Man returns $100K he found stashed in a desk he bought online

A woman who stuffed her $100,000 inheritance into a desk drawer and then FORGOT she had put it there was reunited with her cash - after the honest man she sold the desk to returned the money.

Noah Muroff bought the desk for $200 on website Craigslist, but when he got it back home it wouldn't fit through his office door.

American news channel WTNH reports Mr Muroff set about dismantling the table to make it fit, only to find a plastic bag stuffed with cash behind one of the drawers.



Rabbi Mr Muroff, from Connecticut, said: "In the bag, I could already see through the bag, it looks like a one hundred dollar bill.

"We open it up and it's full of cash. And we counted up and there's $98,000 cash sitting in the bag."

Mr Muroff phoned the desk's original owner, who said she had put her inheritance in there and then forgotten where she'd stashed the money.

Mr Muroff and his wife returned the cash to her, saying the most important thing in life was to be honest.
