It turned out the owner was a Pakistani visitor who stayed in the country for only 15 days and then left.

When a taxi driver in Ajman handed over a wallet with Dh14,000, First Assistant Omar Mussabah Al Kabbi of the Al Madinah police station knew he had to find the owner.

It turned out the owner was a Pakistani visitor who stayed in the country for only 15 days and then left.

“He dropped his wallet in the taxi while traveling back to his home country. It was a very difficult mission to track him down,” Al Kabbi said.

The wallet contained a bank card and an account number, an ID, and the cash.

“I decided to reach out to his bank which has a branch in Abu Dhabi. I contacted the bank manager, explained the situation to him, and requested him to use the account number to provide us with the contact information of the man,” the officer recalled.

“After some time, with a daily follow-up with the bank, the manager finally managed to find his phone number in Pakistan. We called him and asked him if he lost his wallet. He said he left it in the taxi and, because the flight was ready to board, he didn’t have time to search for it.”

As soon as Al Kabbi confirmed that the person he spoke to was, indeed, the wallet’s owner, he asked him how he wanted to receive his belongings.

“He gave the name of his friend who resides in Dubai. He came and received the wallet. He thanked the police for the efforts and the help that he never expected.”
