Ital­ian man finds wal­let in Żab­bar, traces owner, and up­loads video about it

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

An Ital­ian man has given a full ac­count of how he found a wal­let with €300 and bank cards in it in Żab­bar, and took the ini­tia­tive to trace its owner and hand it back to him.

The Ital­ian, Giuseppe Ri­cotta of Palermo, says that he no­ticed the wal­let as he was walk­ing in Żab­bar. The wal­let con­tained the money as well as an ID card of a per­son, Char­lot Far­ru­gia, whom he tried to con­tact via Face­book. “I even tried to make con­tact with his wife after I got no re­ply,” he said.

Later, see­ing that his mes­sage had not re­ceived any re­sponse, he went to the ad­dress listed on the ID card, only to find out that the man does not live there and it is the ad­dress of his par­ents. Mr Far­ru­gia was con­tacted via phone and the wal­let with all its con­tents was re­turned to its owner.

Mr Ri­cotta said that his first in­stinct was to keep the wal­let but he felt it was a dis­hon­est thing to do.
