"We up here at the bowling alley, she found Nelly's bag. And guess what she did? She gave it back," he said.
The man then turned the camera to the seated woman and inquired about what she got in return for her act of kindness.
"What did they do? Show me what they did," he inquired as she laughed.
She refused to respond, and he answered himself by yelling:
"They gave her 100 dollars! They gave her $100 for giving him back $300,000."
The video garnered over half a million views and caught Nelly’s eye.
"Super lie," the singer wrote in the comments section.
However, his sentiments did not stop some social media users from making fun of the woman.
"Nelly would have gotten a prayer from me and that's all... Bless her heart I guess."
