Reader’s Digest was conducting a study to see what the most honest city in the world was. They dropped wallets in 16 cities around the world in an attempt to find out how many would be handed in. The wallets contained a card with a name and phone number, a family photo and $50.

Helsinki was the most honest city of all the cities where wallets were dropped, with 11 of the wallets returned with everything in it. New York City tied with Budapest for third, with eight returned. Lisbon, Portugal, was the least honest; only one wallet was turned in.

Here are the rest of the cities where wallets were dropped:

1.     Helsinki, Finland – 11 out of 12 wallets
