Guess What This Fruit Seller Did When He Found A Wallet With RM3,000 Cash Inside

The honesty of a fruit seller in Pantai Remis for returning a wallet with RM3,000 cash belonging to a customer here should be emulated.

Abdul Jalil Lazim, 46, used his Facebook account to locate the owner of the wallet by uploading the individual's identity card and driver license found in the wallet.

The father of five said he suspected the owner's wallet must have accidentally dropped out after enjoying some durian and rambutan fruit around 8pm at his store.

"As I could not find any contact numbers, I uploaded a picture of the person's IC and driver's license, Mazlina Yusoff via Facebook.

"About an hour later, Mazlina, 42, came back to the stall with her husband Aman Shah Abbas, 49, to retrieve the wallet," he said when contacted by Kosmo!.

Meanwhile, Aman who now lives in Shah Alam said he only knew about the matter after being informed by his friends. Recalling back, he remembered stopping at the fruit stall after sending one of his children to a nearby college.

"My wife and I are not aware that the wallet and money had fallen out until I was contacted by friends. I thank Abdul Jalil and praises him for his honest actions,” Aman added.

We at Malaysian Digest praises Abdul Jalil for his honesty and hope it serves as an inspiration to all our readers on doing good deeds.
