Man’s wallet returned after 24 years

moneyA man’s wallet has been handed back to him complete with its entire contents 24 years after he lost it.

 

Shrivel – as the guy is known on social news and entertainment website Reddit – was stunned to receive a “creepy” phone call from a man claiming to have discovered his purse, which he lost in 1989 in North Carolina.

 

He wrote on the website: “I get a phone call. The voice at the other end asks my name and says, ‘You don’t know me but I know your name birthday, height, weight and address.’

 

“Bit of a creepy way of introducing himself, but I figure I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.”

 

Despite the unusual call, Shrivel was reunited with the item, which contained its original contents including his old library card and student card.

 

He said: “It was the only wallet I’ve ever lost in my entire life and I had assumed it was gone forever.”
