It’s a great idea, and unique. It’s admirable that you want to return the money and encourage others to also return the money (after a theft).


Laguna, CA


The idea of creating a way for people to voluntarily return property they stole could help repay merchants who suffered the loss, and help an individual who is trying to make amends for a crime he realizes he never should have committed.

Honorable Doug Haubert

Long Beach City Prosecutor


Es un buen idea. Ayudando alguien para no hacer cosas malas como robar.
