Countless cars passed by, but Candace Scott pulled over.

At about 8 a.m. Tuesday, Scott was on her way home after dropping her cat off at the vet when she spotted something strange on William D. Fitch Parkway.

    I think a strap of $100 bills comes in a count of 100 equal to $10,000. My guess is the same as yours.... $200,000 sounds about right. Hopefully, there will be more to this story.

    Things dont add up with the bank claiming it's theirs. They just opened up that morning meaning no one could have withdraw that amount and they have no idea who or where it came from then they have no comment? Sounds like the bank found some free bonus money.

    A strap of $100.00 bills = $2,000.00 and if there was a "stack" I believe it was probably more like $200,000.00 but the bank is trying to keep it low key. It was nice that the bank gave her a reward of $500.00 but for someone not to claim it??? Whoever it is they probably won't say anything because they would probably lose thier job.

    I suppose I can understand there may be reasons why they didn't disclose the exact amount of money. The bank spokesperson said 20,000, but Mrs Scott described it as "two huge bundles" of $100 bills. Assuming they were all 100's, $20,000 in two stacks would be about 2" thick per stack. Two stacks of about 10" (a better definition of "huge") would have been around the $200,000 that she guessed at.

    I read the entire article because I was curious to see if Chase Bank rewarded her for returning the money. Its amazing to hear about such honesty these days! Good luck Mrs.Scott on your job search. You will make a great teacher!

    Hats off to you, Mrs. Scott. I'm rooting for your "luck to change" so that you can find a position you desire. All the best to you! [smile]

    I agree and hope she gets the job she wants. If you are her sister, give her a hug for me.

    A great big salute to Mrs Scott for her honesty. I'll bet she wasn't disappointed in the reward or even thinking about getting one.

    So Chase bank doesn't know where the money came from, who owns it, or how it "came to be in the roadway". So how did they determine it belongs to them?

    That reminds me of a time a few years ago, I was way overweight (fat as a house, really) and I was eating my third double bacon cheeseburger from Whataburger and I dropped a little piece of cheese. I was too fat to bend over and pick it up, but this scrawny little mouse, so thin you could see his bones, picked it up, crawled up the table leg, onto my lap, and gave me back that tiny piece of cheese. So I gave him an even tinier piece of cheese - about the size of a pinhead - as a reward. He was so grateful. Then he died.

    I would have turned down the $500 credit gift card and given Chase the choice of donating $10,000 to my favorite charity or being flamed all over the internet.

    nah, 'fraid not, if I thought it belonged to someone, then yes, I'd turn it in, but, to the bank, who is insured, no.
    I would consider it manna from heaven.

    Candace is a kind, honest and caring woman. And I am proud to call her "sister"! She would really make a great teacher....(Hint, Hint College Station School District)!

    I left out the decimal. The amount should be $20,000.00.

    A $500 reward .... really? That is inadequate to say the least. That lady did the right thing now those that benefited from her good deed need to do the right thing.

    Chase, their courier service or the courier's insurer need to step up and pay her a real reward. Something on the order of 10% or the returned funds. Yes, $20,0000 sounds just about right.

    I would have turned it in also as soon as I got back from Hawaii and Las Vegas!

    OK I wish I would do the same thing.
