Ten of millions in cash hidden between walls, netizens go bonkers

A video of millions in cash tucked away inside a wall and found again during decoration of an apartment has gone viral, with netizens working overtime on conspiracy theories.

A video of tens of millions in cash tucked away inside a wall and found again during decoration of an apartment has gone viral, leading netizens to work overtime on conspiracy theories.

As the video shows, stacks of 50 yuan (US$8) and 100 yuan notes were found stacked inside a wall.

Netizens are coming up with conspiracy theories about the cash, with one of the more popular being that the money was found after the apartment's new owners decided to do a spot of renovation.

But according to The Beijing News, the video was shot by police on January 10 while busting a fraud case in Songyuan city in north China’s Jilin Province, not in Harbin as some online posts implicated.

Local police have detained four people and seized more than 64 million yuan in cash. 

The case of the stashed millions is still under police investigation.
