Homeless woman who returned purse with $10,000 rewarded

Postby French Castanut » Nov 9th, 2012, 6:12 pm

CALGARY -- Good karma seems to have found its way back to the humble homeless Calgary woman who turned in a purse containing more than $10,000 in cash

I may be mistaken, but if you have 10,000 (there was $10,400) cash on your persons you need to have a bank draft proving why you have that money. Fintrac, ect. The cop said "he doesn't believe there was anything illegal happening...?

Who carries that kind of cash but drug dealers/black market/blackmailers/ees? I don't know, if I found that money I would have snagged it. I know, I'm terrible.

I would have either figured it was illegal (no problem whatsoever grabbing it) or the person who had it really doesn't value it that much (or money in general) given the circumstances. If that was your last 10,000 dollars, you wouldn't leave it in your purse and forget it.

My bad, the YMCA is going to accept the donation and give it to her.

Given the article is titled "Homeless woman who returned purse with $10,000 rewarded", the Sun fell short on explaining the actual reward given by the person who had the 10k. Other people sent in donations (how much?).

Who cares who donated and how much. Why is it any of our business. Good on the woman for returning the money. In her position I'm sure that some wouldn't.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have of changing others.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes their way.

You are mistaken, both in your interpretation of the law and in your justification for keeping the money.

It's not yours......give it back.....it's simple! :127:

You don't strike me as the type of person who stops to think whether they would like someone to treat them that way.

Where did you get this? If you owned a hot tub store or any business, could it be possible you would have over 10k in cash?

If you walk into your bank and you wish to deposit 10K, the bank will notify the authorities. But to walk around with 10K, you do not need a draft.

Chances are the police checked the owner out and found nothing, which would indicate anything suspicious....

They don't tell you, they fill a form and fax it to the govt.

That's the actual form they have to fill:

I have deposited over 10k before from our shop. I had to show ID and sign a form. This was at RBC. I have found many wallets full of cash over the years and I always return them intact. I would never even entertain the thought of taking something from someone else.
