Haribo Gifts Man Candy After He Finds Company's $4M Lost Check

But he called the reward โ€œa bit cheap.โ€

A man in Germany recently stumbled upon something surprising on his walk home.

According to German newspaper Bild, the man saw a piece of paper on the ground, only to discover that it was a check for a massive sum of money.

The check was made out to candy company Haribo, issued by one of their retailers for the amount of 4.6 million euros.

The man โ€“ referred to as Anouar G. โ€“ contacted the candy company who told him to destroy the check.

Later, he received a โ€œthank you gift boxโ€ from Haribo which included six bags of the companyโ€™s products โ€“ including candy.

Anuoar G. told Bild he found the thank you gift to be โ€œa bit cheap.โ€

Haribo said the check was crossed, which means it could not have been presented for cash at a bank and only the company could have redeemed it.

According to Business Insider, Haribo says they sent Anuoar G. their standard thank you package.
