If you've been feeling a little crusty around the edges lately and lost your faith in mankind, we have just the story for you.
Hunter Shamatt was headed to Vegas to attend his sister's wedding. He caught a Frontier flight from Omaha, Nebraska to Las Vegas but upon arriving in Vegas to begin the fun, he realized he lost his wallet.
Not wanting to put a damper on the wedding weekend, Shamatt kept the loss to himself. In his wallet he had $60, his $400 paycheck, his ID and and ATM card.
Shamatt borrowed a bit of money from his parents to enjoy the mini vacation.
Shamatt tried calling the airline but no one had returned the wallet and he figured it was probably gone forever. After the wedding and a return flight home, which included a stressful hour long interview with the airlines to be allowed back on the plane without his ID, Shamatt finally arrived at home in South Dakota.
The next day a package also arrived. In it, his wallet, but that's not all.
Shamatt's mother took to Facebook to share with her followers the unexpected surprise that came alone with her sons wallet. In the post she writes:
"On our way to Vegas for my daughters wedding last week, Hunter lost his wallet. Unfortunately it had 60.00 cash, his identification card, his signed paycheck and his debit card. Once we realized the wallet was missing, we called Frontier Airlines to see if someone turned it in. After fearing the worst that everything was gone, tonight Hunter received a package in the mail with his wallet and a letter signed with only initials. On the envelope a return address out of Omaha from Applied Underwriters. We would love to thank the individual personally if we could find him or her. Please help share this post so we can find this amazing person."
The note that came with the wallet simply read:
Found this on a Frontier flight from Omaha to Denver - row 12, seat F wedged between the seat and wall. Thought you might want it back. All the best."
P.S. I rounded your cash up to an even $100 so you could celebrate getting your wallet back. Have Fun!!!"
Ahh, we needed a little good news.
