Someone's Hiding $100 Bills Around Vancouver and Tweeting Clues To Find Them

Inspired by a wealthy Californian businessman who has been stashing cash in San Francisco and Los Angeles and tweeting out clues to their location, a similarly flush Vancouverite has been doing the same locally, and using the Twitter account @HiddenCashYVR to direct searchers to envelopes containing $100 bills.

The real-life finders keepers game kicked off on May 28, and so far about a half-dozen envelopes have been hidden. Finders are posting their tales of unexpected windfall to Instagram and Twitter.

The clues keep coming; it’s not clear for how long this anonymous benefactor will be playing “Hide and Tweet” with the bucks. The mysterious cash stasher told Global BC he is “copying” the generous person behind @HiddenCashSF and @HiddenCashLA, adding: “It is a nice way to give back. The city [has been] very good to me. What a great opportunity and way for me to be able to do it.”

Find that cash, Vancouver!
