Man stumbles upon unbelievable returns $27,000 outside ATM machine


Westland, Michigan — When it comes to good deeds, Michigan folks are putting together a nice run.

A man who stumbled upon a plastic box containing $27,000 for an ATM machine outside a credit union Tuesday didn’t hesitate on what to do next, WDIV Channel 4 reports. He took the money inside the Westland Credit Union office and placed it on the counter.

“I picked it up and noticed a tag that said it was $40,000,” George Condash tells WDIV. “I said, ‘Is there a reward for $40,000?’ And I put it on their counter and they just looked dumbfounded.” Although the tag said $40,000, the box contained $27,000.

The credit union was able to give Condash a small reward for returning the money, CNN reports. “That was a lot of money that could have resulted in a significant loss, and we just wanted to give him a token of our appreciation,” Alicia Steward, the bank’s cash manager, tells CNN.

It’s the second report of a Michigan returning a large amount of “found” cash in less than a week. Howard Kirby of Ovid, Michigan, returned more than $43,000 he discovered in the cushion of a used couch he purchased at a thrift store.

According to mlive.com, Kirby’s good deed has resulted in a local company donating materials for a new roof on his home, and a contractor has volunteered to install the roof. In addition, a A GoFundMe page for Kirby had raised nearly $4,500 as of Thursday morning.
