WWYD if there was a suitcase with £1m in your garden

You are totally innocent - you have done nothing and in the morning you wake up and find a suitcase with £1m in the garden.


If you reported it to the police, do you get any of it?

Thats my suitcase you just found. If you return it safely I shall reward you with 10% no questions asked and no police involvement Grin

Secrecy · 16/02/2012 22:06

Dunno - but if I didn't report it, I'd be having nightmares about Shallow Grave for too long for it to be worth it [wuss emoticon]

I would bring it in the house. Put it on the dining room Table and stare at it
For hours like I was in a film.

This would involve pacing for dramatic effect.

I would report it eventually but I would enjoy pretending lol


Secrecy · 16/02/2012 22:06

ilove Grin don't forget I lent it to you..!

TheParan0idAndr0id · 16/02/2012 22:07

I would keep and hide it and I don't care how immoral or shady that makes me.

squeakytoy · 16/02/2012 22:08

I would have to have some of the dosh... in fact sod it... I would be off to the shop to get a note checked to make sure it was genuine and not fake, and I would be gone! Grin

EmmaCate · 16/02/2012 22:09

I would report it as it would be unlikely to be there for legal reasons. You keep the cash I think if it wasn't stolen or laundered or whatever, and no-one claims...

Secrecy :o

NoMoreMarbles · 16/02/2012 22:09

i would report it to the police...wait the allotted 60 days and then claim it all back from the police...Grin so when do i get my suitcase thenWink

GrahamTribe · 16/02/2012 22:10

I will answer you but first I need to know if you've found such a suitcase and if so what your address is. Grin

Wretched · 16/02/2012 22:10

I'd thank fuck I had a trampoline-friendly abode with which to accommodate said suitcase. Then I'd take the money and move house.

AKissIsNotAContract · 16/02/2012 22:10

I'd tell the police I'd found a suitcase with half a million quid in it.

McHappyPants2012 · 16/02/2012 22:10

i don't known.

if i spend it the mafia may gun me down, if i hand it in to the police the mafia may gun me down.

i will keep it not spend it and who ever comes to cliam it can cover my debts and alittle on top to do my house out and i would be happy

ShatnersBassoon · 16/02/2012 22:11

I'd shove it in an overgrown bit of the garden and hope nobody came looking for it. I would consider mine after a week 6 months.

Birdsgottafly · 16/02/2012 22:11

You wouldn't get any of it if you reported it, because it is probably the proceeds of crime.

Personally i would split the money and hide it, bury the suitcase and wait to see what happens.

ilovebabytv · 16/02/2012 22:11

secrecy you can have your suitcase back but the money is all mine i tell ya, all mine :)

IUseTooMuchKitchenRoll · 16/02/2012 22:12

I'd take some out then report it.

ICanTuckMyBoobsInMyPockets · 16/02/2012 22:12

I'd take it to the police and say "Look at this suitcase I found with £1000 in it" Grin

X-post with loads of other hilarious posters! Smile

aldiwhore · 16/02/2012 22:13

I'd dress like a ninja so can't be photo'd by the ganstars that obviously own it, I'd put the kids/DH in the car, I'd run into the garden, grab the cash, leave thesuitcase (first checking to make sure it was used notes) and then fuck off on a road trip finally settling elsewhere in the country in a few years time with a new identity and nice shoes.

JustHecate · 16/02/2012 22:13

I would assume that I was the victim of a new series of candid camera.

I would call the police. If something isn't claimed within however long, you get it back.

Million pounds in a suitcase is either drugs, kidnap ransom or tv show (and therefore fake cash, of course. Grin )

JustHecate · 16/02/2012 22:14

Birds - but what if they can't prove it's the proceeds of crime?

CowboysGal · 16/02/2012 22:15

I'd probably wake up!

SpringingAllTheWay · 16/02/2012 22:15

Call the police.... I'd be worried incase it was all part of a robbery/drug deal!

Wittsend13 · 16/02/2012 22:15

I would throw the money up in the air, in my bedroom and sleep with it.
