Men lose $20,000 house deposit while picking up pizza


Two men nearly lost their house deposit while picking up pizza from a restaurant in Melbourne’s west.

The pair were filmed waiting for their meal at Pizza Tabrabane in Tarneit on Friday night.

Earlier, they had stopped off at the bank to withdraw almost $20,000.

However, one of them doesn’t notice the cash falling out of his pocket after shifting in his chair.

Luckily, the store’s delivery driver noticed the large sum and kept it safe.

The store’s owner Shakir Arafath said he was then given the money before the men returned 20 minutes later.

The pair counted the money and all $19,500 was there. They also offered Mr Arafath a reward but he turned it down.

He added it’s their money, not his. 

“Even $20,000 or $200, money is money, it’s someone’s money,” he said.
