Homeless Man in Thailand Returns a Lost Wallet and Gets a Life-Changing Reward

Woralop, 44, was a homeless man in Bangkok had only nine baht (26 cents) to his name and was sleeping at the subway station when he saw a man drop an Hermès wallet with about 20,000 baht (578 USD) and credit cards inside.

The Hermès wallet full of cash and credit cards was immediately handed into the local police station.

According to reports, Waralop tried to give the wallet back, but couldn’t catch up with the man in time. Despite barely having any money, instead, the honest samaritan turned in the wallet to the local police station just as he had found it.

The wallet ended up belonging to Nitty Pongkriangyos, 30, the owner of a steel factory in Bangkok. Nitty was so thankful, he offered Woralop a job, which also comes with employee accommodation. Nitty’s girlfriend, Tarika Patty, told the media, “Woralop is such a good example that being kind really does pay off. When you’re kind to another, another is kind to you.”
