Who is this guy who says he has more than enough money so now he is paying it forward by hiding money all around San Francisco? This elusive millionaire is hiding envelopes stuffed with $100 bills and leaving the clues on his Twitter page for this modern day treasure hunt, according to “Fox and Friends” live on Tuesday May 27.

The Bay Area just got an added attraction, money hidden in the most inconspicuous of places just waiting for someone to come along and claim it for themselves. This anonymous man communicated with ABC News via email and gave them a bit of his back story.

The man hiding this money said he made a lot of money in real estate, more than he will ever need, so he is having fun posting these clues and sending folks out on a treasure hunt. Fox News said that San Francisco may be the city benefiting from these good will deeds today, but this man may be branching out to other cities, so keep an eye on his Twitter page.

The Huffington Post calls this man "an anonymous rich person" and he is planning to expand to New York and Los Angeles soon. The man posts his clues to where the money is hidden on his Twitter page, with the handle @HiddenCash. He started this on Thursday night and has already given away $4,000.

As far as any clues about who this man is, he is so adamant about staying behind the scenes that he would only pinpoint his age down to the nearest decade. He said that he is between 35 and 45 years old. That’s it, nothing else was offered up, so finding this man’s identity is not going to be an easy feat.

So far these cash-stuffed envelopes have been found taped to ATMs, parking meters, under benches and even on a bulldozer. The elusive money man said he is giving away about $1,000 a day. He would like to see this start some random acts of kindness throughout the city, like going through a toll booth and paying for the car behind you.

For this millionaire this is nothing more than spreading some cheer across the city. Even if the people who find the money don’t really need the money, they can still benefit. “You’ve lifted their spirits and you have brought a smile to their face,” said the man with all the money!
