My Dilema.

last night while being out with the girlfriend and some friends i spotted a wallet from a block away, don't ask how i just have a sixth sense for knowing where the money is

so there's 160 bucks in it, 2 credit cards, what may be the pin # written on a piece of paper and the dude's state ID. Im trying to contact this guy so i can return his belongings cause i just don't wanna mail it to some address not knowing if he lives there still or not. Anyone here know how i could get a hold of him with his state ID and credit cards?

Contact the PD in that area... From what I have heard if nobody claims it within 60 days, it's yours. Or you could just sell the credit cards to some crackheads for $20 each and make $200 the easy way.

I'd say contact the credit card companies through the numbers on the back then... They will probably request the cards back... Maybe send the guy a letter to his address. Address it to his name, but don't put any other information in it. If he can respond correctly with the following answers, give it to him:

What are the credit card numbers?
Stats from his ID.
How much money was in the wallet?
What else was in it?

your best bet would probably be to send the guy a letter. Or you can just go to the address and give it back (his state ID has a picture on it so you can tell if it's the guy or not)

I did this one time. Got a dudes wallet off the street. He had left it on the roof of his car when he was gasing up... drove off and it fell off. I stopped and picked it up. Found his name in the phone book and called.

The guy was MAJORLY happy. I even dropped it off at his house!

You rock GM, most jackasses would just take the $160 a toss out the rest. More reps when I can.

Well for me I don't think there was that much cash in it. I had to get online to find the guy as well as mapquesting his address. He tried to pay me but I refused. Its Karma and I'm all about it. Do to others as you would want done to you. Its one of my principals that I live life with. Well... I need more help when I'm driving...

I'd totally take it... of course, as I already stated, if it had cash in it...

I tell you the internet can be a very powerful tool if you use it right. I did some searching and tracked down the dude's adress [or atleast what i thought was his adress] and spoke to some lady who told me he had moved and he doesnt live there anymore but he still receives his mail there. So i left my number with her and told her as soon as she speaks to the man to give him my number and have him call me. She's calling her husband now to get this gentleman's number so she can tell him to call me.


Turns out the man lives here in queens no not in L.I there for who knows what would've happen if i had mailed it to the adress on the ID!

I tell you if this doesnt earn me some MAJOR brownie points with someone up in heaven so i can get my bike and my stuff i dont know what would!

you deserve something for being an honest person and not just keeping the wallet and money for yourself.

there are few of us anymore who would find the owner of a wallet and return it to them with everything in it anymore.

yeah man its a shame. I've had a couple people ask me "so what are u gonna do with it?" and get surprised when i tell'em "well ive gotta find the guy and return it" i mean really why would you keep something that isnt yours? take a second and put yourself in that person's shoes.

If i was in your shoes i would have taken out 20 bucks and gave him backeverything else and told him im sure you didnt mind i took 20 out to pay for gas and etc...


It would be a different story if i found a brown lunch bag filled with cash tho.
