NEW PALTZ, NY – Not long after roommates Reese Werkhoven, Cally Guasti and Lara Russo got it, they found nearly $41,000 worth of cash hidden inside their couch.
They also found an envelope with a woman’s name on it. So they tracked her down and returned the cash. The anonymous elderly woman says she had been stashing money in the couch for years. Family members had no idea and mistakenly donated the couch.
But, it pays to do the right thing. The woman gave the roommates $1,000 as a reward.
