A rabbi bought second-hand desk on Craigslit that had $98,000 inside. Rabbi Noah Muroff contacted the previous owner and returned all the money -- her late parents' inheritance money. The owner gave the rabbi $3500 as a "thank you" and returned the money he paid for the desk. Would you have returned the $98,000?

    Times are tough, but I don't think I could live with myself if I didn't give it back. She may need it more than I do. Giving it back is the right thing to do.

    It's sooooooo tempting to keep it. That's a lot of money! I mean I'm voting to Give it Back, but the more I imagine that it happened to me, the more I want to keep it.

    I'm just being honest here... but I'd keep it. If it's there, then it's meant for me. A lot of you guys are saying you'd give it back, but I'm pretty sure you're not being honest with yourselves. Just really image $98,000 in a desk YOU bought. Everything in the desk is yours, the trash, mold, papers, whatever. I don't know about you, but I could make good use of that money. I may give some of it back after I've spent it. But how do I even know that the money belongs to the person who sold me the desk? I mean, who would forget that kind of money? If it is hers and she forgot it, then she obviously doesn't need the money. Yea, I'd keep it mostly. And if I start to feel guilty, give back some of it. Just being honest...
