The man, identified as Anuar, 38, told the German news agency Bild that he contacted the company and they told him to destroy the check and then send them a photo of the proof.

After the check was disposed of, Haribo allegedly sent a six-pack of sweets as a reward.

“I thought it was a little cheap,” Anuar told a German newspaper, thinking he had saved the company millions of dollars.

A spokesperson for Haribo told Fox Business they were “very happy that Mr. Anuar contacted them” about the check.

“While we acknowledged that this was a cross check that could not be deposited by anyone other than the company to which it was addressed, we were grateful that Mr. Anuar took the time to contact us and we were happy to share with him a nice gesture as a thank you,” the spokesman said.
