She had gone grocery shopping at Tesco Stargate in Kedah late one night when she lost her husband’s wallet that contained RM2,000. She and her husband, Nor Afifullah, only realised that the wallet was missing when they were on their way back home.
According to mStar, they hurriedly turned around and managed to get back to the Tesco outlet before it closed completely. Ain Fatin then approached a worker, Azhar Abdul Hamid, who was arranging trolleys in the supermarket and asked him if he stumbled upon a wallet.
To her surprise, he had found one and was about to pass it to customer service.
“I asked if he had found any wallet and he said ‘yes’. He found a black one and was about to pass to the customer service,” she said.
He could’ve just kept it for himself. RM2,000 is a lot of money!
In her Facebook post, Ain Fatin said she was amazed at Azhar’s honesty and expressed her gratitude to him for returning the wallet to her husband.
“When we checked the wallet, everything inside was untouched,” she said.
She also thanked Tesco for nurturing honest and trustworthy employees.
