Best Buy Employees Find $10,000 Stashed Inside PC
We've heard of people putting money in their mattresses before, when they're afraid there is going to be a run on the banks, but stashing your life's savings in a computer is a new one to us.

Sometime in the last week, a publicly unidentified man dropped off his computer tower at a St. Louis-area Best Buy for repairs, but forgot to remove his savings from inside, according to Monday night, the employees opened up the PC to find almost $10,000 cash stashed inside. The staff was confused at first and reported the find to police, who ran a background check on the owner. The investigation turned up nothing suspicious, and police returned the owner's money.

Regardless of the happy ending, let this be a lesson. If you're going to hide your money in your PC, remember to take it out before taking your computer in for repairs. [From:]
