    Found a purse with a wad of money

    I'd like to say it was found while detecting, but I've been too busy to get out in quite a while. Driving to one of my stops, I spotted what looked like a camera case in the middle of the road. I swung around thinking it could be something important to someone. I bet it is. Every credit card, store cards, license, SS#, Birth Cert., a wad of money ($329 + at least a couple dollars in clad) and a few other things. Everything someone would need to steal her identity, and then some. Luckily, she also had a business card that matched her lic. I immediately called the number and left a message at her office. When I got home, I sent an email too. Waiting for a reply, I'm sure she's going nuts wondering where it went. Probably cancelling all her cards. I'll get it back to her ASAP. Her address is only 50-60 minutes away, but her office is only 15 away.

    She's very fortunate you found it and not some undesirable.A couple weeks ago I stopped at a light in the city across the river,I spotted a thick wallet so I jumped out and grabbed it,looking to see who lost it as I drive on a guy pulls up along side me and holds out a badge hanging around his neck..I'm detective so and so and I saw you get that wallet and I have been trying to catch up with you,I asked him if he would see to it that the girl would get it back"not a problem,I'm glad you found it and not one of the street people."A lot of plastic and a wad of cash.

    I applaud you for your honesty and integrity! I am sure she will be elated to get her' purse, money, driver's license and credit cards back! Now go buy a Mega Millions and a Powerball ticket and maybe karma will repay you for your good deed.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    Back in the 80's I located two "losers" and returned their items, zero thanks whatsoever, the first guy said he thought he'd lost it, grabbed it out of my hand and booked - didn't even thank me.

    A couple weeks ago now I returned a 64 year old engraved bracelet tab. The son of the loser contacted me back and thanked me for it, said he'd give it to his Dad, over a week ago. No feedback.

    You know, sometimes we gotta get a little bit of thanks for what we do here - the right thing.

    get a photo of the items being returned so y'all can get a well deserved Honorable

    feels good to return lost items, maybe a hug or a "TY" reward for your honesty
