Default Found treasure trove creates a mystery!

Local article from Thursday's Miami Herald. There's a follow up article today where they state that a few family members have lawyered up to start the claiming process.

I can't believe how one would bring home something and not check it out thoroughly upon arrival or soon therafter.

This really poses the ethical question lol, I read an article not long back where someone purchased a couch from salvation army or goodwill, can't remember which but took it home, pulled the cushions to clean. They began to find money stashed in sandwich bags throughout the couch, I think in the end it was around 30k . Like I say, what would be your ultimate decision on what to do ???

You bought the couch and all the "stuffing" used to cushion it so its yours. Do you think the Salvation Army is going to have a record of who gave them the couch? I doubt it.

I'd end up keeping it....which isn't the ethical thing to do....but I freely admit that I'd keep it.
