Ever brush off leaving a few coins in that airport security checkpoint tote – the one you put your shoes and such in to be scanned? Well, it adds up. To the sum of about $926,000 last year at US airports alone.
New York, San Francisco, Miami, Vegas, and Dallas recorded the most lost cash, The Associated Press reports.
$5,000 alone was left behind at Pittsburgh International. TSA officials say money is best stowed in a carry-on, not your pockets. Adding that travelers can
contact an airport’s TSA lost-and-found to report lost money.
Travelers left behind nearly a million dollars at U.S. airport security checkpoints last year, including about $19,000 in foreign currency. https://t.co/cY5iCjXOOv
