If you’ve ever kept money you’ve found instead of handing it in, you’re missing out on some seriously good karma.
You should be more like Colin Banks, a builder from Scotland who found £30 cash in an ATM and handed it into the shop.
For his good deed, the universe rewarded him with an almost £50,000 win from a £1.50 bet he’d placed.
Banks, a dad of two and a builder, told the Daily Record: ‘They say honesty is the best policy, and it certainly was for me.
‘I have a big family and I’m now going to make sure we all have a brilliant time this Christmas – the best we as a family have ever had.’
Colin, 50, went to withdraw money at Asda in Motherwell with his daughter Zoe, 25, when they noticed that a previous customer had left behind £30. Without hesitating, they handed the cash into the supermarket.
Just half an hour later, Colin found out that his long-shot bet had landed him £49,077.
He celebrated with ‘more than one glass’ of wine, and has already treated himself to a second-hand Ford Focus.
Colin added: ‘I have a nephew, Gordon, who is getting married in Mexico in May and I’ll be able to afford to go now.’
