    Hehe.
    I picked the second option, if that failed, then yeah, I would keep it. ;)

    This actually kind of happened to me. I was working at a yard sale and a woman found a wallet on the table and wanted to buy it. I was all ready to sell it to her, and she opened it up to see how many card spaces it had. It was full of money, cheques and credit cards! It turned out that a woman had bought something, put down her wallet for a second, and forgot to pick it up. We found her phone number inside, phoned her up and she got it back. Happy ending :)

    I highly doubt that all of the people that put the second option would actually do it. I think they would probably take a little money. I would actually find out if i know the person, and if I liked them than I would give it back, or if I didn't know them i would give it back, but if i didn't like them, total shopping spree.

    I'd take a few bucks for a "finder's fee" and return the wallet but not in person.

    If someone is stupid enough to drop their MONEY, their CREDIT CARDS, their ID on the GROUND where ANYONE can pick it up...





    I'm not going to reward them ;)

    I voted for "You look through it for a phone number and call up the owner"

    Of course, I could go with the wallet to a police station, but I am not sure what the result would be. :)

    I'd take the money but leave the credit cards in the wallet and put it back where I found it

    It would be hard to take the money or run up hte credit cards. I know what it would feel like and would not want it down to me. Hopefully, I could touch someone else and they would do the same if it happened to them

    I also would look through it and see if I could find a phone number, and if that failed I'd probably take it to a police station...

    Take the money and then throw the wallet back to the person I just mugged. [face_shocked]

    Seriously I'd probably just leave it, with liability and people keen on sueing each other. :(

    I've found wallets before and always look for a phone number for the person. If I couldn't find one I'd turn it in to the Police.

    Try to find the phone number and call the person.

    Of course, I'll expect a HUGE reward. :D

    I would look through the wallet for an address, then send it to that address, but I might just take some money out. [face_mischief]

    I look through to try and identify the owner. If I succeed I give the wallet back. If I can't find out who the owner is I'd probably take the money.

    I would look through it and try to find a number to call and track down the owner. If that does not work, I would turn it into the Police, I belive there is a rule that if no one claims it in 30, you can keep it.

    Run like hell, because someone's probably filming you.
