What would you do?

Just a curiosity question really. I was reading another thread here on MyLot about finding someone's else's belonging, which got me thinking. What would you do if you found something like £50 - £100 ($100 USD - $200 USD) on the floor out in town and there was no sign of who it belonged too. Would you? A) Take it to the Police? Why? Anyone could say it belonged to them. B) Leave it were it was? Why? So someone else could pick it up? OR C)Keep It and feel lucky or guilty as it's not yours to Keep?

i would go with option C and just pick it up without feeling guilty.i'll tell you how the money has a chance of going back to the one who dropped it.when u buy something with that money(which i obviously would) it will rotate and has a remote chance of going back to the same person who dropped it. So dont think so much to pick it up.

I am too much of a goody two shoes when it comes to things like this. I start to think about the poor person who lost it and how they can't pay their bills or feed their children.... Usually I hold on to the money and if I found it in a parking lot I go into the store, tell the manager I found some money - and not the amount. I give my phone number and tell them if someone lost money to call me. If they have the right amount I give it to them. If no one calls after a time I keep it. Most people here won't call the police department if they lose money... so if it's loose money I don't turn it in to the police. They'll just keep it. If I find a wallet I do turn it into the police with everything as I found it.
