An immigrant driver in Las Vegas returned a lap top bag that was stuffed with 221,510 dollars in cash, after he found it in the back of his cab.
According to the Las Vegas Journal, Adam Woldemarim, from Ethopia, found the bag while he was cleaning out his cab just before the start of his shift on September 2, Stuff.co.nz reported.
The 42-year-old called up a pal who had driven the taxi earlier that day to ask if it was his - which it wasn't - he then took it to the company's security office and went back to work.
An hour later he was called back to the office and got to meet the owner of the bag, a man who had won the money at the Wynn Casino and was on his way to the airport when he left the bag in the cab.
Woldemarim, who works 12 hours a day for a weekly 350-dollar-wage, was handed a 2000-dollar-reward as a thank you by the owner.
Woldemarim, who lives in the US after winning entry through a government visa lottery, used the money to pay rent and send some to his country Ethiopia.
This honest Ethiopian man returned almost a quarter million dollars to the rightful owners, the question to you is would you have returned it?
