If you found a cashier's check worth $345,000 would you turn it in to the authorities?

Yes, absolutely!
I'd probably consider keeping it, and then turn it in.
No way, I'd keep the money.

Unless you currently have underworld acquaintances or your own money-laundering operation or an offshore bank or the improbable computer skills of a fictional character or an already cash-rich lifestyle, there is very little chance you wouldn't get caught cashing that check.

So even if your ethics wouldn't require you to turn in the check, a minimum of reflection should lead you to the same action.

You would sort of have to if it didn't have your name on it.

Cashier's checks may go missing but they are recorded and traceable, so it wouldn't be worth anyone trying to cash one in if it wasn't theirs.
