What would you do if you found a wallet with more than 100,000 baht in cash? At a Big C in Chanthaburi, near the Cambodian border, a maid found a wallet with thousands of baht in cash while cleaning a bathroom. She decided not to pocket the cash and returned it to the owner. Even the wallet’s owner expected it to be gone.

Wachira Charoenan shared her gratitude on Facebook. She said the wallet was left behind by accident in the Big C’s bathroom and didn’t realise it was gone until she was driving off. The Burmese maid, Tin Tin Shu, found the wallet and told her employee in case the owner came looking for it.

“Thank you to the Burmese maid and employees at the Chanthaburi Big C for such good care. I am very impressed and already expressed my appreciation as a gift for the maid. I thought the wallet was going to be lost forever, as there was a lot of cash inside.”

On another note, who goes shopping in Big C with 100,000 baht cash?

    I wish they addressed the good hearted Cambodian woman with her name in honour to her honest gesture and not as a “maid” instead.

    Hmmm… The woman doesn’t know “The maid’s” name?

    Section 1324 of the Thai Civil and Commercial Code provides that the finder of lost property can claim a reward of 10% of the value of the property up to 30,000 baht and 5% on the additional value. I hope Tin Tin Shu knew this. It would be a nice New Year’s bonus.
