It depends on who you think left it there, I would think that the Lottery is not likely to have raw cash in a bag like that and it is sheer coincidence it's in that spot so I would guess that it was some kind of proceeds from drug dealers and that anyone else would be able to make more noble use of it than they did and if the Feds got it all they're going to do is spend it on more hidden cameras along the Interstate to automatically ticket you for having a taillight out or something.... conspiracy theory aside, it would depend on the situation. If it really belonged to the Lottery I'd give it to them immediately but otherwise I'd be tempted to hide it away somewhere to be only used for emergencies but knowing me I'd probably let them know inside and hang around long enough to get my ugly face on TV and my 15 minutes of fame. SIMILAR QUESTION: what if in 2003 you saw them put JW's briefcase by the Dumpster behind the Pink Pony? Knowing what would happen later in the future you'd be doing him a favor to take it. But that's just it you don't know the future and you don't know why there's a bag of loot behind Lottery HQ. (Not far from Lottery HQ a few yrs. ago there was a drug dealers' truck with 5 million cash)

      I am pretty sure I would keep it.

      Put it this way- I would have to have a long talk with myself to find a reason to turn it in.

      I Agree!

        Any transaction with a cash amount over $10,000 has to be reported doesn't it?  I worked at a car dealership a long time ago and I remember when everyone had to watch a movie about the possibility of someone walking in with a suitcase full of cash.  It was actually very funny, like the old anti-marijuana movies.  (anyone see Reefer Madness made in 1936?)  I'm trying to picture what $2 million would look like.  100,000 20 dollar bills or maybe 40,000 50 dollar bills or 20,000 100 dollar bills....or a mix of all of them.  That's a lot of paper!  It would be nice to roll in it, although I understand money has more germs on it than just about anything we touch.  It's a dirty world out there I tell ya!!

        I worked at a bank, there are ways around this 'must report' law....

         

        Anyway, if I found the money, I have no scruples - I'd keep it - UNLESS I see on the news or in the paper an elderly person or couple that 'lost their life savings of cash', then I would return it.   But if not for that, I'd spend it, in very small amounts.

          There have been cases of people finding 100K+ in the trash and turning it into the cops. About half the time the cops keep the cash even if no one claims it. Odds are it would be drug money and you would have to be very careful since your life would be worth far less than that amount of money to criminals.

            Dirty filthy money.  I would launder it just as pacattack would. No problem.  Maybe not even that, just stick it in the microwave 30 secs. on Medium,  any bacteria, virus,  or nastiness cooked beyond mitochondrial survivabilty.  Delicious free money from the lottery.

              When I used to hear that most U.S. bills have traces of cocaine, I thought it was a crazy rumor.  However, it's true.  Some studies show that 4 out of 5 bills have some trace of the cocaine on them.

                After a while most people just get numb from hearing of all those stories....

                      Look, I gotta draw the line on all this drug related banter.

                      You two should take a powder.
