Mystery at Nordstrom: $3000 Disappears from Customer’s Hands in Oak Brook


Share post:

OAK BROOK, Ill. – In a bizarre incident, someone supposedly dropped $3000 cash inside Nordstrom’s Men’s Department at Oak Brook Mall, but it seems to have vanished into thin air. 

This leads us to wonder: how much money is appropriate to carry on you, really?

Here’s the kicker: Illinois state law actually requires individuals to have at least one dollar on them at all times, or they could be charged with vagrancy. But come on, who carries around $3000 in cash anyway? It’s not only a bit absurd, but it also puts you at risk of loss or theft.

Experts recommend carrying a modest amount of cash for daily expenses, but any more than that is just asking for trouble. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation advises against carrying large amounts of cash and recommends keeping it in a secure location, such as a bank account or a personal safe.

The fact that this mysterious wad of cash has gone missing only reinforces the notion that carrying around large amounts of money is just not practical. Let’s take this as a lesson learned and leave the big bucks at home, folks.
