A letter arrives in the mail.
In it you are informed that a secret Swiss bank account has been set up in your name and in it someone has placed $10,000,000 (and they are paying the fees to keep it there). According to the letter you are free to spend the money however you choose, but there’s a catch: One year after you spend so much as a penny, you will be found and killed.
You resolve not to touch the money, which isn’t that hard because it’s just like living your normal life. But then a close family member is diagnosed with cancer. The doctors say that with a new treatment they have a 75% chance of surviving. It costs $789,000 and without it they are almost definitely going to die. They have health insurance, but the company refuses to cover anything it deems “experimental”.
What do you do?
