I've made my decision.

Cameras or no Cameras, I would return it. It's not mine and it doesn't belong to me.

I agree... my honor is worth far more than $17,000. Now if I were to find it in the park or an empty parking lot, or in any other situation where the owner of the money isn't clear or obvious, then that is a different story.

I would turn the money in,it's not mine to keep.
I would dream about going on a great shopping
trip.I would have a great hiding place built with
the money,a cabin in the deep woods.I would
have my black car repainted a pretty shade of
blue.Maybe some shiny,chrome hubcaps and
kitty pawprints detailed on the sides.

Because if you are not any different then you have no right to complain about them.

MAMABETH the first sane comments on here i commend you.

but no i stick with it going to do more good than bad and im not speaking about a freacking shopping spree.

Groceries bills ive got 4 payday loans out that cost me at least 350 a month in intrest, im not in a good place $$$$
speaking,

so i will play devils advocate if i didnt have a child and no job and 4 payday loans with totals =around 2,000 and interest on top of loans i have to pay, oh and my daughter needs to eat, and school right around the corner again im going to need at least 2,000 for clothes and school supplies for the new year; oh wait and she too young to understand the stupid goverment screwd the u.s. a long time ago by not manafacturing goods here by outsourcing, so many things which are out of my hands and im just the victim, oh and it just not me now my daughter gets to suffer these effects.

so sorry i would take it and not feel a for a second sorry for doing it. but if it did belong to someone yes of course i would give it back. Why would i want to impose my hardships on another.

Interesting responses so far. Technically, you'd probably get caught because the ATM would have a video record of everyone who used it, and Loomis would probably have records of when they had their brain fart, and the list of suspects would end up being pretty short.

Honestly I don't know if I would be able to keep it, either, but if I knew with 100% certainty that I would get away with it, it would be tempting - and morally I think I could live with myself knowing that the money would be better serving my family's needs than lining the pockets of wealthy bankers. The karma thing I don't know about. The bankers don't seem to get their comeuppance, so why would I? Maybe Karma is something the elites make up to keep you from doing the same thing they do?

Kinda like the line in 'Liar Liar': "My teacher says real beauty's on the inside." "That's just something ugly people say.”

I would be to afraid to keep it. I would think I was either on a bank camera somewhere, or a tv show like "what would you do".
