I was trying to figure out a way to do that without sounding like I was being arrogant about it, but couldn't figure out a way...

It's important (esp these days) to let it be known that Jewish people give back once in a while too. We are built on these concepts actually.

True but it could have the opposite effect.

Neh, the day before, perhaps. Not when he's returning s/t of importance to him.

A guy in my community got a few hundred bottles of hand sanitizer from a supplier of his yesterday. He posted on a few chats and sold them all to anyone who wanted at cost price, on condition that you don't resell.

Could've easily made some (or alot of) profit but just helped out alot of people without making a penny.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Not to make fun of anyone, the contrary, this thread fills my heart with Jewish pride.

But they say, Thank g-d Yosef Mokir shabbos wasn't Yeshivish otherwise he for sure would have returned the diamond to his neighbor  ;D

Someone smart once said, keep your good deeds to yourself and talk about the bad deeds that you've done,  so that the good stays with you and the bad goes away.

I would just like to add, always confirm and double verify that your not getting scammed, before returning or sending money to anyone. Stay one step ahead!
I wouldn't be surprised if they had scam like that..

Honestly I don't use venmo, but I'm saying it as a general warning, especially when dealing with high numbers.

This was a return of a mistaken payment only returned via an official request on the money sent, so I donít think there was a way to get scammed here... but you are right in general....

I don't know Venmo, but in any of these cash payment apps maybe there can be a scam: Theoretically, if the money can be clawed back before it clears, he can pull it back and still keep yours somehow.

Particularly in front of your kids.  They should get a glimpse of the good stuff you do.
