Pengutip sampah yg jujur, pulangkan duit NT1.1 million(RM115,659)
An honest trash collector in Taiwan returned NT1.1mil (RM115,659) which she picked up from the street to the owner.
Yang Huang Mu-dan, 67, also refused to take the three-per cent reward she was entitled to.
However, after much persuasion, she agreed to take a NT$3,000 (RM315) ang pow.
"I have not seen so much money before. If I take it, I would feel guilty for the rest of my life.
"The person who lost it must be very anxious," said Yang of Yilan, who earns a monthly household income of about NT$50,000 (RM5,254).
Her honesty has been highly praised by the police and her neighbours, most of whom said that Yang had made them proud.
Yang, who only received primary education, has been takings care of her six children alone after her husband died 25 years ago.
On Saturday morning, after collecting some recyclable items from the market, she found the bag containing the cash.
In an attempt to return the money, she rushed to the nearest police station, where she met the anxious accountant - identified only as Lin.
Lin said she was to have banked in the takings of her workplace. But as she walked to the car, her phone rang, so she placed the bag on the boot.
After answering the call, she drove away, completely forgetting about the bag.
The 37-year-old woman drove for about 1km before she realised what she had done.
She thanked Yang repeatedly.
