Syrian refugee praised for his goodwill after handing in €150,000 which found in a second hand wardrobe

A Syrian refugee has been praised for his goodwill after he discovered a large amount of cash inside a second-hand wardrobe and turned it into German police.

The mam who was not overcome with greed Muhannad M. found €150,000 shortly after moving into his new flat in Minden, north Rhine-Westphalia, German media reports. Mr Muhannad, aged 25, allegedly found the rather large amount after he was cleaning out the second hand wardrobe after it was donated to him.

According to kind hearted Mr Muhanbed he discovered a hidden compartment where two sheets of wood had been screwed together, in which he found savings books that were worth €100,000, plus €50,000 in cash. “They were all new €500 notes. I thought it was fake money,” he told German national newspaper Bild.

After researching online for clues as to how to tell if the notes were fake, Mr Muhammad came to the conclusion that they were in fact real. He then rather graciously informed migration authorities who then told the police, explaining that his religion prohibited him from keeping the money for himself.

Mr Muhammad told the paper: “Allah would never allow me to finance my own interests with someone else’s wealth.” Reports now say local police are now trying to track down whoever put the money in the wardrobe.
