LAS VEGAS, NV – You ever heard of the term, “finders, keepers?” Well, that concept probably skipped over this man we’re about to tell you about.

Gerardo Gamboa, a cab driver in Sin City of all places, says he found a paper bag in his cab that had $300,000 inside. And, instead of keeping all of the loot, he chose to give it back to its rightful owner.

If that sounds dumb, wait until you get a load of this part of the story – The money’s owner ended up giving Gamboa $10,000 as a thank you. And, Gamboa’s boss gave him a thousand dollars, a steak dinner for two, four days off with pay and the title of “driver of the year” for his good deed. Not bad at all!

So, see kids? Being nice and honest these days can definitely pay off.
