Raymond gave the homeless man a ride to a motel. He was then politely asked by the homeless man to wait outside for 5 minutes as he was going inside for a quick errand.
After 30 minutes passed with no sign of the homeless man, Raymond started to worry. He decided to check on the man, but as he approached the front desk of the motel, the employees assured him they never saw a man of his description walk in.
Cab driver who returned $187,000 left behind by passenger says he's 'disappointed' by $100 reward
Puzzled, Raymond went straight to the man's bag - which he had left in the cab - to search for identification. Little did he know he was going to find a lot more than a name and a number.
The bag was filled with cash; 187,000 dollars to be exact.
What do you do with 187,000 dollars in cash?
Raymond did what a lot of us wouldn't.
He notified the Boston police, who were then able to find the homeless man. He had recently been given this money as a recent inheritance and cashed it just before getting in the taxi. He had a receipt to verify his story to the police.
