If there is a way to identify the owner I'd give it back.  If it were just money left in a plain paper bag on the street with no identification or an no way to tell who's it was I'd keep it.

We have found a few wallets in the road before, one once had over $100 in it.  However, they all had IDs, so we found their address and returned them.  Most people are very grateful because either a) They didn't realize they lost it or b) They had credit cards in there and were in the process of having them all stopped/blocked.  There was one guy, though, who didn't even say thanks and was kind of mean.

I'd like to think that if I found money in a bag, box, or what not, and there really was no way of even remotely linking someone to it, I'd still take it to the police.  But, it might be very tempting to keep it.

I think that if I found money that I would look for the rightful owner as I would want someone to do the same for me.  But, it would be tempting.

I believe i would give it back if there was a way. if it was just a random ill i would probably keep it. But this one time in school i lost a $10 bill and it was for a field trip and i was worried. But some kid turned it in to the teacher so i was able to go on the field trip. :) I think it all depends on the situation

If it there were any clue as to the owner, I would promptly return it. If not, I'd keep it.

I'd try to figure out whose it is on my own, not involving the police or anything because the police force where I live stinks. After a couple months I might just keep it.  ;D

The right thing to do will be, First I would found out who the money belongs too (it is depending on how much money was lost), and then if no one claims it for a long period of time I guess it will be safe to have.

Well, it's gonna be a tough decision since I am so broken now.
But I think I will still do the right things~~ Maybe I will earn some "big" reward instead?!

I'd probably try to find the owner myself and if I couldn't, I'd turn the money over to the police.

If it was a wallet, I'd mail it back to the person WITHOUT the cash. (My reward)

if it were possible to find who it belonged to i would give it back. if its just a wad of cash in the middle of an empty street where it could be anyone's...id take it.

I would give it back if I know who is the owner was.  Because maybe they need it for their daily life.  Otherwise I would keep it.  :)
