#74, no, not really. Some people do get money back, but a lot of people end up owing the government more. It all depends on your tax bracket, money paid in, and things you can claim.

@110 I think that only applies if they share a bank account, but in this case I don't think Op should be complaining because she still gets $60 that someone else is missing.

Yeah, cause if you ask anyone on the street they are gonna say "no that's not my 100." It's never getting back to the owner unless the owner was right in front of them when he dropped it.

How exactly do you suggest they do that? Knock on nearby doors and ask if people lost $100? 9 out of 10 people are going to say they did. If it were in a wallet then yeah that would be different, and OP would be a douchebag. But the FML makes it sound like it was just lying out in the open.

People always want to comment to return money to the rightful owner, but how many of those people would ACTUALLY attempt that and not just keep it? And, like the people above me said, it's going to be nearly impossible to return it to the right owner.

When I was a kid I found $32 laying out in middle of a university campus. I dragged my dad along to people and we asked them if they'd lost money. We were lucky we found the guy but we made him tell us the dollar amount.

yeah and if you didn't see the owner dropping the money, how would the "authorities" found out the owner? Open an investigation and go through all the legal hassle to identify the owner? Or just tell you what you need to hear and pocket the $100 themselves? There's a difference between being a good citizen and a puppet.

Yes I would want to check if someone had reported it missing, or if it was counterfeit. I'm pretty sure you are allowed to keep it if you hand it in and no-one claims it. I'm not desperate for money, I'd rather make sure someone isn't going without it if I could take reasonable steps to return it.
