    what are the chances of getting my $$$ back??

    so, as my fiance & i left disneyland last night, we noticed that somebody placed a sign on our car. i grabbed it off the windshield, thinking it was an advertisement & threw it in the backseat.

    i didnt look at the letter until i reach home, here in San Diego. the letter is handwritten & says "Hi, I Hope You Didnt Drop Any Money, But If You Did - It's Waiting At The Lost + Found For You"

    i immediatley went thru my pockets from my pants, sitting on the washer & noticed i was short $60. if i was to call DL with where i was parking & the times i was there, what do u think the chances are of me getting my $ from the lost + found??

    Well...if they left you a note and really did take it to lost and found then it sounds like they were honest people and I would think that you would get your money. I hope you do...call them immediately do not wait...good luck and may God bless those honest people. Let us know what happens

    Usually they will ask you some questions about it like how much it was and in what bills also they might ask where you lost it, but if the guy who turned it in wasn't sure (like he said he found it in the parking lot but couldn't remember what level or row) they might not ask you that. Basically they just wouldn't want someone who saw the guy pick it up to run into lost and found to claim the money.

    A few years ago, we had left the resort driving home to NorCal. About an hour and a half in, my youngest discovered that she had left one of her prized stuff animals behind, and was beside herself with grief. Yes, she was and still is a drama queen. But, that's fodder for another time.

    Anyway, my wife got on her cell and called the Disneyland Hotel and explained the situation. She was told that they would do everything they could to find the toy. While I didn't hold out a lot of hope its return, about three days later, we received a package in the mail from DLH. The prized stuff animal had returned home, and one little girl will be a fan of Disneyland for the rest of her life.

    So I agree, it at least worth the attempt.

    Re: what are the chances of getting my $$$ back??

    i called. no such luck, guys.

    they pretty much told me “yeah…. um… for money claims------ usually it’s a substantial amount (mine wasnt TOO MUCH, but it wasnt TOO LITTLE) & is in an envelope or is rolled up, so that the person who lost it can claim it. but I don’t show any money lost in your area for the amount you claimed.”

    :shrug:
    thanks for the suggestions tho!!!!


    anyway, yesterday was the very 1st time we took the rafts to tom sawyer island. it would'a been really interesting if there wasnt so many little kids jumping off of cliffs & landing on my ankle. lol. but after we ate, went shopping, did that + haunted mansion - we decided to leave. only there for around 3 hours. the kids just burnt us out. lol

    They could have just written their phone number on the note, kept the cash and then mailed it to you when you called. That's how I would have done it.

    Call again in a day or two. The guy who left the note might just assume that if he turns the money in it goes to the lost and found, but if he handed it to someone in the parking lot it might not make it to lost and found right away. Each location is responsible for dropping off their lost and found items each night, but I think the parking lot late shift actually gets off after the lost and found is closed so they might not make it right away.

    I lost a camera there last year and called Lost and Found. It wasn't the most efficient experience, "yes we have it" "no we don't" on several occasions, but they did finally find it.

    Maybe calling a couple of times so you speak with different employees, will net better results.

    Maybe the people who found your money kept the money and left a fake note.
