Mobile gaming might be where the money is, but handheld gaming seems to be making a comeback.

Good Samaritan tracks down owner of lost wallet by sending message through 1p online bank transfers

Genius.

When combined, the message read: “Hi, I found your / wallet in the road / 07XXXXXXXXX / Text or call!”
