"Money is nothing to me. This is what it's all about," Riyaz said about helping others.
The owner of the phone's wife, Marie, claims Riyaz refused a reward. Marie and her husband tried to offer Riyaz $80 for his act of selflessnes.
"What can I do to get you to take it?" she told Riyaz. "And the guy wouldn’t take the money."
Riyaz claims he returns cell phones, iPads and other expensive electronic devices on a regular basis. He believes his reward is knowing he did the right thing.
"If I died today what's my money going to do?" he asked. "If I do something good now then when I die good things will happen in the next life."
