    A 16-year-old teenage boy from Norfolk, England got the surprise of his life when the Playstation 2 he ordered came with a little something extra - 65,400 euros! That's just about $90,000 USD at the current currency conversion rates....

    The real question is this...He knows the owner will he try to return it?

    Why didn't they just keep their mouths shut about the money?

    If they do get it back, which I think they won't, they'll end up havikg to pay taxes on it.

    Not to mention the thugs might come looking for it if indeed it is crime money.

    Hey idiot! Way to attract attention to yourself............

    No Kidding, the dumby should have hid the money, went and bought a safe and hid it under his bed.
    Then every once in awhile take some out and put it in the bank.

    you're asking a 16 year old to do something intelligent, with quite a large sum of money none-the-less. Good luck with that.....

    I wonder if the seller was MV7, Ookie or RMexico and the Euros were part of an offshore investment (hiding kennel money overseas) and got mixed up with the sale of his PS2 and Madden 04

    Simple they come from Norfolk, which isn't renowned as the home of intelligence - the average family car is a tractor - these are the common clay of the east coast , better known as morons
    ;D

    They're distantly related to those Packer fans in Wisconsin where sheep worrying is a way of life.. so I'm not surprised they did what they did ;D
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
