Picture this, as you’re walking out of a store, you suddenly spot an envelope full of money on the ground. The envelope is filled with a grand total of $13,000 dollars. How would you react? What would you do?
Today, you’re going to see a man who found himself in this very position. While many people might be tempted to take the money, he didn’t even need to think about his next move. The man knew he had to do what was right.
Take a look below to see his incredible story.
I once found a large sum of money in a envelope laying on the ground in a store parking lot. I went to the police and told them, I would not tell them how much or what it was in. I just left my name and number and said if they have somebody come in and tell me how much and some other ways to identify it I would give it to them.
I knew in my heart that this money was very important to someone. While I believe 99% of police officers are good people, I didn’t want one of the bad 1% to come along and snatch the money. My heart would break if I got the call that the money has somehow “mysteriously disappeared” from the station.
The police basically tried to take it from me and I wouldn’t give it to them. After about 3 weeks of no phone calls from the police, I ran an add in a local newspaper and the first day I got at least 25-30 different phone calls and you wouldn’t believe the scam artistry and down right belligerence of the people that called me.
The next morning the phone rang at a little after 6 AM, and it was an elderly gentleman who said the amount was $14,500 in a large white business envelope 13k of it was $100 bills the rest was $20’s. He had sold an antique car, met the person in the parking lot of the store I found it in, and didn’t know how he lost it. He was going to give the money to his grand daughter for college. I am glad I didn’t give it to the police because I know it would have never made it back to him.
He offered me a reward and I respectfully refused because I don’t expect to be paid for doing the right thing.
Pass on the smiles. Share this story with your friends and family.
