A social media user identified as Irene Obeng has claimed she returned GHC2,000 (R5k) to a Mobile Money vendor after she was handed double the amount she went to withdraw.
In an awe-inspiring post on Facebook, the honest lady detailed how a Mobile Money vendor mistakenly gave her extra GHC2,000 (R5k) when she went to withdraw the same amount.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Irene Obeng disclosed that she went to withdraw GHC2,000 (R5k) but ended up leaving with GHC4,000 (R10k) after the ‘momo’ vendor mistakenly added the extra amount.
She said she had budgeted GH1,600 for her errand on the day the incident happened.
''My errands budget was around Gh1600 today so I decided to withdraw Gh 2000 from MoMo…After withdrawal, I rushed to check out something, upon returning, she handed 2 bundles of 20 cedis notes to me, I quickly took it and pushed it into my purse without counting,'' Irene disclosed.
She further recounted that about five hours into her errands, she checked her purse and noticed she had still not touched the GHC2,000 (R5k) she withdrew from the Mobile Money vendor.
''I was so confused and started recollecting and recalculating all the stuffs I had purchased to see where the lapse was.... then booom it clicked to me that the MoMo vendor gave me 2 bundles (4000 cedis) instead of 2000 cedis,'' she said.
Irene noted that without thinking twice, she paused her errands, trekked all the way back and handed over the GHC2,000 (R5k) to the vendor and prompted her that she was supposed to give her just a bundle, not two.
''The lady just started trembling and crying, I only smiled at her and took my leave.''
Irene evidently has a rare persona of individuals operating in the realms of high integrity, morality and unmatched stands for ethical dealings.
The young lady shared her laudable show of integrity on social media and has been commended for enabling herself to become a shining example for many.

She shared her personal experience saying, ''same thing happened to me on 18th march 2020 it was market day at Enchi and was buying food stuffs when my money got finished, so I had to withdraw money from momo... I told the lady I will redraw 270gh and my money was given to me.... A woman wanted me to buy a basket of cocoyam from her, so I dis not check the money as I made payment to the woman I was still having excess money, so I checked and I noticed the lady gave me 320gh instead of my 270gh. I went back and gave her the 50gh, and she was surprise and thanked me.''
''You bare the same first and surname with that of my kid sister and trust me out of all the children she’s the honest and humble one am not surprise at you miss Obeng Irene you’re just amazing like her,'' WaNne AJ said in reaction.
Yaayaa Addai said: ''God bless you. Someone would have kept it and say it's an answered prophecy.
By the way a bundle of any note is 5 packs of it. So a bundle would have been 10,000 so that was a pack or packet of 20 cedi notes.''
