Take it to the police. There was a story in the news just the other day about a person who was arrested for not taking found money to the police. It is considered stealing to keep it without getting the police involved.

What a sad state of our countrys morals this is. I would hand it over to the police. Typically, if they are unable to locate the owner (and verify) the money will be yours. At least, when your time on this planet is done, you can say you did the right thing.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I would definately take the briefcase to the police station. Just the briefcase.

If I found a million bucks in a breifcase I would keep it on the theory anyone carrying around a million bucks in cash can afford to lose it! Now if I read the next day a million dollars was lost while being transferred to Jude Memorial Childrens Hospital of something similar I would have to reconsider and give it back.

where did i find it? can i try to identify the proper owners? i might not just take it to the police because i don't trust them. I definitely would not spend it, but I might hold on to it and see if I could find out whose it was. Maybe someone will report it lost? I would return it to the owners (unless i thought they were using it for drugs or something) but I'm not sure if I would give it to the police, since they are only human and might decide to keep it.
After about 10 years i would probably give it to charity. I might spend part of the money to hire a private investigator to try to determine whose it was.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I'd keep it, as long as it wasn't an obvious bank robbery, like consecutive serial numbers, or, like the other guy, if it wasn't where there were likely to be surveillance cameras around.

I would keep it and see if anything came up on the news or in the paper...Then after a month or so I would donate half to
a charity and the rest would be mine all mine...
Then again How much case is in the case...
thinking more about this I am concerned that I would have guilt for keeping the money....I will turn it in...Damn Guilt....

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I would either take it to the police - if it is unclaimed within a certain # of days you can keep it (I think) - depending on where you live OR I would put an ad in the local paper saying where it was found and let them describe the briefcase to you to verify ownership. I'm sure they realize they lost whatever amount of money is in there. Or, I could just hand them the empty briefcase and keep the cash. That's a decision between me and my conscience.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I would take half and then take the rest to the police station and say thats how I found it!

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Just me.
I don't know if its real money or fake .

Wel, my subconcious would curse me a blue streak, but my karma would reward me. I would be the jerk turning it over to the police...

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I would take a little, enough so you couldn't tell much was missing... And then take it to the police...

But I don't know, maybe I wouldn't take any at all, I would have to be in the situation...

I say I would at least pocket a good $1000, if it was completely full, no one would miss it...

The world today is full of surveillance cameras. Can you be sure that the owner isn't going to remember where he left it, come back and find it gone, and then get, for example, the 7-11 across the street to check their prking lot cameras?

Really want to take the chance on going to prison over it?

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

take to the police it may be being wathced by drug dealers not ether way you die but this way you death may be investigated

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I would do what the law says I must; turn it into the police department.

If, after 30 days (varies from place to place), the money is not claimed, then they would return it to me.

It is the right thing to do. Taking the money is stealing.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Keep it. Sorry it's a harsh world & I am a single mom.
No name, no way to track it. I would keep it

It depends on where I "found it".
I would probably keep it.

take it to a police station. "finders keepers" doesn't apply in my life.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

id prolly keep it, put it away for a few years in case the bills were bein traced. then strategically and gradually put em back into circulation

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

No way to identify it at all? I'd keep it. I'd hold onto it and see if I heard anything about it and if I found the owner I'd give it back.

I'm sure it would never get back to the owner from the police station.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

god knows and sees else Yahoo
If you take half and then take the rest to the police station and say thats how I found it the MAFIA will kill you and your family, then revive you and kill you again-dont be stupid.

if you take it to the police it will disappear
if you put an ad in the paper everyone will claim its theirs
