Just the other day Tim Cameron tweeted about losing his wallet on his way home from work. There wasn’t an ID with an address or a name in Tim’s wallet. He had only his credit card there. According to him, it’s standard in the UK for your account details to be printed on your bank card.
What the person who found his wallet did was quite creative. Although they didn’t have the owner’s name, they still found out a way to be helpful. They decided to make four £0.01 payments into Tim’s account and add a message in the reference section. As the picture in the tweet shows, the full message is: “Hi! I found your wallet in the road.” It also has a phone number added, so Tim could call and get his wallet back. Isn’t that neat?
Many were fascinated by Tim’s story. This led to a whole thread of people sharing similar things, which is even more impressive. Here are some of the stories found in the comment section of Tim’s post.
