Gerardo Gamboa: Cab driver returns $300,000 left in back seat of cab

A cab driver returned #300,000 after he found the cash in the back seat of his cab. Gerardo Gamboa found a bag of cash in his cab after a hotel doorman pointed it out. Gamboa first thought the bag was filled with chocolate since that is what the hotel doorman suggested -- but when Gamboa looked inside, he got quite the surprise. Bundles of hundred dollar bills were inside -- and that's life changing money.

Instead of keeping the cash and taking the rest of the year off, Gamboa decided to do the right thing. He brought the money to his supervisor and said that he didn't even think about keeping the money. He said he didn't think about it for one second.

The cab driver's $300,000 find was returned to its owner. Authorities were able to link the money to a well-known poker player and days later, Gamboa received a nice little bonus -- $1,000 -- not too shabby at all.
