A man in Sydney, Australia reportedly received $15,000 ($15,652 U.S. Dollars) by selling his car. Rather than putting his money in the bank, he thought it to be a good idea to hide the cash in the oven since it is rarely ever used. Well, his wife felt like chicken nuggets that day. So when she went to preheat the oven, the cash went up in smoke. Having set the money aside for his mortgage, the unnamed man now says he has nothing left to his name.
But all hope is not lost. The Reserve Bank of Australia’s policy states, "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." Hopefully this guy can find a few matching remnants to help get some of his money back.
