    Okay, I'm in a live 24 BlogTV for charity. There is a guy who will donate over $20,000 if we can solve this riddle.
    IF anyone can solve this charity would love you forever!
    Link to the show http://www.blogtv.com/people/laci

    Here is everything that was sent to this stranger. IT was too long for one post.

    Is it just me, or does the whole thing sound quite spammy and like a hoax to me? Okay, so you're blogging for a charity, good for you, but who is this person Laci, and why is someone offering to give you $20,000 for charity if you solve a riddle and in the same breath trying to solicit this Laci person to go on a date with him/her in Hong Kong and discussing the disposition of nude photographs? The whole business is very creepy. I'm not saying there isn't information encrypted or enriddled into the message...

    +1,000. This is weird appleguy123. I thought it was going to be just a riddle some dude wanted solved to donate money. Now he is trying to solicit a girl to come to Hong Kong to meet him, apparently she has already sent him nude pics (which she is thankful he will not distribute) and is now trying to figure out who he is. I don't know what kind of charity this is but it seems like a Criminal Minds episode to me.

    anyone have a list of A&F and american eagle models? Finding names in common from both lists might narrow down the list.

    Okay here's the story. I am not vlogging for charity. Laci is .
    I have been up for over 30 hours watching this mystery unfold.
    -This guy has been donating large amounts of money (Over 7k so far) and playing games.
    She didn't send him the nude pictures. He would pay her 30k if she did, but she didn't
    We have been getting various clues as to the answer, but they don't seem to lead anywhere.

    We've pretty much given up. He's giving the charity $1500 for the first 4 hours extra and $1000 for each additional hour. He's just a rich troll.

    Update: we didn't figure out the riddle, but he gave us 20k anyway. Awesome! We raised 39k after fees!

    The moneys have to clear before they are counted in the fund.

    "we"? That was you in the video?

    Anyways that was anti climactic. I'm hoping the money is fake. That would be the best troll ever.

    At $28,000 that would be the most overprice nude of all time.

    Needs a few more things:
    Sex
    A plot to kill someone
    Epic action scenes that don't involve sitting by a computer for 28 hours :)
    We need to find out his actually identity and the answer to the riddle.
    Then it will be great.

    Your friend Laci there can provide the sex, and this can go straight to pr0n. Profit.

    Or a bunch of idiots making the worst decisions possible with over dramatic scenes and nonstop discussing for the average Lifetime/WE movie:p.

    At least you got the donation.

    As it is the story line would be quite exceptional for porn. Do I hear awards? :)
