Pick it up and bring it to customer service, just like I would if I see a handbag or credit card on the ground.
Having worked in customer service in the past, I can tell you that most of the time...when money gets turned in, the employees tend to pocket it. At least at the two customer service places I worked at.
We had a man turn in a wallet with $300 in it, but no identification. I put the wallet, and all of its contents (money included) in the lost and found pile. My supervisor saw it laying there, opened the wallet, saw the money... and turned me and said, "If moneys turned in, it's up for grabs... split it?" I said no, because someone might come looking for it. She said her rule was give it till the end of the day, and if no one comes, it's hers. No one came -- she took all of the money home. There were several other times when my ex co-workers and supervisors would steal money from wallets that got turned in. Sad but true.
