A Good Samaritan in Massachusetts Returns Purse with a whopping $8000 in Cash!
Vacationing can be fun and interesting. That is, until disaster strikes. It can be anything from an accident, to being robbed, to forgetting one’s important belongings at a restaurant. More often than not, when such a situation occurs, the tourist’s holiday is normally cut short, and they are usually left stranded. At times, they get so desperate that they have to phone home, or report to the nearest embassy of their native country in order to seek assistance.
This would have been the case of a tourist who mistakenly left her ‘prized’ purse at a Dunkin’ Donuts in Massachusetts, if it wasn’t for the presence of a Good Samaritan at the restaurant.
The Good Samaritan
Mark Trocchio, who is one of the drivers of a company known as corporate shuttles, had stopped by the Dunkin’ Donuts located in Cambridge for a work-related pickup, when he discovered the purse left isolated.
In a press statement, Trocchio said that upon getting to the purse, he discovered that not only did it contain a number of credit cards, but also held plane tickets inside.
Plus see this; the purse had a whopping $8000 in cash!
While quite a number of us might have taken flight after coming across a goldmine like that, only to make it their own, Trocchio opted to find the purse’s true owner.
Granted, he might have made the decision of fleeing with the bag had it been his past years when he battled with alcoholism for over a decade. All in all, he commented that he was just thrilled that he managed to save the tourist’s vacation.
Luckily for the said tourist, Trocchio managed to immediately identify her through her identity cards before she left the Dunkin’ Donuts.
A Grateful Tourist
In gratitude, the tourist in question proceeded to give Trocchio a reward, before later contacting the number shown on Trocchio’s shuttle to ensure that his employers knew fully of the amazing, kind, and honest deed he had just done.
How Purse Thieves Target Unsuspecting Women
A case such as Trocchio’s is a rare occasion, because the reality is that quite a number of lost purses end up missing, forever. As a matter of fact, they specifically target unsuspecting women looking to milk them dry for all they’ve got. The worst part is that these thieves do not feel the slightest bit of remorse about what they have done because to them, it’s just business as usual. That being said, here are some of the case scenarios that these purse thieves normally look out for.
- Ladies who like to put their purses on the rear of the chair or on the floor next to them
- A lady who has not properly placed her wallet and it is sticking out of its purse.
- A lady who leaves her purse unattended in a shopping cart.
- A purse that was left in a car that was not locked.
- A lady that happens to leave her purse on a counter in a restaurant, or a fast food restaurant.
- A purse that has been left unattended inside a coat, on a coat rack.
- Last but not least, a lady that took the wrong turn and is walking all alone in an isolated street.
Keeping this in mind, it is vital that one looks out for such situations beforehand, and avoid narrow private streets where they could be ambushed by these thieves. As the sages say, ‘it is better to be safe than sorry.’
