As I was leaving the mall tonight after seeing Men Who Stare at Goats, I stopped at a bank machine to deposit some cheques and take out some cash. I found $120 still in the machine. Whoever was there before me must have withdrawn cash from their account, took their receipt but forgot to take the cash. That’s my best guess.
I flagged down a mall security guard and showed her the cash still in the machine. She took it, put it in an envelope and told me she would take it to “lost and found.” I told her she should write down the time she found the cash and what machine she found it in so the bank could determine who the money belongs to.
She may have kept the money for herself. I don’t know.
