Today, I walked into Best Buy to buy a 42" widescreen TV I'd been saving up for many months. As I walked in, a man stopped me and handed me my wallet that I'd accidentally dropped. I thanked him. 5 minutes later at the checkout, I opened up my wallet to realize it was empty. He had stolen everything. FML

So after losing your wallet you waited until you were at the cashier to check if all your cash was still there??

Uh... do you mean you were carrying all that money in cash? If it was a card then it wouldn't matter, he couldn't use it...

YDI because I like to press YDI

YDI cuz ur an idiot.... u carried that kinda money on you in cash... idiot!!

op never said cash. a theif could easily take a credit card. i fail to see how he deserved it

he probly took it out of your pocket you dumb fuck.

Because not everybody likes to build a mass of credit card debt that can destroy their future like you do 124

Didn't know debit cards were a debt. Also using a credit card is good, simply purchase with the credit card and transfer the cash over and pay it off immediately. Builds your credit score and you pay no more than the cost of the purchase...

I thought the same exact thing

Ya...i agree with number 1 why were you carrying so much cash? besides i doubt the guy that found your wallet stole the money, it was probably some other douche

Because wallets normally have people's names and pictures on them right? How's this supposed good person gonna know it's OP's wallet without some identification? Unless they assumed. "Is this your wallet" would be the quote then. I'm pretty sure the guy who gave OP it stole it. But OP deserves it for not checking it. When your wallet falls things can also fall out.

Ryan...um, last time I checked, yes wallets have ID, normally a license with their picture and address. In my experience with dealing with criminals (as a job), people that steal your stuff, are normally not the ones to return the wallet/stuff. This is because most people would check the wallet and find the money missing, then call the police.

#132 If OP dropped the wallet and the person who found it knew it was her wallet, chances are he really did steal her stuff. Your suggestion that someone else took her cards doesn't make sense. If that was true, OP would have dropped her wallet, Person 1 (the thief) picked it up, emptied it, and then dropped it again, and person 2 (the nice guy) saw it lying there and returned it to her. If Person 2 saw Person 1 doing this, they would have tried to stop them or call the police or tell OP or SOMETHING. If person 1 somehow had enough time to disappear by the time person 2 came along, OP should be long gone too and there's no way person 2 would see a wallet lying there and know who it belonged to. So yes, the only explanation that makes sense is the person who found the wallet and knew immediately who its owner was, was also the one who stole the money.

Agreed #1. Man that sucks! If you had any credit cards, you should cancel them!

If you were carrying that much in cash you totally deserved it.

Use a debit card! You're asking for trouble by carrying hundreds of dollars in cash.

They didn't say they were paying in cash, they could have been saving in their bank account and lost their credit/debit cards.

you can just cancel those before they can use them #7, so he'd still have the money

If this was true, then it was obviously the stranger that handed him the wallet, or else how else would he know that OP the rightful owner?

pfft, shoulda checked when he was still there. and remembered exactly what he looked like in case he ran away.
