Honest Manila airport taxi driver returns $3,000 left in his cab
In 2018, a Manila airport taxi driver was praised for returning $3,000 left in his cab by a returning overseas worker.
Virgilio Legaspi had flown home from his job in Saudi Arabia and caught a taxi from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
After dropping his customer at a bus station, Golden Star taxi driver Gilbert Punzalan was on his way back to the NAIA when he noticed some thick white paper wedged into space next to his handbrake.
Wrapped inside the white paper were 30 $100 bills — equivalent to about 150,000 pesos. The name of the owner, Virgilio Legaspi, was written on the paper.
