message for several weeks in our weekly bulletin, "A packet with an undisclosed amount of money was found on the property and if the person who lost it can describe the packet and the amount of money that was found it will be returned"
No one claimed it, so 3 months later, I ended up with a much needed bonus (which really WAS needed due to a $12,000 drop in sales commissions last year...)
Rent, electricity and phone is paid. Cigarettes, Groceries and keep the rest of it in a bank, away from the alcoholic
I'd try to find the owner in the same way you did. Just three weeks ago I found a $100 bill on the floor of a Baja Fresh, of all places. I easily could have pocketed it but I found the owner and returned it.
that,s a difficult one,with no owner,no identification well well well...if turned in to the police they just cnt search for the owner without any identification...i,ll rather keep it...
I think its bad karma to benefit from someone else's loss. I would turn the money over to the police in the town where it was found. If it becomes unclaimed property I would donate it to the nearest homeless shelter and place an ad in the paper detailing the amount and how it was dispursed.
I once removed a heafty stuck deposit bag from the night drop of a bank and promptly deposited it back in the box, no one ever knew.
I found a huge roll of cash behind someones glove box while doing a heater core job. Turns out it was 5 grand and the car owner guessed it belonged to the previous owner.
It sounds hokey but I do belive what comes around goes around.
Five years ago I sold two cars for cash and was on the way to the bank to deposit the money. I broke my own rule by stopping at the car wash on the way to the bank. I got out of the car to grab a coffee while there. You can guess when I got to the bank I could not find my bank bag. I was in a complete panic. I called the cops who interviewed all the workers at the car wash gas station, no one saw any bank bag. That evening I get a call from someone asking me to meet them in a parking lot at a nearby shopping center to return the lost bag. Some scruffy looking biker type gets out of a ratty old pickup with paint and ladders all over it. He would not take a reward and just split as soon as he handed me the bag.
I opened the bag in the car and all 16 thousand dollars and all the checks were present.
I can't begin to describe my relief.
Try to find the owner but even after lots of efforts he/she cant be found then I would probably donate it to some charity or give away to anyone who is in need. I dont want to keep money that aint mine.
I will keep it, and will give 10-15% in charity and rest will serve for me and my family need, and before and after I will thank God
This is a brilliant question! To be totally honest, I would donate the money. I'm sure knowing me, I would give it to an animal shelter.
As a christian who believes in Jesus Christ. Nothing is impossible for Him. I will go to my room kneel and pray. I will ask for His guidance on what to do with that money. there are many unscrupulous people here in the Philippines or probably turn it over to trusted media people like GMA 7 for announcement.
