Today’s DOUCHEBAGS OF THE DAY could very well be you…if you are a heartless son of a bitch. A bunch of folks in STL are trying to claim $14,000 that was accidentally donated to a MERS Goodwill in St. Louis.
When employees at a St. Louis Goodwill found over $14,000 in cash in a box of Christmas decorations, they assumed the donor had left the money by accident, and said they would try to return it. But 15 different people have since come forward claiming the money is theirs, leading Goodwill to turn the case over to the courts. All 15 people who have called Goodwill over the past week claiming the money is rightfully theirs will have to present their case to St. Louis County Circuit Court. “There is also another lady who calls every day in tears, sure it’s her money,” MERS Goodwill CEO Lewis Chartock told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch yesterday. Goodwill manager Tina Wells was inventorying donations last Wednesday when she discovered a neatly stacked pile of cash — $14,505 in hundreds, fifties and a single $5 bill — inside a box of Christmas decorations donated the day before. After reviewing surveillance tapes, Goodwill officials figured out that the box was part of a large donation dropped off on Tuesday by two men driving a green Ford F150 pickup with a white trailer, according to the paper. The men in the video could not be identified, so officials released it to the public in the hope they may recognize something.
