Which city has the world's most dishonest residents?


Imagine this: you're on a city break, taking in all the sites and generally having a wonderful time, when suddenly you realise you've dropped your wallet. What are the chances that you'll ever be reunited with it?

Well, it depends which city you're in. A study has found that If you're visiting Prague, for example, it's highly unlikely that your precious purse will ever been handed in, but if you lose it during a city break to Mumbai it's probable that you'll be reunited with it.

American magazine Reader's Digest carried out a study to see how honest the residents of various cities around the world really are. It dropped wallets in a number of locations, including parks and shopping centres, to see if they would be returned to their owners.

Each wallet contained £30 in local currency, business cards, a mobile phone number and a family photo.
