Couple Finds Surprise In Desk Bought Online

Posted: Updated:
NEW HAVEN, Conn. -

A couple buys a piece of furniture off Craigslist, only to find something hidden inside.

In New Haven, Connecticut, Rabbi Noah Muroff and his wife bought a desk off Craigslist for $150 dollars.

When they pulled the desk apart to get it into their office, they found a plastic bag filled with $98,000 inside. The former owner had stuffed the money in the desk, and then forgot where she put it.

"Right away my wife and I sort of looked at each other and said we can't keep this money," Rabbi Muroff told WTNH News 8.

The couple decided that the right thing to do was give the money back. The couple later received a thank you note from the owner of the money.

"I do not think there are too many people in this world who would have done what you did," it read, in part.
