A Swiss loses 20,000 francs in the street, a couple gives him the money back

It’s a great early Christmas story. Two good Samaritans returned to an old mute man the 20,000 francs in cash (nearly 20,300 euros) that the latter had just lost in a parking lot in Switzerland. The man had gone by car to an ATM in Martigny to withdraw this large sum of money, says the police of the canton of Valais in a statement.

Once he got home, he realized the money was missing and rushed to the nearest police station to report a theft. But, the money had not been stolen! He was found in the parking lot where the old man had parked his car, the tickets neatly stored in an envelope with the extract and even the home address.

He gives 500 francs to the couple to thank them

“The couple went to the home of the unfortunate old man in order to return his money in full,” the statement said. To reward the good deed, the old gentleman, a little head in the air, but grateful, gave 500 francs to the couple.

“A beautiful story of citizen honesty lived in our canton, a story that was worth sharing with you on this first day of Advent”, rejoices the Valais police.
