Notes & Transcripts

An unemployed teacher noticed a bag in the street as she was driving home, so she stopped to see what it was. She doubted it contained anything at all, until she saw the label reading “Chase Bank.” Candice Scott said it looked like a gallon size baggie with a blue zipper on the top. She almost didn’t stop because she thought it might be a dirty diaper. After a dump truck ran over the bag, Scott decided to pick it up, and discovered two huge bundles of hundred dollar bills wrapped in rubber bands. She immediately took the money to the nearest Chase Bank branch and had to bang on the glass for several minutes before the branch manager finally came to the door. The bank manager thought Scott had been in an accident or had been robbed, until Scott showed her the bag of cash. The bank later revealed that the bag contained $20,000, and had no idea how it had fallen in the street. The bank manager was thankful to get the money back and thanked Scott for returning the cash. Scott added, “She told me I’m the most honest person in the world, and I said ‘or the dumbest.’” —Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
