A homeless woman who found £25,000 while rummaging through bins may lose the lot after she took it to a bank to check if it was real.
Fadila Cirhanovic, 52, from Zenica, Bosnia-Herzegovina, said she couldn’t believe her luck when she found the cash.
But she feared it could be counterfeit and so took it to a bank to have the notes verified, reported daily Bljesak. Managers at the branch confirmed the money was real, but confiscated it and passed it on to police after Cirhanovic admitted to finding it.
She said: “I’m hoping that my honesty will be rewarded in the end and I will get my fortune and be able to change my life.”
Chef serves private parts
A Tokyo man cooked and served his own privates to five diners at a bizarre banquet in Japan.
Mao Sugiyama, 22, who recently underwent elective genital removal surgery, advertised the meal on Twitter.
He originally tweeted: “Please RT. I am offering my male genitals as a meal for 100,000 yen. Will prepare and cook as the buyer requests, at his chosen location.”
Sugiyama, who describes himself as ‘asexual’, prepared the meal with button mushrooms and parsley and served it to five people.
Six people had signed up for the feast but only five of them turned up to eat, although dozens more turned up on the night. The extra diners were offered crocodile based dishes while Sugiyama cooked up the exclusive meal, reports Calorie Lab.
Good Samaritan charged for littering
A US man has been charged with littering – after he tossed a couple of dollar bills to a beggar from his car.
John Davis was leaving a motorway in Cleveland, Ohio, when he saw the beggar in a wheelchair, reports Fox News.
He decided to try to help someone less fortunate than himself and grabbed a few dollars from his wallet.
“I have a brother that’s paralysed,” he said. “My brother’s in that same situation and struggles.”
As Davis approached the man, he rolled up the money and stretched his arm out of his car window.
He says the man took the cash but one of the dollars fell to the ground. The man bent over and picked it up.
Moments later, Davis was pulled over by a police officer who wrote him a ticket for littering.
He faces having to pay out up to $500 including costs and plans to challenge the ticket in court.
Cleveland police declined to comment but Davis says it will make him think twice about helping those less fortunate in future.
“I’d like to do it again but I’m petrified I’m going to get a ticket,” he said.Post published in: World News
