A man from London who was cycling home from work on this week when he lost his wallet. Tim Cameron did not leave any identifying information on his wallet for anybody to trace it back to him.
When a Good Samaritan found Tim’s wallet he found a genius way to return it to him.
When Tim checked his bank account for strange activity, he found that someone deposited money into his account.
Tim noticed a series of four bank transfers for a penny each. All the four transfers came with a part of a message which, when pieced together, read: “Hi, I found your wallet in the road”, provided a phone number and ended with a request to call or text on it.
Tim shared a screenshot of the bank transfers on Twitter:
Cameron’s lost wallet had been found by Simon Byford, 30, who was cycling on the same route. Simon first tried to look for im on Facebook but couldn’t find him. He then decided to try making bank transfers, although he felt it would be a “long shot”.
“When he got in touch I just felt surprise and delight. I was expecting him to eventually but it all happened quite quickly,” Simon said to the Metro.
Tim, for his part, is full of praise for Simon. “He’s the nicest bloke ever – it’s not surprising he went above and beyond to get it back to me.”
