Now, this is real honesty: A peanut vendor in Capiz province was feted recently for returning a wallet filled with cash.

Erwin Permiento, 38, and wallet owner John Arthur Tan of Barangay Baybay in Roxas City met at a local radio station where the turnover was held.

Permiento, who found the wallet at the Teodoro Arcenas Trade Center where he was selling peanuts, received P5,000 from Tan.

According to Permiento, he decided to return the wallet after his in-law heard Tan over the radio talking about his missing wallet.

The wallet contained peso and dollar bills as well as personal documents and IDs.

Permiento has three children and peanut selling was their only livelihood.
