Research Shows People More Likely To Return Wallets With Cash Inside


People are more likely to return a lost wallet if it contains money – and the more cash, the better.

That’s the conclusion from researchers who planted more than 17,000 “lost wallets” across 355 cities in 40 countries and kept track of how often somebody contacted the supposed owners.

Money inside the wallet – the equivalent of about €11.50 in local currency – boosted this response rate to about 51 per cent, versus 40 per cent for wallets with no cash.
