He Found A Fully Loaded Wallet, But Didn’t Expect To Get Thrice The Amount As Good Karma

Do you believe in an old expression mostly by children, the “finders keepers”? It is said as derived from an old children’s traditional expression “finders keepers, losers weepers”, which basically asserts that anything found or discovered by someone automatically entitles them to ownership of that property. Same goes by “Eat an apple a day, keeps the doctors away. (a)

But in our society being honest and returning the lost item or finding the rightful owner is still the best thing you can do. We Filipinos are truly believing in good and bad karma, but somehow and sometimes people are weak in temptations especially when you found a high value of m0ney or thing.

This is what happened to a netizen named Alvin Balbon, a teacher in an elementary school in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental.

(a) It was June 5, when Balbon found a black wallet with the unexpected huge amount of mo0ney, 30,000 pesos inside. Although he admitted that he felt a little bit tempted to keep it – honestly, anyone will feel the same way.

But good intention came first, he knew the money wasn’t his and that someone was surely so upset after it’s g0ne; thus, he posted about the item he found at a local Facebook marketplace group in Dumaguete. He instructed the owner to send him a private message but if he couldn’t find the owner at the group, he plans to turn over the wallet to the Dumaguete Police Station.

(a) Eventually, four days later, the owner was able to retrieve the wallet and the m0ney, intact. According to Balbon, the owner was very happy and thankful to get the m0ney back, saying that the m0ney is for the tuition.
