(Newser) – We bet you've seen some bizarre stuff on Craigslist. But you've probably never found this. A couple found $98,000 in cold hard cash stuffed inside a plastic bag in a desk they bought for under $200. So what did they do with the money? The rabbi and his wife immediately called the seller, who had apparently left her inheritance inside the desk. She said she didn't remember where she had put it.
