    I got my papers (ID-card, credit cards, driving license, etc.) sent back to me by the finder but without the wallet and the money. It was not much money in it anyway as I was on my way home from shopping and spent almost all. What really made me sad was the lost of the wallet as it was a very expensive.

    it all depends if men's wallet was dropped vs a woman's purse
    our desi thurkys will put even extra money in a woman's purse before returning it and off course that extra money put in the woman's purse came came from a stolen wallet
