As part of a project carried out by Reader’s Digest, wallets were dropped in 16 cities around the world in an attempt to find out how many would be handed in. Each wallet contained a contact number, a family photo, business cards, coupons and the equivalent of $50 or £31.

Mumbai, India was the second most honest city in the world with nine out of 12 wallets getting handed in, while Lisbon, Portugal was the most dishonest with only one wallet being returned to its owner.

The magazine selected the cities and then asked its reporters to ‘lose’ the wallets in public places, such as shopping centres, car parks and on pavements. A total of 192 wallets were dropped with 12 ‘lost’ in each city.

  1. 12 wallets is just too small a sample for a city of 18 million. It maybe heartening to know that there are still some good people to be found in the big cities but I wouldn’t take the whole survey seriously.

  2. This is very interesting. Sadly I had my wallet stollen in Budapest, Hungary, #3, but of course this is not exact science! Namaste. . . . .
