If I found a wallet with lots of cash, I'd probably return it... well, I might check the ID photo and name first.

I once found a wallet, and returned it, but it's not a great story, because there was no cash in it. Some cards, and info, and the guy was super happy.

I lost my debit card several months ago and didn't notice until a few days later (I don't use it often). When I called I found that someone had already called it in to cancel it the day I had lost it. That could have cost me a lot. Way back I found a camera, and in another case a phone, and in both cases was able to figure out the owner from photos and names (the phone was the hardest, since it had a passcode, but the microSD card had some photos, one with a picture of some insurance paper or something with a name). The lesson: put your name and email on your devices.

How would you return it without checking the ID?

Sorry, I was making a Voat joke about checking the skin color of the owner before returning it.
