...to do with it.
Here are three options to help you decide:
1) You send the wallet with the money back to Bill Gates.
2) You get the money to help a relative who you dislike and is in serious debt.
3) You get the money and keep a secret from your whole family so that your relative in financial trouble does not know about it.
Great answer, Dan.
You are absolutely right as to the size of the wallet and the amount of money in it. However, as this is just a hypothetical scenario, we could have even $ USD 10 million dollars in it.
Al right, your answer clearly implies that you are thinking about ethical and moral issues. What if you got the money, donated it to one or more charity organizations and after that, you let him know that you did a good action? After all, Bill Gates's USD 1 million is money to buy candies for children.
As for your puzzle, it's a hard one, too. But I would choose to tell the person to get rid of the money and let them know that the police are on their way. Then, it`s up to him to decide what to do.
I could also not say anything to the person since he's a human being acting according to his human instinct. The rest, the police decide what to do.
After reading your situation, the first thing that struck in my mind was how on earth one can carry $1bn in his wallet. I had no idea the what is the biggest US bill but thanks to @Dan who mentioned and analyzed the situation vividly. Well, it's the 1st one for sure but the question asked by @Dan was a bit tough. Maybe I chase him but the fact is, I'm not that good at running:)
@Yvona, I think after taking a look inside the wallet, we may get some clue like for example, his picture with his wife or daughter. Good question:)
