Hidden Cash arrives in Mexico

The Hidden Cash craze arrived in Mexico City yesterday. Several people found envelopes containing 500 pesos after the information was posted on the Hidden Cash Twitter account, @hiddencash.

Such has been the practice in the United States, where a California businessman, who claims to be one of the people behind it, says it’s a “fun way to give back to the community,” and encouraged people who find cash to “pay it forward.”

In California last week, envelopes containing $50 and $100 were planted in various locations. It spread to New York on Saturday.
