(WBBH) A Punta Gorda, Florida waitress found $1,000 on a seat and tried to give it back to the rightful owner.
Instead, she accidentally gave it to the wrong person; who took the money and left.
It was all caught on camera.
On Sunday morning, the man woke up and saw himself on the news.
The man who took the money went back to the restaurant on Sunday to right his wrong.
He says it was an honest mistake - stating he also had a wad of cash in his pocket and assumed he dropped it.
"I was outside cleaning off my tables and my friend, Danny, walked out and said the guy is here. I was like no way," said Laishley Crab House waitress Samantha Knight.
Knight never thought she would see the man who walked away with the $1,000 again.
