Who in the dickens told this man that it was a good idea to hoard his life savings in an article of clothing?!?!?!
An elderly Illinois man who accidentally donated a suit stuffed with $13,000 in bills to Goodwill appealed for the money’s return so that he can care for his cancer-stricken wife, WQAD reported. The 80 year old, from Moline, decided to keep his life savings in his closet rather than in a bank because he thought the money would be safer there.
But his plan backfired when he absentmindedly donated the cash-stuffed suit — leaving him unable to pay medical bills for his wife, a Stage 4 cancer sufferer.
A Goodwill spokesperson said the agency searched its Moline store but could not find the money. It is believed the suit may have been sold already. The man’s daughter offered a $1,000 reward for the suit’s new owner to “do the right thing” and come forward.
Dayum, we really hope this guy gets his money back! He’s 80-years-old so he gets a pass for his absent-mindedness
