A military member and JFM subscriber looking for some advice…
So I was walking my dog and of course she is sniffing everything and as she stops to smell a bush, I noticed a large envelope and a set of keys. I of course picked them up. The key ring had about 50 keys on it but no tags or anything. They looked like house keys or lock keys. I was about a mile from home so I decided to just take it all home. Was feeling a bit nervouse standing there looking at the keys and hold the big envelope.
I get home and sit at the kitchen table. The envelope was one of those large “manilla” type with the tab done up but not sealed…I opened it. Holy crap I yelled as it contained $11,275 in cash!! I was feaking out. There were some papers in there too, to which I realized where this probably came from. There is a local “slum lord” who is well known through-out the city as having a lot of properties but does not take good care of them. He has had complaints files against him on several occassions, yet the city really never does anything to him.
I am thinking of keeping the money! The reason, I feel like this guy deserves to take it in the ass for a change as he does rent to a friend of mine…this is also how I know about this guy. Is this a bad decision? I could really do a lot with this money for my family. Advice?
