    The grandmother is an idiot. You don't put $1M in cash under your mattress - you put it in a bank FFS. What if there had been a fire? All that money would have gone up in smoke. Not to mention, money only looses value stuffed under a mattress: in a bank she could have been earning $30 000 per year in interest!

    There was a case a few months ago of someone finding thousands of dollars in cash. It was an old enough stash that, if it had been in a bank and collecting interest, it would have been worth tens of thousands. Instead, because it was kept in cash, there was only a few thousand dollars there.

    The question is can she even fall asleep on the new mattress? I don't think I'd be able too. How frustrating. :mad:

    Though you are quite correct. Hopefully the daughter and others have learned you have do not throw out someone else' property without consulting them, no matter the intentions.

    That's sad. But it might all be a rouse to get media attention. I hope so, because that is a big loss.

    Only the cops tend to look there, try keeping it under the sand in a stinky litter box ... that throws everyone.
