You may have heard about the mysterious millionaire who has been leaving cash hidden across Southern California.

The anonymous real estate investor has been using Twitter and the handle @hiddencash to give clues to locations of hidden cash.

Thousands of people have responded, showing up to search for the free cash, which is usually $20 bills.

Now someone in Chicago has brought the “game” to the Windy City.

The twitter handle @hiddencashchi popped up on Twitter last week.

The person already hid cash at a location on the northwest side a few days ago.

And they made another cash drop Monday morning.

Today’s clue said “drop tomorrow will def be in Humboldt Park. look for a spinner.”

WGN viewer, Tina Gaddy,  found $60 in an envelope and tweeted a picture of her find.

The note said to pay it forward and Tina is doing just that.  She said she’s going to the local coffee shop and buying coffee for everyone in line.
