Not sure who really owns it, the man opened the purse to discover wads of dollar bills and other foreign currencies.

He was able to count over $3000 and some other currencies in different denominations. Apart from the money, there were three ATM cards. The taxi driver also found three international passports.

The temptation was strong

Speaking to Lara about the encounter and the temptation to take the money, he said:

"My mind spoke to me and I spoke back to my mind."

When Emmanuel returned the money and valuables, the lady was in shock and kept shedding hot tears. She never rewarded the driver with a dime. Despite that, he stated that he feels so much at peace with what he had done.
