The $134 Billion dollar suitcase

This is an absolutely amazing story. Two Japanese men were found in Italy with a briefcase holding $134 Billion American dollars in bond certificates! That’s 134,000 Millions!
This is enough money to buy the entire GDP of New Zealand! Farmland in the US is around $5000 an acre. These men could have bought 27 million acres, a plot of land the size of Ohio!

I have not seen a follow-up story yet as to whether these are fake or real. If real, there is a lot of explaining to do!

UPDATE: It seems these are fakes... which makes sense considering the huge amount.
