When Bobby Puryeas went to an ATM to withdraw some cash, he was got quite the surprise as there was $500 just waiting to be taken.
Bobby immediately went in to the bank to hand the money over, but they wouldn’t accept it. With it being such a large amount, Bobby decided that he wanted to find the rightful owner and went out of his way to find them.
With no employee in the bank willing to take the money, the manager was then called, who also did not have any idea what to do with it. Bobby then suggested that they find out who used the ATM before him, they agreed and said they would give Bobby a call if they could find out.
The following day, he received a call and to his surprise the bank had managed to find out who used the ATM before him. They discovered that the money belonged to a 92 year-old lady by the name of Edith as she had forgotten to take it from the machine.
When she found out that Bobby had the money, she was overjoyed and even offered to give him her last $20 as a reward. She had withdrawn the money to pay for her rent and only had $20 to last her the month.
