A sudden rain of money on a landfill in Argentina
Usually there is only rubbish in a landfill in Argentina. But suddenly a lot of money was found. The bills were hidden in a locker.
They are looking for money in a garbage dump. Strange scenes are currently taking place in Las Barigas, Argentina. There, the flight of the $100 bill triggered a small gold rush.
“A friend got off his truck and saw a perfectly clean $100 bill on the floor,” Federico Paez, who was one of the first to collect bills from the landfill, told AFP. Collect with five of his friends as many bills as possible.
“It was like a find-the-most game,” Bayes said. Six of us raised ten thousand dollars.” The young man even found $25,000 in a landfill the next day.
It is better to keep the money at home
According to Internet networks, the estate of a lady kept the money at the bottom of the fake cupboard. Authorities have since blocked access to the landfill.
Argentina suffers from chronic hypertrophy. Many Argentines do not take their savings to the bank, but keep them at home in dollars.
After the incident became known, many memes – including those of President Alberto Fernandez and Vice President Cristina Kirchner in search of green bills in the garbage – were published to boost the country’s economy. (AFP/JMH)
