When a woman recently found a lump in the cushion of a chair she had received for free on Craigslist, she thought it was a heating pad someone with a bad back had stuffed into it.

But when Vicky Umodu from Colton in California unzipped the cover, she pulled out a dozen envelopes of cold, hard cash.

She yelled “we’ve got to call the guy” to her son, and quickly returned every cent—saying it never once occurred to her to keep even a dollar.

An ABC news local affiliate reached out to the vendor and his family, who said that they were getting rid of the chair and a matching sofa after the death of a loved one.

The money totaled $36,000, which the family believes was hidden away by the deceased as part of a saving strategy, and that there could be more dough in unseen places.

Mrs. Umodu was given $2,200 as a reward for her good deed, money she’ll use to buy a new refridgerator.
