A man from KwaZulu-Natal held onto a wallet for a month till he found the person it belongs to. The man was going to see his significant other when he found the wallet. In the wallet there were bank cards and several shopping account cards.
The 33-year-old Mbuso Dlovu says his significant other was working at a market at the time when she found the wallet. “She was working at a market and she found the wallet. She could not find whose it was. That is wheni said I would try to find who it belongs to,” says Mbuso Ndlovu. When he looked in the wallet, he found a bank and several other cards, he then also found a driver’s license that belongs to Charlize Tomaselli.
The person who owns the wallet says that she lost the wallet while she was at the market with her children, it probably fell when they were playing with her handbag. “It was lost. I was at the market with my kids who were playing with my handbag when it probably fell out,” says Tomaselli. The man went onto social media to contact the owner of the wallet. “I decided to look her up on Facebook and tell her that I had found the item. I messaged both her and her husband who I found on her profile, but never received her response,” says the 33-year-old according to a News24 report.
Tomasseli says she couldn’t see the message for a month until someone else sent her a message. “He sent me a message on Facebook, but I did not see. It did not pop out. I never saw it for a month,” says Charlize Tomaselli. She went on to say that she cancelled all her cards and was in the procedure of getting a new driver’s license. “someone else sent me a message and I happened to see it. I read it and was sceptical at first and thought it was a scam. However, when I contacted him, he described wallet in detail, including where all the cards are,” says Tomaselli.
The woman says she was not feeling good about it but he had them meet at a safe place. Charlize Tomaselli says,“This is how you hear about scams starting. But being the person he is, he suggested that the police station might be a good meeting point.” The 33-year-old man says he wanted her to feel calm. “I did not know how she lost her wallet. What if she was robbed and was scared? I decided to suggest the police station to make her feel better,” says Mbuso Ndlovu. The woman says there was no missing item in her wallet. When she tried giving him money, the man told her that he would rather have a job. The woman offered to share it on her social media platforms.
