When Hunter Shamatt lost his wallet on a recent flight, he never thought he’d see it again. He was on his way to his sister’s wedding in Las Vegas and his wallet had his ID, $60 cash, a debit card, and a signed paycheck inside. He feared it was gone forever, but then he got a package in the mail with the wallet and a note inside.
The note reads: “Found this on a Frontier flight from Omaha to Denver-row 12, seat F wedged between the seat and wall. Thought you might want it back. All the best. PS: I rounded your cash up to an even $100 so you could celebrate getting your wallet back. Have fun!!!”
The note was only signed T.B., but the good samaritan has since been identified as Todd Brown, a father of five who wanted to make sure Hunter got his missing wallet back, with a little bonus cash. He says when he saw that its owner was only 20 years old, he added the extra money so he could celebrate.
“I just wanted to do the right thing, it always feels good to do the right thing,” Brown says. “It’s really not that hard to be a good person.”
