Unless those are brand new $20'S they are going to be hard to trace. No consecutive serial numbers just random numbers. Someone may retire earily and move around the country seeing the sights. Maybe its and inside job and the guards split the cash!!

I'd be figuring out what it costs to build that Slammed Chopped Merc with the LS6, Plush interior & Cold AC that I dream about building.

Now I know that Karma is a BI___, but hopefully it would belong to a crooked bank or a cigarrette company or something.

Sounds like you're having a moral dilema there Zonk. LOL



Marc

P.S. $20 bills would be impossible to trace
if they're smart not to spend large amounts
of cash at one time. I wouldn't be depositing
it into a bank account!

Mattress money for when you are having trouble making ends meet.
I used to have a little old lady come into the bank I worked in to pay her bills. She didn't have an account, just used to come in every month to pay her bills with crisp, new bills minted in 1945. They looked like they were ironed and I can guarantee they never saw the light of day until she needed to pay her bills. We called her the Mattress Money Queen.

I would have to turn it in. I could never truly enjoy what I spent it on. What's worse, if I did keep it and got caught, I would find it very difficult to face my kids. I've been teaching them that the only way to live their lives is honestly. Nope, the cost of getting nailed is way too high for me. But, it sure would be tempting...

Go on, take the money and run...... aaaaooogahhhh!!!!!

Yes, I could not wait to turn the money back in to the rightful owners, like Charles Keating or Kenneth Lay or maybe it's Dick Cheney's cash, poor fellows, I bet they had to skip breakfast.

I could live with myself quite well, with a new house, the 55 done and about 10 grand to charity.

I think I'd lay low for maybe a year and put a few "feelers" out.. First I'd drop an anonymous $10,000 cash political campaign contribution in the mail addressed to the Arnold Swarzenegger for California Governor Committee. Then I'd send Larry Flynt a paper sack full of 20's to help dig up dirt on Gary Colman. If those two deals panned out and didn't get any negative press, I'd pay cash for one of those killer Cali. street rods and drive it home, VIA Omaha, with a [mostly] clear conscience.

With a Power Tour like that, who needs HRM? It'd be champaign brunch for lunch and prime rib for dinner all the way home - forget the raffle.
