British Teen Finds $90G in PlayStation 2 He Ordered on eBay
Wednesday, July 18, 2007

E-MAIL STORY PRINTER FRIENDLY VERSION
A British teen got more than he bargained for when he bought a PlayStation 2 on eBay.

When the package arrived at the 16-year-old boy’s Norfolk home, there were 65,400 Euros(approximately $90,200) inside, according to a BBC report. The police are now trying to trace the package back to the owner.

The boy reportedly received the PlayStation 2 on March 20. Two games were missing, and in their place was the cash.

Norfolk Police have until September 22 to hold the money before the matter goes to court. Once in court, the boy’s family could apply to have the money returned to them.

"We know that eBay is a great place to pick up a bargain, although in this case, we agree that the contents of the parcel were somewhat unusual and we will assist with any inquiries the police may wish to make," an eBay spokesman told the BBC.

If you find a deposit bag outside the bank, I could see turning that in.


But if some fool sends me 90k from an ebay sale, that shit is MINE.

No kidding. I'd be keeping my mouth shut.

Now how do you accidentally mail out 90k?

If I found $90k in a PS2 I just bought off of ebay, I'd say, "That's where I put my $90k!"

I'd seriously wait like a month and if the seller didn't contact me about it, I'd go on a shopping spree and spend a little at a time.

Wow, very lucky kid. If i found 90k, i'd post a CLS Bling thread, buy a Duc the next day, and become an arrogant prick like Mopar and rub it in ya'lls faces.

Thats what I thought at first, but what if it's connected with a crime and that money will put some bad guy behind bars?

If i got $90K on accident I would report it to the police.
I would promptly call them up and tell then that I recieved an ebay package with $20k in it on accident. Police find out why, my concience is clear and I invest wisely. Everybody is happy.
