Stranger Returns Man's Lost Wallet With A Note, But There's A Catch

A few weeks ago, when New York man Reilly Flaherty misplaced his wallet at a Brooklyn concert, he assumed it was long gone. Like anyone in the same situation, he started a new life under the mysterious alias, Jonas McFritters.

JK. He did, however, cancel his credit cards and apply for a new license like a normal person.

But, just when he thought he'd made a fresh start, a curious letter arrived in his mailbox. Upon opening the envelope, Flaherty found some of the contents of his lost wallet along with a handwritten note, which read,

I found your wallet, and your drivers license had your address so here's your credit cards and other important stuff. I kept the cash because I needed weed, the MetroCard because, well, the fare's $2.75 now, and the wallet 'cause it's kinda cool. Enjoy the rest of your day. Toodles, Anonymous.

He posted a picture of the note to his Instagram:

The handwriting looks suspiciously similar to Robert Durst's.


As NBC 4 reported, Flaherty didn't feel murderer vibes at all and, instead, found the stunt humorous. He told reporters,

If nothing else, it's something me and my friends have laughed about quite a bit.

Good for you, dude.

After hearing Flaherty's wallet saga, Kings Theatre (the venue where he originally lost it) offered him free tickets to an upcoming show. They also suggested he leave his wallet at home next time... because everyone's a comedian these days.
