Yesterday (Tuesday, November 3) a member of the security staff at the Munich Hauptbahnhof (central train station in Munich) found a bag (man purse) containing 24,000 Euros and two Egyptian passports. He brought the bag to the Federal Police (Bundespolizei) at Munich Central Station (as anyone of us would). The rightful owner came to the station to claim the bag within minutes and the honest finder got the “Finderlohn” reward he is entitled to by law from the happy Egyptian, the Bundespolizei informs.
The Egyptian father and son could account for the money, which was intended for the father’s surgery in Germany. The son had left the bag at a Coffee-to-go after buying two coffees and noticed that the bag was missing shortly before the train left. The security staff member found the bag there. Visibly relieved the 71-year-old father accepted his money, not without to thanking and rewarding the honest citizen at the spot.
The “Finderlohn” reward for the 24,000 Euros roughly amounts to 750 Euros.
