In a video posted on Thanh Nien, a young man walks the streets of Danang and Hoi An, “accidentally” dropping his wallet on sidewalks, in supermarkets, at the cinema and in the park. He wanders away, seemingly unaware of the situation.

Of the 40 wallets dropped, the vast majority were returned. Locals gave back 34 of the dropped wallets, alerting the young man of the fallen item immediately. Unfortunately, the six remaining wallets were pocketed by witnesses.

Still, the group concludes that 85 percent of local residents are honest, wrapping up the video with a simple message: “Think for yourself.”
