A cleaning woman at the Thunder Valley Casino near Sacramento, Calif., hit the jackpot when she found $10,000 in cash in the women's restroom last week. But the lucky woman didn't take the money and run. Instead, Meuy Saelee turned in the stack of Benjamins to her supervisor and got a nice bonus in return for her honesty.

CBS-13 in Sacramento spoke to Saelee about the discovery. She said she found the cash at around 2:30 a.m. in the casino's high-stakes restroom. Saelee says she didn't hesitate to do the right thing.

Upon giving the $10,000 to its rightful owner, Saelee was presented with a $500 thank-you.

The Web is full of stories of people doing the right thing when temptation strikes. Just a few months ago, an Austrian bus driver made headlines for returning a bag with 390,000 euros (nearly $510,000). Last October, a Vegas cab driver found $221,510 in the back of his taxi; he returned it and got a $2,000 tip. And in Singapore last November, a taxi driver found a bag with $900,000. When asked why he returned it, the man said, "The money is unimportant to me. It doesn't belong to me, so how can I use it?"

How can they determine who lost it to return it to them? If they can't find the person, will she get to keep it?

in a different article they determined who it was on surveillance. and the funny thing about this story is that last year to this day she was charged with child endangerment for leaving her two 2 and 3 year old children alone unsupervised outside as she was gambling.

I wonder about these people who are accidentally leaving their cash in restrooms and taxicabs? I mean, are they DRUNK or HIGH or something?? rolleyes
What we need is much more honest people like Meuy Saelee in this world... even though she rewarded Meuy for her good deed what we don't need in this world are people like Linh Hoang whom left toddlers at home unattended just so she can go to the casino and gamble.

ONE REASON WHY I'D THINK THEY'D RETURN THE MONEY IS THEY'D PROBABLY HAVE A HARD TIME EXPLAINING HOW THEY CAME UP WITH SO MUCH MONEY SO QUICKLY... A RICH UNCLE PASSED AWAY AND THEY WERE A BENEFICIARY IN HIS WILL?

Some people know the difference between what is theirs and what is not theirs and care which is which.
But even for those of you dishonest enough to take another person's money taking anything out of the high stakes area seems rather foolish. You can bet the security / video is higher there plus who ever you ripped off probably has the means to make your life miserable (or worse) if they figured out you ripped them off. And there is always the chance such a find could be a plant by the casino to test the employee

I'm just going to randomly point out that Casinos get alot of fake money and fake chips.

As an employee it is best you turn in and have examined any money or chips you find or are given.




The results of mistaking counterfeit money or game chips for real money or game chips can get you fired and thrown in jail.
I would ******** keep it
