Student cleans up after finding £55,400 in bin - and is rewarded with £44,300 for his honesty Empty Student cleans up after finding £55,400 in bin - and is rewarded with £44,300 for his honesty

Here's a case when honesty pays.

A struggling student who found AU$100,000 (£55,400) in the toilets of the office he was cleaning has been rewarded with AU$80,000 (£44,300).

Chamindu Amarsinghe, who worked at the Australian television Channel Nine Network's headquarters in Melbourne, spotted multiple AU$50 and AU$100 notes in a bin in the toilets.

He told the Herald Sun: 'There was too much to count - I thought someone was playing a prank on me.

'But when I touched the notes - all yellow and green - I realised it was real money.'

The cleaner didn't think twice about reporting it to his manager who brought in a plumber.
More than AU$100,000 was found stashed in the bathroom - and AU$1200 was hidden in the pipes.

On Tuesday a magistrate ruled the cleaner, who now studies IT in New Zealand, could keep AU$81,597 of the bounty - with the rest going to the state.

Magistrate Michel Smith said: 'There’s no reason why such honesty should go unrewarded.'

Stunned Mr Amarsinghe said he was 'speechless' when he took the call to receive the news.

He added: 'I’m really, really lucky. I’m not going to waste it.'

Police have not been able to find the source of the mysterious cash.

Thanks RED for sharing.

This is my story.

In 1987, I was a student at Texas uni, USA. When I moved to Penn State uni I closed my bank account I found the bank is going to pay me the balance with an excess amount of $750.00 for which I am not entitled to have. I declined to accept the excess amount and the bank thanked me and got my contact details for further action.

My room-mate who got a similar excess payment got that money happily and blamed me for being "stupid" (another word he used for honesty).

One year later the bank was reported bankrupt.
