Oksana Milovanova, a taxi driver from the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, found a bag with 4,000,000 rubles ($70,000), left behind by a young couple in her car.
She found the money at a car wash, and returned it to the owners via a courier service.
Oksana's colleagues praised her gesture, and her boss paid her a bonus.
The only person displeased was Oksana's daughter, who thinks the cash could have helped with the family’s mortgage. But Milovanova is sure that other people's money will bring no happiness.
And by the way, Rostov-on-Don is one of the top 10 Russian cities to live in. Find out why.
