In Saudi Arabia, some pranksters put packs of money on the roadsides, especially those with less hustle. When someone picks it up, they follow them and ask them to empty their wallets, or they shall call the police.
Suante Aguirre, an OFW in Saudi Arabia, recently parked his car and witnessed a pack of money on the roadside. Even though he had no intentions of picking it up, he stared at the bundle of money for a while and then left.
He must have taken only a few steps from his car when two foreigners approached him. They inquired about the bundle of money.
They wanted to call the police: Even when he repeatedly assured them that he did not have that bundle of money with him, they threatened that if he didn’t show them his wallet, they would call the police.
Yet, Aguirre told them that if they did not stop, then he would call the police. Then, the two ran away and grabbed their money from the roadside. They must be now in search of new victims. So be careful, guys!
Aguirre went to social media to share his experience and warn others about these pranksters.
What to do if you find something on the road? The religion Islam dictates a complete code of conduct if we find something on the roadside. Remember that you don’t own the goods you collected from the roadside.
