Do be mindful of 'Dishonest misappropriation of property'!

403.  Whoever dishonestly misappropriates or converts to his own use movable property, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 2 years, or with fine, or with both.

Days of finders keepers are long gone with CCTV all around us. As I always say to my younger cousins, it's not worth it!

Though how you found it does play a part, ie:

(a)  A finds a dollar on the high road, not knowing to whom the dollar belongs. A picks up the dollar. Here A has not committed the offence defined in this section.

(e)  A finds a purse with money, not knowing to whom it belongs; he afterwards discovers that it belongs to Z, and appropriates it to his own use. A is guilty of an offence under this section.

If you really need it, keep it. Otherwise give to someone in need.

I actually did pick up $200 when I was about Secondary 1. There was literally nobody around when I picked it up in terms of $50 x 4 notes.

I was with my family back then, we were going for a lunch together.

So what happened was:

  • I paid for the lunch as a Secondary 1 kid (#BallerLife)

  • Used the remaining money to buy PS2 games

Haha yup that was life back then, carefree and fun.
