Care in announcing a lost object


When announcing that one has found an item, one should not be too specific - lest someone falsely claim the item as his own. One should announce that he discovered a coin, or a garment, or a document, and then the claimant will have to identify its unique characteristics in order to get it.

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 267:4)

Have a great day,
