so the story goes, my sister calls me up asking if she can come over, I say ok. So my sisters arrive, and they show me that this wallet. My sisters friend found it somewhere and he took the cash that was inside, and they asked me if i want to go out and spend the credit card money with them. I say NO WAY!and I talk them into not spending it. So now they're gone, and I kept the wallet because idk if I trustmy sisters...so I have this guys wallet, but his cash is gone. If I return it to him, he's gonna think I stole his cash! what do I do?? I want to return it (oddly enough, I left my wallet out in public the other day and I got it back safely) so I want to do the same for this guy.

How do I go about this??

I think sometimes people would rather want the wallet then the cash, so I would say contact the man and say you found the wallet and ask if he had cash in it, you ask him before he ask's you

Can you not just hand it in to the police saying you found it roughly where your sisters friend found it

You could post it to him.

Or hand it in at the lost property of a Mall / big shopping centre.

All you have to say is that you found it like that. You would not be lying either.

Replacing all those cards is a nightmare.

How much cash was it? If it wasn't much, just tell him the truth and he probably won't be too upset. If it's a ton, then just tell him you found it like that wherever your sisters said they did. If you tell him the truth about a huge sum of cash, he may pressure you to get in contact with your sisters which wouldn't be good.

Who knows, maybe this is the beginning of a nice little romantic/awkward comedy. You just recently losing your wallet may have something to do with fate encouraging you to return this one to the owner. Also, the round-about way you obtained it also seems rather fateful. You were meant to meet this person.

I found a wallet at Wal-Mart once. It just had a licence and a couple other nick-knacks in it. I called the lady and she said if "you want to return it I don't have any money to give you for it" kind of snotty like. I said I didn't care and drove it over to her place. When I got there what I presume was the man of the house answered the door, took the wallet and said "That's mighty white of you". I could see the lady who lost it watching TV 20 feet way in the living room and she didn't even acknowledge I was there. I turned around and didn't even bother saying goodbye.

Makes you really think twice about wasting your time.

If there is a library card, drop it off at a branch of the library.

That's the easiest. I've gotten sets of keys back and a wallet because of my library cards.

Or send it to the DMV or whoever handles the license thing...they'll take care ot it.

Any US. Mailbox...

Most people report stolen cards right away so the cards in there are to be cancelled soon if not already.

I'd drop the DL in the post box and put the rest in the dumpster.

Call the police on your sister.

No excuse for thievery, whether they are your kin or not.

As has been mentioned two or three times now on this thread, take the time and have the compassion to drop it in a mailbox and be done with it.

Just think about this, what if they are between pay days (which would be about right) and their kids need something basic like food or diapers?

I for one would not want to be responsible for any undue suffering just because I can't be bothered to go to the nearest mail box and drop it in.
Why the delay?, get off your ass right now and do it.
It's not like running a marathon and secondly I myself am stunned anyone would even start a thread on this topic.
No offense intended but just get that wallet in the mail now and sleep well tonight.
ETA Your sister would be most unwelcome in our home, that is how the world should turn.
Lets keep the world civil where we can eh?

I just hope he was not some poor guy and that was all his food for the month.

When my daughters purse was stolen she had to redo all her cards lic and her pictures were all gone, she would have loved to get the purse back money or not.

I can't even begin to imagine keeping the money, I have returned dozens in my life one I had to pick up the money flying all over the highway and the wallet, I left mine is a convenience store on the counter when i paid, ran back inside and the girl said "what wallet" there was no one there but her and me. Someday it will all play out and you pay for what you do, I truly believe this.

You drop the wallet in a United States mailbox; it will get back to that person.

I am going to tell you a true story of when a friend of mine found a wallet. This was several years ago...she was going for a walk in her neighborhood and she found a wallet on the sidewalk. She looked inside and it had almost $500.00 dollars in it.

She brought the wallet home; looked at all the identification and found the owners phone number and called her; she was very anxious and grateful; and within a half hour she arrived at my friends home and claimed the wallet. She thanked her a lot and told her that she had just started a business with a friend and this money was very much needed.

About 10 days later my friend received a letter in the mail from the woman's parents thanking her with $100.00 cash inside.

Sooo... anyway your sisters were wrong in spending the money...and you were so right in not using that person's credit cards etc. I am glad you talked your sisters out of keeping the wallet.

Do a good deed + be a troll at the same time. Give the wallet back, plus give him your sister's friend's name and address, and tell him that he took the money out lol.

I dont know where you stand on money, but if you have the cash, put it in yourself and return it. Or

Just give it to him and tell him you found it like that, or that you saw someone throw it away.

Or just drop it in his mail box as is.

I would put the cash in yourself if it wasnt allot and you can spare it.

You could just take something from your sister, sell it, and use that cash to replace what she took.

I would also tell her what you did and your parents. She needs to know how much what she did sucks.
