NYC Cab Driver Returns $21,000 to Tourist

PATCHOGUE, N.Y. (Jan. 12) — A New York City cab driver is being praised for returning more than $21,000 lost by a visitor from Italy.
 
Felicia Lettieri, who’s 72, left her purse in a Manhattan taxi on Christmas Eve. It contained traveling money for her and six relatives.
 
Police told them not to get their hopes up about finding it.
 
The cabbie drove about 50 miles, to a Long Island address he’d found in the purse. No one was home, so he left his phone number and later returned with the money.
 
Lettieri’s daughter, Maria Rosaria Falonga, told Newsday from Pompei, Italy, that the cabbie also left a note.
He told her: “Don’t worry, Felicia. … I’ll keep it safe.”
 
“When I was 5 years old, my mother told me, ‘Be honest, work hard and you will raise your station,’ ” said the driver, Mukul Asaduzzaman, to the New York Post newspaper. He refused a reward.

 

A THOUGHT: This is a great story about an honest person who did something right. However, our suggestion to the moron who carried $20k (cash) in her purse – “Ever heard of TRAVELER’S CHECKS or a BANK DEBIT CARD, DUH!”
