    WHY COULDN'T THIS HAPPEN TO ME? Janitor gets to KEEP gold bars in trash can?

    I can't believe it would be this much gold worth that much! I think some numbers are off but either way, lucky for the janitor!

    I certainly would have put them in my car, QUIT work, and got out of dodge! Or should I say Korea!

    Might be allowed to keep it; see this is why I rarely ever post finds and when I do it is nothing serious.

    So he might get to keep it; mean while higher up in the government they have already figured out that he is only a janitor and used to living poor, but can not come right out and say that, so they are doing their best to wash or create some hogwash so they can keep it. This way when that happens and they spend it, they get to sit back and laugh about the janitors integrity and how the janitor bought the hogwash and wash happy with making the news.

    Finders Keepers laws in the country, might allow him some of the money, if it is not connected to a crime, that is...!
    ....but, don't you feel that the gold was part of a crime?
    ....or, if was part of some kidnap ransom, but the gold was dumped, so the hostage got blown away...?!

    Cheffer, that is what I was thinking when I read it then I saw it mentioned 7 gold bars! Must be some really ancient gold bars or someone's math is really way off!!

    It COULD happen to you, as long as you believe it can.

    BTW I think the janitor would have been "luckier" if he had just kept quiet about his find.

    I was living in Miami many years ago when there was a story in the local paper about how one morning a man found a large sack of cash in his front yard. This was well before Miami became a drug capital.
    People mocked him for turning it over to the cops. He said well, whoever lost it is going to come looking for it. And when they knock on my front door to ask about it, I want to show them the front page of the paper with the photo showing I don't have it anymore.

    I think he had a point.

    Good luck to all,

    "not connected to a crime"

    My guess is he wont see money or gold from the find.

    Who throws their gold in the trash if its legit?

    What if the "wrong" person recovered the gold bars? Not every crime is well planned.

    Roughly $3,638,320 in US dollars at current spot if these are 400 Troy ounce bars times seven bars...2800 Troy ounces is no where near the recorded amount of $325 million...not even possible for one man to move without a lot of help
