A Hingham woman is being praised for bringing a bank envelope back to the police without looking inside to discover it was a prank.

According to police reports, the woman came across a Citizens Bank envelope labelled $5,500.00 on Saturday in a Hingham parking lot and, without opening it, handed it in to the police station, WCVB reported.

"We opened it but it actually contained newspaper that was cut up to look like cash with a note inside saying it was a prank," Hingham police said in a post to its Facebook page, pointing out that the woman was not aware that it had been a prank and could have easily peeked inside.

"It's always refreshing to see honest people. We know there are so many more honest people than dishonest ones, but in our line of work, we don't usually meet them."

It did not take long for Facebook users to weave their own sense of humor into the story.

"Smart lady. $5500 richer and got y'all duped, too....m-a-y-b-e....," Mark Bell commented on the post.

"Good story from you folks, HPD...Kudos to the lady. I just thought I'd add a wrinkle to it. :p"

Robert Eve could not resist making a jab at the scenario.

"Little did the pranksters know, their fingerprints are all over the paper and Hingham PD is sending them a ticket for littering."

There are various other reports of similar incidents.

A Colorado woman handed over $600 found in an envelope in Hunterdon County and then turned down a reward, Leigh Valley Live reported.

In a separate incident, a woman came across $500 in the streets of Annapolis and handed it in to police, who were able to return it to the rightful owner, according to The Capital Gazette.
