If You Found $7,000, Would You Keep It?
A woman found an envelope full of cash outside Hartsfield-Jackson Airport and turned it over to authorities. Would you have done the same thing? Tell us how you would’ve handled the situation.
A find outside Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport could have made a woman thousands of dollars richer.
WSB TV reported Tuesday that Pamela North Hollowaay found an envelope full of cash outside a parking deck at the airport. The woman, who works at the airport, immediately turned her find over to her supervisor, who then contacted police to pick it up.
It was later discovered that the envelope contained $7,000—all in $100 bills. Authorities handed over that money to a man who was able to identify how the bills had been wrapped and what was written on the envelope that contained them.
Here’s what we’d like your take on: Would you have turned the money over to authorities, or would you have kept it? Would your decision change if this situation were different in some way? And lastly, if you kept the money, how would you spend it?
