A Sydney, Australia man recently sold his car for $15,000 (approximately $15,652 in U.S. dollars). For whatever reason, he stashed the cash in his oven which rarely gets used. Unfortunately, his wife decided to use the oven that day to cook chicken nuggets for his two children. The cash was cooked into a burnt mess.
The man had intended to use the cash to pay the mortgage and other bills, but that’s currently delayed. The man is working with his lender and the Reserve Bank for help replacing the destroyed money.
