Who was kind lady who returned my cash?

One year after a stranger showed him a random act of kindness, Carlos Frias is still looking to show his appreciation.

Mr Frias, a restaurant manager at the Mid Ocean Club, was in Hamilton last February when he attempted to withdraw $500 from an ATM machine in Washington Mall. After three unsuccessful attempts at the malfunctioning machine, the married father-of-two gave up and headed into Butterfield Bank.

“No more than five minutes later, a beautiful Bermudian lady with a big smile came along,” Mr Frias said. “She was out of breath and told me that a few seconds after I'd left, the machine had given out $500.”

Despite thanking the mystery woman for returning his money, the St George's resident realised that, in the kerfuffle, he had forgotten to ask her name.

He has since tried to discover the woman's identity through friends, family and Facebook — but all to no avail.

“I was very surprised and very impressed by this young lady.

“It's very hard in these days to find honest people,” he said.

“As a thank you, I would like to send her flowers, or buy dinner for her and her partner.”

Do you know the woman who helped Mr Frias?

If so, please contact him via Facebook.
