There are still good people left in the world and Wandile Ntuli is one of them. On Tuesday, July 28, the young man took to social media to share how he stuck to his moral code even if it meant giving back money.
Ntuli revealed a large sum of money was paid into his account by mistake. A complete stranger accidentally transferred R9000 (N211,128.95) into his bank account.
However, instead of going on a shopping spree, Ntuli did what was right when the rightful owner contacted him.
Taking to Twitter on Tuesday, Ntuli posted screenshots showing his honesty and he captioned the tweet:
"I sent it back guys."
Take a look at the post below:
The post quickly went viral and South Africans applauded Ntuli for doing the right thing instead of keeping the money.
Twitter user, @Mahlatse_mogale, commented:
"God bless you Wandile. What you did is a very great gesture."
Another tweep, @jeany0509, added:
"Just followed you for being a good person."

"God will bless you for this. You just gained a follower (me)."
While a lot of people praised Ntuli for his honesty, they admitted that they would not have done the same.
Social media user, @Hey_Lue, said:
"I wasn't even gonna read that text or any SMS for that matter, my phone was gonna be off immediately while I'm making withdrawal inside that bank."
