The millionaire retail magnate behind the Hidden Cash Twitter feed has stated he will be setting in motion his first treasure hunts in London this weekend. On Saturday, parcels containing £100 in cash will be concealed across the capital, reportedly commencing with a park in the nucleus of the capital.
They will be the first drops to take place outside the Americas since the Hidden Cash scheme took the United States by storm scarcely over three weeks ago. The anonymous social experiment for good sees hints to the locations of packets of cash posted on the Twitter profile@HiddenCash, which presently has more than 600,000 fans.
Its patron has presently been disclosed as 43 year old San Francisco property investor and house flipper Jason Buzi, who according to a NBC Los Angeles examination have a history of debatable real estate ventures.
Mr Buzi maintains that his incentive has at all times been solely to get people together enjoying the hunt, as well as encouraging the victors to pay it forward if they can. Talking to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Mr Buzi divulge that, in spite of the worldwide media coverage of the scheme has undergone, he and a sum of moneyed colleagues involved have only really given away between $10,000 and $15,000.
However, in that same interview Mr Buzi declared plans to roll out Hidden Cash globally. First to Mexico City and then London, Paris and Madrid. Yesterday the official profile of the scheme tweeted: “Yes, it’s true. We are crossing the pond and heading to EUROPE! First stop: Where else? London, England of course! This Saturday. ”
In addition, Mr Buzi told the Telegraph he had engaged a man who works near Birmingham to make the first 20 drops in and a yet to be determined large park in central London. Hints to their location will be put out on the main feed, in spite of a spin off. HiddenCashUK account appearing last month, there are absolutely no plans to set in motion a long-term British subsidiary.
Whilst London and the rest of Europe are being covered. Drops will as well continue to be made in US municipalities, including Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, New York and of course San Francisco. He wants to see how London go first and then he will determine if to extend it around the United Kingdom. Londoners are huge Twitter users so there will be quite a crowd. Our chaps appear to enjoy a treasure hunt so it could develop into a struggle for the money.
Mr Buzi was first verified as the mystery man of wealth behind Hidden Cash when he gave an unknown radio interview and Inside Edition, using forensic speech analysis, equaled it to a podcast about real estate that he recorded in 2010.
He has since repudiated claims that Hidden Cash is a PR connected to his off market property purchasing, and maintains he liked it better when he was unknown on account of, it was easier to make the drops himself. He has foresight for the scheme going far beyond its current scope, and stated his team will continue to organise the treasure hunts for at least a further six months.
He wants this to be a global movement. He is not a trillionaire, nevertheless, he has obtained a quantity of money in his life and wants to pay it forward, just as he wants all the victors to pay it forward too.
