Whats the most amount of money you've ever found?

Me personally? 13 bucks. Laying in a puddle in a parking lot of a Speedway gas station.


A good friend of mine used to be a maintenance man at an apartment complex that had a lot of tenant's who dealt drugs and what not. on his way into his first apt. of the day, he finds a large wad of money (3650.00) held together by a rubber band in the parking lot. he kept it. He bought me an Xbox and a copy of Halo 2 so I'd play online with him.

Anyone else have any interesting stories about unearned loot?

Re: Whats the most amount of money you've ever found?

I was bartending one night, and this wedding party came in after the reception. The bride left an envelope, which I can only assume was a wedding gift, with $150 in it. I found it on the floor near her table at the end of the night.

I left it behind the bar with a note on it for two weeks in case she decided to reclaim it. She never did, so I took it home.

900.00. Turned it into the police, one year later they gave it to me as no one claimed it.

$120 in the drawer of a dresser I bought at a yard sale. I didn't find it until several months after I bought the dresser and the people who had the sale had moved away. Couldn't track them down, but I've never spent the money.

Re: Whats the most amount of money you've ever found?

I found a clip with credit cards and about $80 in it once, which I turned in. Though judging by the look the cop gave me when I handed him the cash I'm wondering if I should have just kept it -- I don't know if he was just surprised by my honesty, but he was eying the money in such a way that made me wonder if it would ever get back to the person who'd lost it.

Re: Whats the most amount of money you've ever found?

$1000. It was just laying in a cash register!

I kid, I kid.
If I recall correctly, I once found a $10 bill in a grocery store parking lot. There was no one around, so I kept it.

A twenty dollar bill. It was just blowing in the wind across the parking lot. I thought it was trash until it landed on my shoe.

I found a 20 dollar bill just laying in a parking lot. It was a pretty well traveled place on the corner but no one noticed it I guess. It paid for my weekly comic book store visit that week.

Re: Whats the most amount of money you've ever found?

Last one I can remember was I found $10.00 outside the gym on Ft Bragg one morning. Had just finished my PT test so I used to it treat myself to a decent breakfast.

Donate it to charity

Somewhere between $75 - $80
under an empty table in the bar once.
another time I found $50 walking to the Pub one night, which was a bonus as I didn't have to go to the ATM that night.

Re: Whats the most amount of money you've ever found?

£20 in the street I think. I just pocketed it. Me and my GF found a sat nav once in a car park. The police were pretty useless about getting it back to its rightful owner, in the end my GF's dad went as far as turning it on and getting the home address from it so we could send it back!
