Fund Directors Organize For '69 A8-Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 24, 1968 Lesson: Don't Put Money In Old Cans kite A 28-year-old local man was flim-flammed out of $104.37 Friday afternoon, according to his report to Patrolman R. A. Studstill. The story Frank Manuel Jr . ot 1354 8th St.. told Studstill: He was in the 500 block at Northvood Avenue when he was approached by a man whom he relerred to as Nassau. Nassau said he had just arrived in town and wanted to be shown around, and that he was willing to pay $10 lor the service Manuel agreed Before they started to see the sights, Nassau suggested that they not carry all their money with them, and that Manuel put all of his money in Nassau's handkerchief, and he would do the same. So Manuel did just that, and Nassau put a large roll of bills in also. They walked along the Florida East Coast Railway tracks. Stopping at 23rd Street Nassau hid the handkerchief in an old metal can, and they walked toward Spruce Avenue. At this point Nassau said he was going for cigarettes, and that he had changed his mind about seeing the sights. Then Nassau added. "You can have all the money .'' Nassau disappeared. So Manuel, left alone, walked toward the hiding place. He looked inside. There was no handkerchief, there was no money, there was no Nassau. End of story.
