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.
