Instead of putting his money in the bank, a mans 15000 dollars gets baked in his oven after his wife used it, not knowing the cash was inside.
According to Yahoo News, a father from Sydney, Australia who remains nameless sold his car last weekend. The man had $15,652 in U.S. dollars that he received from the sale of his car were it was meant to go toward his mortgage payment and other bills, according to Australian media. Instead of using the traditional method of keeping your money safe by using a bank or even hiding it under the bed, the man decided to use his oven as a hiding spot as it rarely gets used.
Unfortunately for the man, his wife decided to use the oven then next day to heat up chicken nuggets for herself and their two children, unknowingly burning 15000 dollars. His wife was beyond distraught when she found out and reprotedly could not stop crying while explaining the incident to her husband. He told a local news station, “It was everything I had. I’ve got nothing to my name. That money was supposed to go towards my mortgage.”
The man has reached out to his lender and the Reserve Bank of Australia for help. The Reserve Bank always advises people to take any damaged currency to the bank, as their bank policy reads, “if several pieces of the same banknote are presented, the Reserve Bank’s policy is for each piece to be worth a share of the value in proportion to its size… The combined value paid should be the face value of the original banknote.”
No word yet if the lender or the Reserve Bank will help the man with his baked money.
