Brooklyn - An 81-year-old grandmother from Brooklyn, NY, and her boyfriend found $100K in their safe deposit box at their bank, but they cannot keep it.
According to Consumerist, the couple handed the cash over to the bank's manager, because they wanted to do the right thing. The woman then went and told friends and family, who pointed out that "finders, Keepers" applied to her case, and the money should be hers.
The manager of the bank did not say what he did with the money and bank employees did not answer any questions about it.
According to NY Daily News, the woman, Kathleen Ricigliano, said that she would like the bank to be honest with her. She also said that she has been banking with the bank for about 40 years.
Kathleen said that the whole incident happened when she went to the Sovereign Bank at 4823 13th Ave. in Borough Park.
According to CBS, Sovereign Bank released a statement and only said that they have processes that are in place to ensure that belongings that are left behind by customers are handled properly, as well as in accordance with all applicable laws.
Kathleen said that the owner should be found, and they also said that they would not mind a reward. She finished off by saying that a bank employee said that the box has not been rented in more than five years.
