    A million dollars ain't all that much anymore.

    I'd spend it. 

    Wouldn't take much time.

    Just be a good person and turn it in. $1 million in bunch of usps packages most likely in the $9,999 range in a garbage bag is perfectly normal and whoever left it on the side of the road for their friend to pick it up is your everyday good citizen. She made him do it.

    Upon reflection, I would give it to Bimini, to start a pac, and his own peer group. It’s just the right thing to do.

    My luck they have the serial numbers on file and the first dollar bill I spent somehow it would be found out and they would track me down like a dog and throw me in jail.

    What would be the charge?

    Good question. Is there a law that says if you find money of any kind or amount that you must turn it in??

    My concern would be if it was counterfeit. I would like to think I would turn it in, but that would take a lot of thought.

    What would be the charge?

    Unfortunately, in Florida, the rules of “finders keepers” don’t apply. Theft by finding is actually a crime.

    The law

    Florida law states that if find lost or abandoned property and take it for yourself, you could face criminal charges, fines and jail time:

    • If you take a low-value item (worth less than $300), you could face a petit theft charge—the penalty for which is 6–12 months in jail and $500–$1,000 in fines.
    • If you find and take a higher value item, this is considered grand theft. The punishment for this crime is up to five years in jail and as much as $5,000 in fines.

    The cost of doing the right thing

    Being a good Samaritan comes at a price, however. If you turn over a found item, you must pay for the police department’s costs of advertising and storing it. While this represents a financial inconvenience up front, it is only temporary. If the true owner claims the items within 90 days, they must pay you back for your expenses. If the true owner does not come forward within this timeframe, you may keep the found item yourself.

     What universe is that in? Cash is still king. 
     $100 bills, have you been grocery shopping? You can burn a Cnote and not have much in the buggy. 
    I'm a single old man and I still burn a couple of $100 a month at the market - but I pay with ATM, as do most.  Some still pay by check and some with cash - small bills.  I can't remember the last time I saw someone flash a $100.....it's been years.

    I'll ask Cadman for his input.  In his business, he'd be the one on the spot to know who's paying with what.

    Evidently he has nothing to say, just likes to hang out. He's like that old timer who sits on the porch at the old store and never says much. Just grunts every once in while.

    I haven't used cash for years.  Cash back credit cards really add up.  They also provide other benefits, like not losing a million on the side of the road.

    Evidently pervert had enough to say to get banned.

    Leaving Florida... take a developer with you!

    Cashless society is just one more step towards the end of times. 

    Won't let the powers that be tattoo numbers on your forearm but you will let them control you in every other fashion. 
    Facial recognition will replace the need for the tattooed numbers or a chip under your skin.

    I had to get some gas from a welding supply store yesterday and they would not accept cash. Only wanted checks and credit cards, said the bank was closed so they couldn't deposit the cash and didn't want it sitting around. Then I went to a metal place that only takes checks and cash.

    He's making a point.
    I forget what it is.
    I think it has to do with the moderator..
    He posts his comment then he deletes it and leaves a period.
    So maybe he's on his period?

    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway.

    When I cash my check that's all they give me is 100's.  I don't deposit my check.  They use my money for 3 days til the check clears.

    Hate to tell you John, cash is not king. Try paying cash at a car dealer and you will pay more for the car. Cash is good for private sales, but most business don't care which you use and a few places won't even take cash these days for security reasons. You can tell who the old folks are when they use that expression in today's society. 

    80% of my business is credit or debit card. Only old people use cash these days. Younger people will buy a $1 drink with a debit card. it is the same in the grocery store. If you see anyone using a check under 70, it is likely going to bounce. I think nationwide the average is 30% of all sales is cash and the rest are credit or debit. 

    $100 is an interesting question. The only people I see use $100 bills is hispanics and tourists heading down I-75. Usually the tourist are older people too.

     It is usually people who actually get a paper check and don't have bank accounts that use $100 bills like Hispanics. Some of those even get paid in cash. The only other time I see them is the occasional moron who has a huge wad of money with a $100 bill on the outside and ones on the inside. He still thinks it is the 80s where that impresses someone.

    we have a couple restaurants here that are cash only.

    they do pretty good business too.
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    I spend $100 bills all the time. 

    Heck, most youngsters use their phone to pay for stuff.
