By Bang

A woman wast left gob-smacked when found a $100 inside her rented DVD box.

Inside was $100 from a stranger called Marcos, who left a message explaining that he sends the generous gift to strangers each month and this lucky lady was his "first giveaway of 2017".

The note read: "Hello! My name is Marcos. Every month I take $100 that I'd normally spend on myself and give it away to a stranger.

"This month I decided to change it up and put it in a Redbox DVD. You are the first giveaway of 2017.

"I just ask that you put the money to good use; if you don't need it, give it away. If you do need it, keep it."

Sharing the news on Twitter, the woman with the Twitter handle, @lifeaslizz_, wrote alongside a picture of the message: "My mom was just hoping to relax & enjoy a movie, but instead God blessed you. @redbox (sic)"
