This is one such incident where the victim might have forgiven somebody who had harmed him. Though he would have been upset for losing his hard-earned money, the apology letter and the note it had would have calmed him down. Victor Molina lost his wallet and found it back with a written note inside with an apology.
The letter read: “I am sorry. I am not the kind of person who takes other people’s things, but I did not have anything to feed my kids so I owe you the money.”
The wallet was stolen in the city of Casilda, Argentina, with less than $13 inside. It was then dropped off secretly at a local radio station before employees spotted it on the floor, ‘abandoned’ with a note tucked inside.
According to reports, the wallet had all the documents of owner. The father of nine told: “I only had 500 Argentine pesos (£9.50/$12.50) in the wallet so if he took it to feed his children, it was good that this person ended up with it.
“I think the letter is genuine. If he was a bad person, he would have nicked the money and thrown away the wallet. Instead, he returned it and left a nice note. I think it is even possible that he might know me.”
Molina added: “If he really did it to feed his kids then fine, it is not a big deal. He does not owe me anything and we are good.”
People were quick to express their sympathy on social media with one user commenting: “Poor guy, what a tough situation.”
So, what do you think of the thief?
