Vegas taxi driver returns $300,000 found in cab

4 years ago78 views

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but one man is thanking his lucky stars that is not always the case after a taxi driver found something he had left in the back of a cab, and returned it.

No big deal you might well say, except that the lost item was an envelope bulging with some 300,000 dollars.

“I said, ‘Oh my god, this is cash money’,” recalled driver Gerardo Gamboa.

“You never thought ‘I could really use this’...?” asked a journalist.

“Oh no, no, not even, not even one second, no,’ was the emphatic reply.

The reward for driver Gerardo Gamboa’s honesty? A cheque for 1000 dollars from a grateful customer, who no doubt will never have a bad word for a taxi-driver again.
