A Chicago resident, Robert Adams, found a bag outside an ATM this week. When he opened it, he was surprised to find $17,000 in cash inside. But what was more shocking is that he turned it in to police.
During these tough economic times, many are wondering if he is smart or crazy for being so honest. Turns out a forgetful security guard forgot the bag outside of his armored truck, while servicing an ATM machine. It is still unknown if Adams will even get a reward for turning it in.
Well, I congratulate him for being honest, but it makes me wonder what I would do if it happened to me. Still not sure my first call would be to the police, maybe a store to see if the sale was still going on! What would you do if you found $17,000 in unmarked bills? Turn it in or keep it? Weigh in and let’s see how honest most people would be in this situation.
