A man from Indiana, USA, was surprised when he was mistakenly paid $5,000 during his last visit to McDonald’s.
Josiah Vargas had ordered a Sausage McMuffin on January 16, as he usually does.
He was handed a bag emblazoned with the company logo to pick up the order at the drive-thru window. Everything pointed to what was inside the sandwich.
He soon realized there was no sandwich in the bag, so he stopped a short distance away.
In fact, $5,000 of cash was inside. He quickly went to inform the staff about the availability of the amount.

Fortunately for the employees, Josiah was of good will and returned the full amount to the branch officials.
“I gave them money because I’m a good person,” he said on the TikTok site.
How could this incident have happened? A drive-thru employee apparently took the money from him. In order to properly count the cash, the staff had put everything looted from the cash register into packaging.
“It is a gift from God. I really want to hug you,” said an employee.
