This. People report and get robbed by thief or government (same thing actually). On their place I'd rather exchanged it for cash and gave most of it for charity and to help my family. I never take free money. People lose their jobs, gets lazy and lose any kind of relation ships cause of it.

Saw this on the news yesterday, interesting and yet what luck for a family to find!

They could invest or start a business or whatever they want to enjoy their life.
