A grateful husband shared a story on social media about the honesty of a stranger. His wife had lost her wallet in a mall over the weekend and a kind stranger tracked her down to return it.
John Van Der Riet said that his wife lost the wallet in Century City over the weekend. She stopped all her cards and ordered new ones at the bank. The wallet also included her ID and going to Home Affairs for a new ID was not going to be a pleasant errand.
