  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Donations of more than $110,000 (£67,000) have poured in from across the US for a Boston homeless man who returned a lost bag with $42,000 in it.

Glen James alerted police after he found the backpack containing cash and traveller's cheques last weekend, and the bag's owner was then tracked down.

A complete stranger later started an online fund for Mr James after reading media reports about his honesty.

Holy crap. No sense in lying, if I found that bag... I'd have me a new car.

Observation: The bag contained $42,000. Donations to Mr. James are currently $111,000. Honestly is not only admirable, it pays.
