Cabbie Returns $900,000 in Back Seat to Vacationing Couple

by at . Comments

A Singapore cabbie has received commendation and a reward after returning $900,000 in cash he found in the backseat of his cab to its owners.

Yes, nine hundred grand in cash. That is one loaded passenger ... and one honest cab driver.

Honest Cabbie

Sia Ka Tian, 70, who has worked as a taxi driver in the Asian city-state for more than 30 years, said he had no desire to keep the mysterious windfall.

“The money is unimportant to me. It doesn’t belong to me, so how can I use it?” he said.

Sia found the bag after dropping off a vacationing Thai couple at a shopping center Monday. He knew there was a lot of money in it, but didn't bother to count it.

If you're not gonna keep it, why bother right?

Instead, he immediately turned it in to the lost-and-found office at his employer, ComfortDelGro transport company, who the couple had already contacted.

Sia was waiting for them when they arrived to claim their cash.
