In some cases, yes, but unfortunately it is not so common.
Sometime ago, a friend of mine and me, found a lost wallet in a cab and asked the taxi driver to go to the address we found in the ID we found inside. The man asked us how much money was in there, all eager. I lied and said no money. He said, it was a pity, would have been some money, we could have that split and throw the rest of the contents through the window. He sounded all natural about it... ugh
He took us to the address, the lady was happy to recover her wallet and we returned home.
150 Euros, and a couple of credit cards. I know I would be happy to recover my things if something similar happens to me.
I see it like this: Things that come up so easily, easily go away

How many people, do you believe, are truly "good" people at heart, and would behave well even if there's no consequences for not being good?
In simpler terms, let me use an example:
You're in a public place when, unbeknownst to you, your wallet falls out of your pocket, in clear sight of John Doe, who is a random stranger. Do you think most people, in John Doe's place, would return the wallet to you? What percentage of people would not do anything at all? More than that, what's the chance that John would just take the wallet for himself?
Keep in mind that (in this hypothetical situation) there are no rewards for doing the right thing other than the feeling of being a good person.
Do you believe most people are "good" at the heart, Newgrounds?
