Ferret, I know some heartless people that would find a wallet with that much money and just take the money and dump the wallet. It's very sad that they have no heart and would consider theft (technically theft because your contact details would be in there).

If I found a wallet with that much cash I'd give it all back in one piece, that would be so dog to take it.

It's funny you mention that.... I remember reading about a study that a couple of uni students did where they'd "lose" a wallet with $50, never to see it again. BUT then they'd lose one with $500 and it would be turned in to police.

Some people (read SOME) see the larger amount and get paranoid about it being drug money or the like haha

I think it would be more a case of people feeling guilty about taking $500 away from someone..

That, plus the whole "meh there's only $20 here, not even worth the effort of tracking someone down" factor. $900 is a bit more worth the effort, and more likely to garner a reward in favour.

Yeah Todd, was gonna ask whether that was the reason they gave in the study or not. Still very interesting though, psychological factors in play.

They gave several reasons why people handed back the larger sums of money... most came back to either feeling guilty/sorry for the person who lost it, fear of it being crime money and being tracked down or just good old fashioned human kindness

If I found a wallet with 900$ I would take the cash and throw the wallet in the bin.

Id probably look at the guys license, if he looked like a hard cunt or something, id do the same. Otherwise, i dunno what i would do. It would pay a large part of my plane ticket to go see maiden, i would probably just take it thinking it was karma. Depends on the situation tho.

I couldn't possibly take that much money. If it were 100 dollars i probably would but I wouldn't sleep at night knowing I took someone else's money.

Ive got passed both before, you get back to the start of the course again I wanted a trophy dammit. I think from memory of about, shit 7 years ago or so. You can press F on your keyboard which makes you go faster. When he is chasing you keep pressing pause on and off so you can see what is a head of you and dodge it. Good luck, Arrrgghhh I feel so nerdy now

I couldn't take $2 out of a wallet. I'm against all forms of theft. And karma? The only karma you would recieve from taking someones cash out of their wallet is bad karma, and I'm sure in the same form too.

I agree with you. ^ I would contemplate it, knowing myself, but in the end i seriously couldn't take any amount of money off someone without their permission. I would feel so bloody guilty. I just put myself in their shoes, and i wouldn't want anyone taking my money. Do one to others as you would like them to do unto you.
