Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.
What would you do if you found a wallet stuffed with cash and no identification?
Roughly ten years ago, my wife and I ran into this exact situation. We were making do on a shoestring budget, about to have a baby, and we ran across a blue nylon wallet laying in the parking lot near a side entrance into the local mall.
There was nobody in sight and when I picked it up and looked inside, I was shocked to see eleven crisp $100 bills. But that was it. No credit cards, no driver’s license… Nothing. Just the cash.
When faced with a situation like this, what would you do?
I don’t want to influence the discussion, so I’ll post my answer in a couple of days.
Edit to add: I’ve now posted my answer.
