Not too embarrassed then to report it, if you found 100 quid poking out of a cash machine are you honestly going to leave it there?

Good to see where your moral compass points. Honestly avoid stealing the cash of another person? Yes I would. At least you're honest about your criminal compulsions.

Probably looks like the cash machine at the Post Office and news that machine takes money back after 30 seconds, learn something new every day if your lucky.
Now that would mean that the person walking off with the cash almost certainly saw the withdrawer and if that was me and most certainly all other honest people then the correct procedure would be to call out to them and inform them of their mistake.

If you found 100 quid lying in the road with nobody about then would you be bothered to hand it in at the local nick, if police would be interested anyway.

Now if you were in the USA then beware a sting operation, reminds me of a time in the late 70's when I was strolling through a casino in Las Vegas. I picked up from the floor a diamond bracelet, for a moment I thought shall I pocket this, no I handed it in to a reluctant barman at an adjacent bar. It was only afterwards that I realised if I had not it was probably planted and with CCTV everywhere even then could have been in serious trouble.

Moral compass and common decency kicked in.

I hope every cash machine now has incorporated CCTV. A few years ago my debit card was nicked, & the scum withdrew £500 from Waitrose Queens Rd.

Thanks for your kind words.

Good news was that the bank re-imbursed me the £500.
