A 39-year-old woman in Quang Tri Province, situated in north-central Vietnam, demonstrated honesty and integrity by returning VND20.5 million (US$842) that she found at a local automated teller machine (ATM) to its rightful owner.

At about 4:30 pm on Wednesday, Nguyen Thi Vinh reached the ATM booth of Military Bank (MB) in Khe Sanh Town, Huong Hoa District, Quang Tri Province to withdraw cash, local police reported.

However, she failed to insert her bank card into the ATM. A while later, VND20.5 million ($842.2) in cash came out.

She took the money and waited at the ATM booth for 20 minutes but no one returned to receive the money.

On Thursday, she brought the cash to the police station in Huong Phung Commune, Huong Hoa District, asking officers to look for the owner.

Police handed over the money to MB’s transaction office in Khe Sanh Town the next day.

According to the transaction office, a customer reported to the bank that at 4:25 pm on Wednesday, he deposited VND20.5 million through the ATM but did not receive any notification if the transaction was successful or not.

MB has received the money from the Huong Phung Commune police and would give it back to its rightful owner.
