A Las Vegas taxi driver found $221,510 while cleaning out his van last month.

Adam Woldemarim, the driver, discovered the cash stuffed in a soft laptop case that was left between the seats of the Virgin Valley Cab vehicle. Woldemarim then did what anyone feeling lucky in Sin City would do: He turned it in.

The 42-year-old from Ethiopia took the case to the cab company's security office, which soon got a call from the case's owner, who, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, "won big at the Wynn and was on his way to the airport when he [realized] he forgot a little something."

Woldemarim was called back to the security office, where the big winner gave him a $2,000 reward.

Yeah, I "forgot" my $200,000+

Imbecile.

I think a 10% tip on that would have been appropriate....

I'd have called a friend to call the cab company to claim it, and then add a little theatrics with the grateful man giving me a generous tip.

$2000 is a weak reward for someone who just saved you $200k+. Granted the cabbie did the right thing.. but how many other cab drivers would have done the same thing. Just as easy to blame the next guy who got in the cab...

To be honest, that would have been a very hard decision. If I knew in advance how puny the reward was going to be I might not have turned it in.

i saw that on Euronews today; there's still honest people in this world, so we can still live in it :)

and honestly, he did the right thing; the reward was just a bonus, nothing more (and a well deserved one).
