Honest man finds N9.7m at an ATM, takes it inside bank to return it

George Condash overcame a very tempting situation when he saw a box containing $27,000 (N9,760,500) very close to an ATM at a Michigan credit union on Tuesday, January 22.

He did the unexpected, drove to the Westland Federal Credit Union and returned the money, an act not many would do, CNN reports.

In speaking about returning the money, George said the money was not his and that any honest person would have done the same thing he did.

In an interview with CNN, George said when he placed the money on the counter, the staff members of the financial institution were dumbstruck.

The security video at the ATM showed a security guard getting boxes of cash from an armoured security vehicle. It was 20 minutes after that George was seen inspecting the box that was left behind.

Though the box was labeled $40,000 (N14,460,000), only $27,000 (N9,760,500) were left inside after loading. The bank also said that they rewarded the good man with an amount they did not disclose.

The bank manager, Alicia Stewart, however, said that if George had not returned the money, the bank would have retrieved the security footage from the ATM and tracked him down through his vehicle’s number plate.
