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.
Serves you right for not handing it in to the authorities like a responsible citizen.
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.
