    I actually found a wallet on the sidewalk today. I put it in the owners' mailbox and left him a message saying that I had.

    I'd try to find the owner. Failing that, I'd keep the money. [face_mischief]

    wallet, bah. I once got a letter in the mail for somebody else saying that they had been turned down for a job. I spent a month and a half trying to track down that person, no luck. Finally just sent it to my adress, one number difference, in the next neighborhood over, b/c I heard that it boarded people during the school year.

    haven't heard anything back at all from this. so I'd just leave the wallet there.

    I'd look for the owner (not for very long though). When I don't find him or her, I'd destroy the credit cards and keep the money.

    "You found my wallet? Wow, thank you very much. Now give it back."

    Give what back?

    Actually you should be careful when returning someone's wallet. As good as your intentions might be, the owner may take advantage of you and say that there was more money in it or some credit cards are missing and then hold you accountable. IMO it's best to leave it lying.

    Well, I would look for the number first and then if I can't find one I would take it to the police.

    I sent a wallet back to someone through the mail once (they lived about an hour away), but the money was already missing. So the guy probably thinks it was me that stole it.

    Oh well, I don't care much.

    I'd try to find the owner. I think that he/she would be glad that some honest person brought it back to him/her. If he/she try to get more money from me, it would suck.

    I'd look for the telephone number and call the owner, but if it wasn't possible, I'd take it to a police station and report it missing.

    You forgot to post "dump out all those green peices of paper with pictures of presidents and numbers in the corners and take the wallet for yourself."

    I'd take the money and return the wallet with a note:


    Dear Sir or Madman,
    I found this wallet and I found ur address, so here it is, don't ask any questions. This is the way I found it. Oh and yes I borrowed some stuff like a couple of hundred dollars. I am sorry if you are angry, but I was hungry and needed some new shoes. If you like some shoes for yourself just send some money to me at.... wait if I tell you my address you would kill me. OK then you can just leave the money at JC Shopping Mall Center at the North Bound under the cafe table 5 and leave because I know who you are. The truth is out there. Oh I almost forgot I also borrowed ur VISA and don't try calling the credit card company telling ur stupid story because I already used at 3 Shopping centers. If you like hear my shopping list press 1, if you would like this message repeated press 2......

    Good luck Mr. I dropped my wallet.

    OB1 :cool: :D
