Would you return the money?

Submitted by on July 3, 2007 – 10:07 am19 Comments


A motorcycle taxi driver in the Phillipines is today either the most stupid or nicest man in the world.

Taxi driver Iluminado Boc‘s female passenger left behind a bag of cash in his cab – a cool $17,000 to be exact.

Boc, 45, found the money and returned it to police straight away.

The woman who lost the bag of cash had just reported it to police when Boc showed up at the precinct.

Boc wasn’t your average Good Samaritan either; he needed the cash for his sick wife and overdue rent, but honesty prevented him from keeping the money.

“It was not mine,” Boc was quoted as saying.

The owner rewarded him with $32 — nothing compared to the amount he returned, but about seven times what a motorcycle taxi driver makes a day.

What would you do if you found yourself in that situation?
