Ever Wonder What $20 Million Stuffed in a Mattress Looks Like?

And you thought you came out ahead that time you found a quarter between the couch cushions.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office shared a photo Monday showing roughly $20 million in cash wedged under a mattress in Westborough, Mass.

The loot — that’s the term you’re allowed to use when the money in question comes from illegal means — is connected to a pyramid scheme involving internet phone provider TelexFree, which is based in Massachusetts (although probably not for much longer after this mess).

The company allegedly ran its scam from January 2012-March 2014.

Now, we don’t know if that’s a twin bed, a double, a queen or what, but we do know that’s a whole heckuva lotta money right there. And it looks like there’s some room for another quarter of a million or so, right? Obviously, the lesson here is pretty clear: when you’re trying to swindle people make sure to siphon the cash to some hard-to-trace off-shore account. That’s just money laundering 101.
