Default Has anyone found Hong Kong money?

I had to change my in cab filter that is behind my glove box in my 2003 Honda Civic. When the glove box was pulled out I found a little red envelope next to the filter box. When I opened it inside there was a coin and $50 Hong Kong currency. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else and why was it put there? Was it for good luck or what?

If it's real HK currency, take it in to a currency exchange and get your $6.50 US and consider it a free filter.

Is your car used? If so, maybe the previous owner set it there while changing the filter and forgot about it. If you've always owned the car, that is odd. Maybe when you brought it in shop for repair or service someone left it there. Who knows!

It is a tradition between Oriental people. I got one from someone I did some work on their car. Mine was red with some weird character in gold on the front. I had it in my tool box for about 5 years and then one day a Chinese coworker said that it was for luck and people put money in it. When I opened it there was $200 in it. I felt bad because I did alot of work on her car and all she gave me was that red envelope. I thought I worked for free so I bad mouth her every chance I got and the whole time she gave me $200...I felt bad...but I felt much better when I spent the money...LOL
