COMMENTS”I agree if you found the money “on the ground or in some toilet etc” but if you found the money in the ATM area you shouldn’t be keeping it. It’s because ATM area is NOT a public place,” responds a third person on YouTube. “In some countries, it is a crime to keep money found inside the ATM area. First, you know the money does not belong to you. Second, the money is in the vicinity of the bank,” explains another.
