    What an honest man, hard to find people like that these days. I honestly don't know what I would do, so I hope I never have to face a situation like that. :)

    Bollocks! What a pity!
    I would have taken the money, doubled the money in Vegas casinos and then return him the original 10K :p

    Sure, why would you take money that is not yours?

    Last year, my wallet dropped off of my lap when I opened my car door to get out. It fell onto the middle of the street, and one of my neighbors that I didnt know at the time found it.

    He hit me up on Facebook asking if I had lost my wallet, and I told him I did. On facebook when I asked him if there was any money in it, he said no, but when he gave it to me, it had my $300 dollars in it.

    I agree honest people are hard to come buy. I ended up giving him a $100 and kept the $200 for myself.

    If you find a wallet, give it back.
    But If you just find a few dollars why not keep em ?
    My wallet (credit-cards, drivers license ect) has more worth for me than the cash inside.

    I found a guys wallet once in the sand. I drove down to the guys house and it had 100 bucks in it. I figured I deserved 20 bucks for my hard work so I took 20 bucks. Kind of felt bad even after that lol

    When I went to Vegas with a mate we stayed at the Bellagio. The safe in his room was shut and the combo wasn't working. He called the desk downstairs and someone came up and after a while they managed to get it open - there was 8k of chips in there!!

    Wish we had opened it - I would of taken a few to go gambling with ;)

    Don't feel bad Dan. After taking so many efforst, it is alright if you take 20 bucks for some burger's and pizzas. Afterall you will have to maintain your calorie count to maintain that svelte figure of yours (avatar)

    $10k in cash is strange, so I think I would keep the money...
    Unless there are the name and phone number of owner on the envelope.

    We 're black hatters. It's one thing to steal traffic, and another to steal money. And I personally think that the guy's phrase says it all: "I felt like a million bucks!"

    You will face a situation like this if you haven't already. Just make up your mind now that you'll be honest and do the right thing...;)

    i will give it back then take god's blessings in-exchange but if it was just a few dollar like i found the other day i will keep it,....i found six dollars the other day when me and my girlfriend was walking back from shoprite our local grocery store of course we kept it because there was just no way to tell who the money belonged too and also it would have a lesser impact to the owner than say? finding $10,000

    anyways god bless that man and hope he wins the lottery some day:D

    Seems that he had no need for the money, because if he did then he would surely not return it.
