Would you accept money from a stranger? You don t know who, why and for what he give you money, he don t have a explanation for this, but give you a bag with money, what you will do with this money? Accept or not?

I have never met such a situation. It is impossible completely or me to accept money from a stranger. Before accepting the money, I will tend to figure out the reason why one wants to give me it. Usually, if one give me the money without any causes, I often regard it as a scam or a trap. In fact, it is true that "Prefer loss to unjust gain." Once you have profited at one's expenses, then you will lose a lot sooner or later. If I meet such a situation next time, I will refuse it without any hesitation.

Your answer is right. In china, many old words had shown that. Earning money deponded on our efforts. Don't let other things lose our time.

I think if I was to be given money from a person, and especially if they were to have ran, I would go to the police station or call the police, tell them the description of said person, the direction in which they came from, the direction in which they left, and anything else they may ask of me! I would not accept said money without first knowing the source of it or the reason for it!

I wouldnt accept it. I'd actually be rather scared to because if you don't know where it comes from and you dont know the person either, why accept the money?

I think this is a very strange question and i don`t think any unknown person will ever hand me a bag of money.Even if this happens i will certainly not take it as it is very fishy. That money could be stolen money or that person could be a smuggler or something equally dangerous. We have enough troubles of our own and would not like to add to them.Anyway who wants to get entangled with gangsters or even the cops ,who are certain to come into the picture.

If a stranger gave me money and then ran off I would then take the money in the house. I would call the police and explain to them what happen and hand the money over to them. I would show them which way the stranger went and describe him or her the best I could. If the police could not fine the stranger and know one claims the money then it would be mine and I would then keep it and then pay bills and help out others.

icesmile I would take the money, and make a photo in my head of the stranger, then go to the police and tellthem all about this' probable burglar and give them the money.It does not belong to me but was taken in all probability from someone else, so it belongs to the police so they can find the owner or owners.

Id have it cos screw all these old wives tales of something dont come for nothing and all that! Maybe its just a lucky break in life cos i can assure you i havent had many, so if thats the case and we only receive what we earn, with the shite ive been through in life i think its about time i got something back as ive always gave and never received. Dont get me wrong im not a selfish person but sometimes one has to think well its about time i had something for my efforts isnt it? cos believe me mines been a struggle so i would welcome free money! Cool discussion thanks.

This is hard to answer. It's hard to know what people are thinking and what they are expecting in return.

I have been a similar situation once. Many years ago I was standing at the busstop waiting for a bus and all of a sudden a man appeared. He didn't offer me a bag of money, but he wanted to give a 100 kr-bill (about $20) He kept on saying to me: "I want to give it to you, you need it, I know that you need it", but I didn't want to take the money. I don't want to accept money from a stranger, because I didn't know what he wanted in return or if he had a hidden agenda. It is possible that he was simply trying to do a good deed, but I didn't feel comfortable taking the money.

I will not accept strangers' money. In the world, money is more important, and we work hard for it every day. Someone give you money, I am sure he want to get somethings. I think if you accept, you will lose more. Earning more must depond on your efforts, only that way, no other.

I would gladly accept the bag of money and go on with my life, one of my brothers told me once that if somebody want to give you something take it. That's what I would do if there were no strings attach with it. ...
