I just returned a huge amount of money to the bank

I am an uber driver here in Singapore. I have been working hard to earn a lot of money in my field of work. I got a lot of customers here. One time a bank owner, I presume, rode with me and I drop him off to this bank. After dropping him off, a lot of customers rode with me. Then I saw a bag that has been left inside the car. When I opened it, it was a lot of money, different currencies but mostly Singapore dollar. I was tempted to keep it, but I remembered that a bank owner rode with me today with this bag. And the bag's logo was the bank where I drop him off. I tried to contact him and he confirmed that it is his.

    No Name

    Not all of the time, we can just pick money from the floor. Money is not that easy to earn. It is hard for those who are below average salary. In the case of this uber driver, he found a bag that might help his future with that money. But instead he contacted the person who he thinks owns it. Not everyone will do the same as this uber driver. He can be rewarded with a consolation money and recognition for what he did as a local citizen.

    You don’t need to top up credits to send a transfer

    OCBC Pay Anyone / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    OCBC PayAnyone works in the same way as DBS PayLah. The main difference however, is that while you can still register an account with DBS PayLah without a DBS/POSB account, OCBC Pay Anyone is connected to your bank account so you need an OCBC account to use Pay Anyone. The transactions are then credited to and deducted from OCBC savings or current accounts. You don’t need to top up credits.The good thing is that the recipient you are sending money to via Pay Anyone doesn’t need the app to receive the funds. They will receive an email link whereby they can click and key in their bank information to receive the money. However, if you already bank with OCBC, you will have the option of using OCBC PayAnyone to directly pay from your OCBC savings or current accounts.
