*NYC: Man Finds, Turns In PURSE $10,000 CASH*

A New York subway rider might have earned himself a spot for life on Santa's "nice" list after he turned in a purse with $10,000 cash he found on a train platform.

Richard Taverna spotted the blue Chanel bag Thursday morning in the station at Lincoln Center in Manhattan, he told CNN affiliate WABC.

"I picked it up just to see if there was, maybe, some kind of information, identification, inside that I might be able to get in touch with the person," he said.

Taverna found a note written in Russian. He couldn't read it -- and couldn't find a subway agent -- so he took the bag home and later found something else inside.

"I opened the envelope, and there was a big stack of money," he said. One hundred $100 bills filled the packet. Taverna laid them out on a table and snapped a photo. . .

2. Lol. Losing 10K on a Saturday, I'd say that's stressful!!! :)

"Somebody lost $10,000," he recognized, "so obviously they're probably going through a lot of duress."

5. I was thinking of the irony of the Russian note, now, and

in a place like multicultural NYC. Believe this can happen other places too.

13. Not necessarily.

There are people who simply don't trust banks or credit cards and choose to do only cash. There are those who for various reasons are unable to get bank accounts, and again may do a lot on a cash basis.
