Cash in a flash

A 16 year old boy from Norfolk got more than he bargained for when he bought a PlayStation 2 off eBay – inside the box was €65,400 (£44,000). He didn’t get the two games promised from the seller, although it’s unlikely that he’s too peeved about that. How do you fit that amount of money into a PS2 box is what we’d like to know though. 100 Euro notes, probably.

The money is now being looked after by the police as his parents were honest enough to hand it in. Bless them. If unclaimed the boy’s family could apply for it to be returned to them but… hang on… he didn’t get the two promised games? Negative feedback!
