No doubt, I would return it if it had info inside, but if not I would notify the police probably unless I kept it and advertised it, but someone would have to describe everything to me for them to have proof.

My husband had one of those waist bags and had everything in it. Money, credit cards, personal info etc... Well we were at a Wal-Mart and accidently left it in the cart. He blamed me, I blamed him and you know how you get when frustrated. Well all I could do was pray all the way home that a couple nice old ladies would find it and return it. (We had already gone back and it was nowhere to be seen.)

Got home and there was a message on the machine from a little old ladie who was at Wal-Mart with her little old lady friend and I thought, God does answer prayers and now! My husband got directions and gave them a reward for finding it. We also got them each a G.C. for Bob Evans restaurant for a Christmas gift, but never got a thank you, but hey, we got the bag back and were so relieved!

I would also return it. If it had ID in it I'm sure the owner would be releived and perhaps grateful. But what if it was a plain brown paper bag with no obvious markings...?

well it seem most here are better people than most I know or they dont want to be known as a ... well you know.
I have returned wallets and such I have found
and would do it again, reguardless of whats in it
but then you dont know if I am even telling the truth or not, and No I'm not calling anyone here a lier, it's just that I have dealt with all kinds of people, and how much they have usally doesnt matter as to how honest they might be.

I would return it.. makes no difference who the owner is, it's their property, and every effort should be put into bringing it back to the rightful owner..

Sometimes just the GREAT feeling you get from doing something nice is thanks enough. Last Christmas season, I was in a K-Mart store and this much older lady in front of me was buying a comforter set (which I assumed was a Christmas gift for someone) and was counting down the last bit of change in her wallet and was about $.65 short. The look on her face broke my heart, so I handed her a dollar so she wouldn't have to put it back. She handed me back the change, and looked so very appreciative. I left the store feeling wonderful!!!! It was a lousy dollar, for goodness sake -- she looked like I'd handed her a $50 bill. Ever since I saw the movie "Pay It Forward" (very good movie, BTW), I try to make at least one gesture each day to make someone's world a bit better -- it may only be something as simple as a paying a compliment, holding a door open for the person walking in a building right behind me, holding the elevator, small stuff, you know. The older I get, I know I REALLY appreciate little gestures of kindness, so I feel like other people must also.

Just out of curiosity, what dumbass would leave $5000.00 cash in a pocketbook that they could possibly lose?? Seems to me the deserve to sweat for awhile!!! I'd take it to the police but be sure to leave a note in it letting them know how stupid they are!

Return it of course. That is if there is an ID...otherwise I'd give it to the police and wait and pray no one claims it. Ususally that kind of cash in a wallet is illegal $ anyways. What idiot is gonna go to the cops and say did you find all my drug money in that brown wallet

Sooooo tempting to keep it. But...what if someone was watching you? Like a reality TV show showing dishonest people. Worse yet, a drug deal that had not be picked up yet.....

I would really have to think hard about giving the $5000.00 back if it was a very rich, very selfish, mean spirited person.
