$43,000,000.00 in $100.00 bills is 430,000 bills. Bundled in packs of 100 bills, that's 4,300 packs.
That pile isn't anywhere near big enough.
@Filker, just because they found it doesn't mean they counted it nor do they know how to apparently
@Filker, Could be in Nigerian currency. No idea
@Filker, or maybe they didnt take a picture with the whole pile?
@Devil Ocean, just look at the photo. These bills have a great big picture of Ben Franklin on them.
@Filker, Like you could possibly know that, I bet you've never seen a pile of 4,300 stacks of bills in your life
@Filker, Maybe it's the Nigerian Ben Franklin, Bendobo Frandakilin
@Filker, I'm glad I wasn't the only one questioning the actual size of the pile.
@Filker, not to mention, why is it American money in Nigeria
@Filker, I bet you never seen 500 thousand dollars except in the movies. Leaves a lot to be desired
@Filker, I mean it is USD and the news station is Canadian so that seems like the right amount. Surprised it isn't a smaller pile.
@KermitSmash, I doubt you've ever seen a stack of 100 banded bills of any denomination.
@BexarMinimum, i've seen it in the movies quite often. It's usually in a single briefcase. That's ludicrous.
...and yes, I've seen it in real life. Usually in an armored car.
@Filker, Untrue, and irrelevant. You're changing the subject to distract from the fact that you made yourself look foolish by commenting ignorantly.
@Filker, I was quoting dodgeball should of put that refreence
@KermitSmash, ah, and now more ad hominem to distract from your failure.
@KermitSmash, while you've got a point, 4300 is a big number. The pic looks more like 100 to 200 stacks of 100 bills. I may be wrong and that could actually be said amount of cash in the picture, but I'll never know for sure because I'll never see that much money in front of me in my life.
@Filker, this is probably one box of many they found.
@Filker, I'm sorry, could you elaborate on my supposed failure? I only pointed out that you were speaking out of arrogance, which you implied to be true in your first response
@KermitSmash, I have seen 4300 straps of bills, but that's just because I work at a bank 🤑 Truth be told one million dollars worth of $100 bills is not very impressive and 4300 straps or 430 bundles could easily fit on 2 large pallets. I guess what I'm getting at is the amount may not be the 43 million, but it could be close.
@Mr whiskers III, I think it's possibly close too. 100's come bundled into 10,000 bands, grouped into fives. So 50,000 is about the size of a brick(that's what we called it) I mean, I'm just speculating but if you could imagine about 860ish bricks there, then maybe. I worked at a bank for a long time too 😊
And you're right, I always looked at the intake and was like...the movies are full of crap lol.
@Filker, one picture probably doesn't show it all.
Isn't 43m in Nigerian money like 500 dollars? Seriously
I'm from edmonton
A Canadian news channel reporting on a Nigerian story involving American money......
I once replied with all of George W Bush's details.
My grandpa did. Probably not the same guy though.
