KUWAIT CITY, Dec 14: KUWAIT CITY, Dec 14: The phone of the Egyptian teacher, identified as Tamer Mahrous, did not stop ringing after he published a video clip in the social media that he had found a bag containing money near the Egyptian consulate, reports Al-Seyassah daily.
In the clip he disclosed his phone number and said he had gone to the consulate to complete some official work and called on the rightful owner to collect the bag of money from him after identifying it.
Mahrous told the daily he received hundreds of calls and that bothered him because most of the calls were from false claimants. However, he went on to say, one of them, a compatriot caretaker of a building called and informed him of the exact amount that was in the bag, which he said the rent money he had collected from tenants. He added, the guard then visited him and took his money and thanked him.
The bag was handed over to the claimant in front of Salam Police Station officers. The guard, who had regained his breath, thanked the teacher who handed him the money in front of the peace district police station, thanking him for his honesty, which indicates the existence of good in this generous country.
