well a) why would you be carrying around a bag full of money in the first place, and b) you shouldn't have been carrying it so I'm keeping it anyways. :)

rule of thumb is, if there is ID, return it. If there's no ID, then keep it. If a large sum of valuable is found and the owner reports it,...then it's at your own risk that you keep the valuable...unless you are 100% positive that there are no traces of any kind that can lead authorities to you or link you to that valuable.

I'm debating in my head on this because the morally just and chivalrous thing to do is return the money, as if I don't then the whole "what goes around, comes around" thing weighs on the mind. But maybe finding the money would be your good karma from another good deed? It's all in perspective. I'd keep it. You only get a lucky break ever so often.

keep 1-5% as a "fee" and return the rest. At least if the bag of money is over $500. if it's under $50 I'm keeping it and between $50-500 i'm returning the whole thing.

I'd keep it big time! What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. That means your money, too! When you go to Vegas you should expect to leave with absolutely no money. Plus, if you're walking around with that much cash, you shouldn't be careless enough to just leave it or forget it somewhere.
Imagine all the awesome things you could buy with that money! You could buy all sorts of happyness! I'd buy 20 iPads!

Purely situation, if I knew the person I would give it back. If I did not know the person I would not. I would like to consider myself a good person and I believe in karma. The point is this, would kind of person would just leave a bag of money on a hotel shuttle. First, I would not have been carrying 10k in a duffel bag because that just pure insanity for someone who doesn't have any money which tells me that the person who lost it just doesn't care about it to even strap it to their body. (I'd use duct tape)

Karma would slap me in the face in anger for not taking that money and giving the ID to authorities or even a lost and found location. Karma benefits people just as it destroys people. Just my 2 cents.

it really depends, if it was someone I knew, ya I would give them their money. also it depends on the amount, if it was actually 10,000 I would keep it and never say a word, if it was in the hundreds I would return it.

i think i didnt read the last option well, i thought it said, return the owner's money after you gamble them (whatever is left or maybe more) xDD
kadaeux Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2010
Keep it. And get back to Australia before its owners know its missing or more importantly come looking for it. A Bag of money is not a legal thing.

Return it; it'll be awful losing your own money and someone just kept it..
bacman136 Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
i pick keep the money. but that could change depending on the circumstances. id like to research the person first. depending on what i found out would change what i did with it.

I'm no samaritan...
CupcakeAshley Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010

I'd want to keep it so freakin bad...but, although I'm not much of a spiritual person, I'd always fear the BAD KARMA!

And I'm seriously having a moral dilemma over this right now.

FD3SDriver Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
Honestly i'd return it; but hoping of course that they would reward me.
Bl4ck-and-wh1te Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
Return it. If i lost a bag with money, I would want the same thing to happen to me.

I would, in my heart, hope there was a gift or a reward, but if not, I know I did the right thing.
MikeZadopec Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
I could say there are many rewards in life greater than money because I am not starving.
If it was a lot of money some people would return a portion and keep a big reward, Ha Ha, ike.
OtherPeopleIdiots Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
why does nobody votes the last option ?

its awesome.
orcbruto Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Give the ID back, say no money was found =D
JessiKa-Violet Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
I would definitely return it. Money burns. Morality and a clean conscience has so much more worth.
PerforatedPhoto Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
I'd like to think I would have the vitamins to return it... Even if I don't get a reward, thats gotta build
up some serious Karma points!... :p

Not knowing the circumstances, how can anybody decide they have a better claim on it than the owner? The right thing to do is return the money. The smart thing to do is call the police and turn it in to them and let them contact the owner. If they can not contact the owner or are unable to locate the owner, then you will get it after a set period of time and it's yours legally.

Rewards are nice, but if you are only doing the right thing in expectation of getting a reward, your heart is in the wrong place.

Remember: Keeping somebody else's money makes you a thief.
santiagomagnetic Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
i keep it.. praying that wasn't it from the mafia xd
Skeksy Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
I would return it. I hope that if I ever lose anything important to me, someone would be as kind. High hopes for this world I guess.
LAPoetry-n-Photo Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
They should keep better track of their money! Who leaves a bag of money lying around? Not me. I don't have much, so it's precious to me.
Trying to put myself in those shoes is difficult. I'd like to say I'd return it, but I don't know if I would...I'd probably keep half and return the rest plus the ID.
Blade-Of-Mako Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
I'm a terrible person; I'd keep it if the owner wasn't immediately apparent. And by immediately apparent, if there wasn't someone's ID in it.

If there was ID, or I saw it fall out of someone's bag, or something ... I'd probably give it back.

May take a small finder's fee, though. It's ten grand, they won't miss a couple hundred ... *innocent look*
3dE-sign Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
money is money... it is by all means not everything.
Salem5 Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
Normally I would return it. But since it's Las Vegas I'd keep it :D
But I'd definetely give the ID to some kid to return it to the police, I am just that nice :P
bixwax Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
i would return it if i listen to my heart

i would keep it and depending how much the money is and gamble or even start a business.

if it is succsessful then i would say "hey thanks i found your money and did my business"

and never see him/her again.
Andyghost Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
always keep the money, no return, no gamble, no matter the place :D
clindhartsen Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010  Professional Interface Designer
I'd be tempting, but I'd probably pursue whoever lost it.
WhitePonyPosed Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Now, if there was no ID or any indication as to whom the money belongs...that money would be going right into my pocket ;)
sideshowsito Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010  Professional Photographer
FYI : this actually happened to a friend of mine ... and she was a good samaritan and returned it. The lady who lost it didnt give her any reward or anything in return for returning it. My friend said there must have been over $10,000 of cash in the bag and they found it on a hotel shuttle.
MiaMu247 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2010
wow. that woman was cheaaaap. haha >.<
but i think if it was me, id take some. XD
See-Three Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
This is why I say fuck them and keep the money myself.

But It would be a different story if I knew the person.
RufflesnStripes Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
Now that is bullshiiiit that she wasn't even given a tiny COME WOMAN, WTF??? Cheep ass! ;P $20 is better then nothing and hell, $100 is pocket change when you put it next to $10,000, but nothing.......that's pretty lame!! Props to your friend for being such a good samaritan.
