What a huge bummer this is!!

Woman finds 100 MILLION lire in her safe - only to be told it's worth NOTHING because Italy has had the euro for more than a decade

Claudia Moretti discovered the cash in a safe at her uncle’s home

She had inherited the house following her uncle's death

Her hopes of being rich were dashed when she went to the bank

She was told the deadline had passed to change the lire into euros

Lawyers challenged the decision but were unsuccessful

AAAAGGGHHH!!!

It must be worth some coin to collectors, even if it's a fraction of the original notes value?

Deadline grumble grumble.

Not really. She hasn't 'lost' anything. :)

And, she now has the chance to wallpaper her whole house with cash! (Her home could become a tourist attraction)

100 million Lira. I'm sure it's a single bill.

Yeah, I know. It was just a jab at the Italian inflation.They did have really high numbered bills, up to 500.000, if I recall right.

Edit: Actually, no. It would be £43148.05. The Daily Fail.

Well that's just not true. I remember going to Italy about 15 years ago. First and only time I was a millionaire :D

I dip the money in poison and fashion it into darts and shoot the judge.
