    the problem with returning cash is that the person you return it to, invariably claims there was 2x as much and you stole half. keep the money, burn the wallet and other contents. tell no one. do random acts of kindness.

    I was riding along the riverbed and I found a purse. I called the the owner and not only did she accuse me of being the one who stole it. She went nuts and was screaming she was gonna call the cops. I just hung up. I was about 14.

    And I was at the beach and watch these people's stuff blow down the beach while they were in the water. Like an idiot I ran after their clothes and stuff and when they came back I told them. They accused me of stealing a camera and money..I couldn't believe it and let a lifeguard check all my stuff and my friends stuff. Everybody was pissed at me.

    Keep the cash.

    I'm keeping the cash.
    I will make sure that you get you ID and all of that stuff back because I know what a pain in the ass that is to replace.

    I did find a wallet with $1500 in it in a house I was working on once. I returned everything because I knew the people who were renting the place before who owned the wallet. They had 3 little kids and it was close to Christmas. They were soooo happy to get the cash back. They thought it was gone for good. They offered me a reward but I turned it down.

    It was a Mexican lady who intended to send it back home to her relatives in Mexico. I forgot the details on how she lost it.

    I voted keep the cash and Mail the purse but when I have been in this position for real in my life I gave it all back. After giving it back I beat myself up for giving it all back though to be honest . For example I found a purse after a movie and gave it to the office . While driving home I thought what makes you think the fucks in the office didn't keep the cash ? Then I beat myself up for doing the right thing .

    people suck. i return goods i find, like around this season i always find cameras and cellphones in taxis because the tourists lose them. Those i return (I make my employer pay for fedex. They need to do something altruistic occasionally, even if they never know about it), but cash i would never return because people get weird about it. I would rather stuff it in a collection box, burn it or donate it to a charity, but once people lose cash as far as i am concerned it is no longer theirs because i refuse to suffer their insanity over it.

    I was bike riding in the park this summer and found a wallet sitting on a bench when I stopped to rest. This thing was packed was credit cards and the owners foreign ID. Seems like he was a tourist. It also had $600 in cash. I was with my daughter so we both went through the wallet and found a phone number. I called the number and a woman with a thick Spanish accent answered. I know some Spanish so I told her I found the wallet and to tell the owner to come back to the park ASAP to pick it up. She thanked me and took my phone number. About 5 minutes later the owner called and we arraigned to meet. We met up and he was a really nice guy. He thanked me a million times and teared up a bit because of his nerves and the relief. He took all the money out and offered it to me but I refused. I told him to just relax and enjoy his time in the US. He thanked me again and told my daughter that I was a good person. He forced a $50 bill in my daughters hand and said that lunch was on him. It felt good helping that guy out. It's something you don't forget.
