Girl Rewarded With Justin Bieber Tickets For Returning Purse

A Scarborough, Maine girl who found a purse containing more than $4,000 at the local Sam's Club was rewarded with free tickets to a Justin Bieber concert.

John and Jennifer Jacobson of Scarborough said their daughter, Abbie, was visiting the local Sam's Club with her father in April 2012 when she saw the small purse. Upon opening the purse, she was astounded to find that it contained more than $4,000 in $100 bills, a debit card and a cache of gold rings, bracelets and earrings.

According to police, the debit card was the only identifying item in the purse, which the family turned in to police. The family called the bank that issued the card, the Bank of Maine, and officials then contacted the purse's owner, Ra Rim.

The head of the Bank of Maine that issued the debit card read in a local paper that Abbie is a huge fan of pop star Justin Bieber. So he decided to reward the girl's honesty with free tickets for her whole family to Bieber's sold-out concert this fall in Boston. The Marriott Hotel in Boston has offered to put the family up for free when they attend the show.
