Here’s a reminder to be careful when cleaning out your car – a car wash employee in Greenville, NC recently found a $1200 stimulus check in the trash.
Antonio Hernandez says he spotted the check while taking ou the trash, and managed to track down the rightful owner, a man named Charles Thompson. Thompson said he’d just moved to a new address and wasn’t expecting to get a check – but that it helped him “get back on my feet” after falling behind on rent.
The strangest part – neither man is sure how the check ended up at the car wash in the first place.
Army Veteran Charles Thompson of Greenville wondered where his stimulus check was. He couldn't believe it when a stranger showed up with it after finding it in a car wash trash can. https://t.co/oe9MvjrAh7
