Check your pockets before sending clothing and household goods to Goodwill, especially if you’re in the habit of storing your life savings in the pocket of a favorite suit. An 80-year-old man in Illinois with a Depression-era mistrust of banks stashed his savings around the house. That cash was in the pocket of a suit jacket that the main claims he donated to a Goodwill thrift store. He didn’t realize what had happened until a week later.
He’s embarrassed enough that he doesn’t want to be identified. While Goodwill checks donations in its warehouse, the family is offering a no-questions-asked $1,000 reward for the cash in case the suit had already been sold.
