Man Finds Lost Check for $48 Million, Gets ‘Cheap’ Thank-You Gift From Company

A man in Germany found a lost check for 4.6 million euros made out to confectionery Haribo received what he thought as a “cheap” thank-you gift of candies, the Bild reported last Thursday.

Anouar G., was on his way home from visiting his mother when he saw a piece of paper fluttering on the ground, according to the Bild. He picked it up and saw it was a crossed check for 4,631,538.80 euros, or $4.8 million, made out to Haribo from German supermarket chain Rewe.

G. took the check to a Rewe store and was told that it was a printing error and that he could have a packet of Haribo gummy sweets as a thank-you, the Bild said.

“I’m not a poor person, but I would have expected a little more than just a packet of sweets,” G. told the Bild. “A voucher or something like that would have been more appropriate.”

A Rewe spokeswoman told the Bild that the company was investigating the incident.

It’s unclear what happened to the money represented on the check.
