    It's just not fare! Boston cabbie who turned in $187,000 CASH left behind by passenger says he's 'disappointed' by $100 reward

    The honest cab driver who returned $187,000 in cash left on his backseat is a little disappointed at only receiving a $100 reward.
    Raymond MacCausland, 72, was shocked to discover his passenger left a bag filled with bundles of $50 and $100 bills in the car after he dropped him off at a hotel.
    The rider who claimed to be homeless said he would be right back but after 30 minutes of waiting, MacCausland looked in the bag to look for his ID.
    'I thought maybe he would give $500 or $1,000, maybe one of those bundles,' the taxi driver told the New York Daily News after turning the money into the police.

    The honest cab driver who returned $187,000 in cash (pictured) left on his backseat got only $100 as a reward from its rightful owner

    He added: 'I’ve never seen money like that before. It was quite a sight when they dumped it on the table.'
    MacCausland, who has been working as a cabbie for 50 years, said the man inherited the cash after living in a homeless shelter for six months.
    He was relieved when police discovered the inheritance paperwork, adding: 'I know if it wasn't they'd come looking for me.'
    The money was returned to the unnamed man after police determined he was the rightful owner.
    'This hackney driver exhibited exemplary behavior and his honest deed should be recognized,' Police Commissioner William Evans said in a statement.
    After reuniting the man with his money, and driving him back to the hotel from the police station, he was rewarded with just $100.

    MacCausland, who has been working as a cabbie for 50 years (file photo of his employers Independent Taxi Operators Association), said the passenger inherited the cash
    Honest to the end, the cabbie even admitted to hoping the man would forget his money for a second time.
    This was not the first time MacCausland has been inadequately rewarded for his honesty. He once he returned a briefcase filled with $10,000 to its owner who gave him nothing as a reward.
    About 30 years ago, MacCausland had a similar situation, finding a briefcase with about $10,000 inside at the airport. That man who lost it didn’t give him any reward.

    The money's owner, Saul Rosenberg, doesn't understand what all the fuss is about.

    A classier move would have been to give him a 1000 bucks. But if the guy never had money before I can see how he thinks a hundred is enough.

    He did the right thing, he would have been thrown in jail for theft if he kept it.

    I thought if you turned it in you were eligible for a portion of the reward.

    He should have been given at least $1k by the Jewish fellow

    Some newscaster said he would have turned the $50k he found into the police

    As long as there was no camera in the taxi I would have kept the cash and said nothing.

    Hide the cash somewhere safe for a few months and if no one ever came back to you looking for it then slowly launder it.

    If the guy did come back just deny it and say he must have lost it somewhere else.

    He gave it back knowing the guy forgot it in the cab. If it was mob money he knew he was gonna get a beating. Take the _C note and be happy. Ya beat the guy already on the price of the ride

    Did he really think a member of The Tribe was going to part with any of the cash and give him a decent reward?

    By "trickle down" I think you mean the bum pissing out Wild Irish Rose in an alley somewhere.
