Taxi Driver Returns Passenger's ($510K) N80million

An Austrian bus driver made an unexpected
discovery in the back of his bus: a bag containing
390,000 euros (nearly $510,000). Did he take the money and head for the border?
Nope. Proving himself a very good guy (and likely
earning some good karma in the process), the
driver, identified only as Wolfgang P., resisted
temptation and turned in the huge payday to the
local police. It turns out the bag of cash belonged to an elderly woman who had recently withdrawn
her life savings. “At first I thought it was somebody’s shopping or
medication,” Wolfgang said. The woman has yet to
reach out about a reward. One would think a person carrying that amount of
cash might spring for a cab, not that these sorts of
things don’t happen in taxis, too. There are
numerous stories of bus or taxi drivers proving
themselves honest in the extreme. Earlier this year,
Las Vegas cabbie Adam Woldemarim found a laptop case stuffed with $221,510. Woldemarim
turned in the epic find to his company’s security
office. The owner returned to the cab office and
rewarded Woldemarim with a $2,000 tip. And last month in Singapore, a cab driver found a
bag with over $900,000. The cab driver, interviewed
by a newspaper, said he never considered keeping
the cash. “The money is unimportant to me. It
doesn’t belong to me, so how can I use it?” he
asked. He did get an “undisclosed cash reward” from the grateful owners.
