An Uber Driver Made An Immigrant’s Day After Returning His Lost Wallet With $3,000

It sounds like an episode of “What Would You Do?” You’re an Uber driver and a passenger leaves their wallet in your car. Inside, you find $3,000 in cash. That scenario is exactly what happened to Chicago-based Uber driver Jose Figueroa, who after finding a passenger’s wallet, went above and beyond to return it to the rightful owner. Figueroa’s passenger was an immigrant from the Ukraine who had literally just landed in the States. The cash was the Ukrainian man’s life savings.

Figueroa says it was tempting to see so much money, but he chose to be a hero instead. He returned to the apartment where he dropped the passenger off, spoke to the passenger’s sister and returned the wallet.

In case you’re wondering, Jose was rewarded 100 dollars for his honesty. Way to go!
