A landlord has surprised his longtime tenant, Chris Robarge, with a cheque of $2500 (GHC 15,081.79) and the man could not just believe it.
In a Facebook post on Wednesday, August 11, Chris said that his former landlord called him and asked for where he now lives.
The tenant went ahead to narrate that he rented the house at a time he just needed a place to stay following a divorce he had.

Neighbours helped a retired teacher
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a retired school teacher, Anne Glancey, one day received an invoice that she was going to be fined up to $3,000 (GHC 18,000) daily for all the repairs that needed to be done on her house.
The development made the woman really confused as she did not know where to get that kind of sum since she had no family or friends.
Adam and Kristin Polhemus were the only neighbours she had known for five years. The woman took the letter to them and they helped her find a solution.
