Id probably keep it if it wasnt in a wallet or anything, if would be depedant on if there was a police station close or not.

I think that most people would like to say that they would not keep the money, but lets be honest we would all keep the money. Granted some of us would give a percentage to charity or someone who needs it, but the vast majority we would keep it. Did you hear about those people who were cleaning the Casino and found $17,000? I dont think that I heard any of them say anything about charity.

Seeing as how 500 dollars as such doesn't have a name on it, yes I would keep it. You could always take it to the police but then, in Belgium anyway, you eventually get to keep the money if nobody comes to claim it after two years. If i found a wallet with money in it and an address it would be completely different, and i would try to return it, but just finding 500 dollars with no name and address, sorry i'm keeping it, without feeling guilty by the way :)

That depends. First I don't know if its against the law. I know a certain amount and over you have to turn it in to the police. So if I had to turn it in I would because who knows, maybe it's stolen or something. If I could keep it though, I would probably look at my situation. If i were broke or low on money i'd keep it, if I was well off I would give it to someone in need. It would all depend on the situation.
