or maybe they just wanna see how smart the average joe is, and how he would solve something like this.

Someone please post the exact method which was used to decode this message. I want to work out for myself exactly what it says.

Notice where the serial letter is blackened out on the upper left..then down in the bottom right..correct- AB32836881E something is up with that..he either did not want the bill traced..or was changing the upper left to either an I or 1. The guys whom can track this..Treasury Department..I think it would be important to find out where the bill came from.

The number 7 is my favorite number and has many meaning..Im going to check this out..there is also a symbol on the front of the bill..I will look around for that..

In my opinion..the homeless guy use to work for the Government..he is very important..and may have just went off the grid..that is just my opinion based on instinct..whatever this is..I think it will guide you to allot of money..if so..who ever finds it..you need to make sure that poor homeless guys has everything he wants and needs..

Here's some quick observations I made by looking at the note:



I doubt all of those markings mean something, but my guess is at least half of them mean something. And I have a strong suspicion we are missing something here... there's something else to be found, another message hidden here. I know it.

Please elaborate more clearly. Your post was a messy jumble of broken links and nonsensical sentences. I didn't see any proof of your claim in that post.

The number 7 is a spiritual number and indicates completion of initial work..I think this is the meaning on bill..but there are numerous other connections with the number 7. The number 7 also relates to Neptune, Saturn, The Chariot, Saturday, Violet

In the mind of a cryptographer the number 7 does not relate to spirituality or astrology; they would be the relations derived from the mind of a casual ATSer.

If you go back to the first page of this thread, and actually READ each post. You'll see the code was already solved on the first page....

The message is divided in 3 parts and each is written in 3 diferent languages spanish, english and russian.

Part of the message reads

¨SAVE OUR CITY SUPLY¨

the back of this image i.imgur.com... is definitely the english alphabet although out of order - i wrote down the letters missing and they correspond to those letters g n i t s e r a l p o d -

why is the letter "B" marked out on the front of the 50?

just playing around here -

hahahaha - i stopped at the end of the op to have a little fun - to see if i could figure something out - i didn't want to find out the answer until i finished but not my curiosity is driving me a little crazy - thanks for the direction - going back to first page

Don't cyphers have a code of sort? so if one letter represents something it usually does through the whole message? I don't see how anyone got that code and figured it out and would love to see how they did it.

No, in this case due to the type of cipher used.

Alright wise guy, so you can cite an exception. Now let your smart pants go find the statistics on homeless people, and you will find that despite that my post was not politically correct (which means JACK in trying to figure something out), I was very right to suspect that the homeless person had a mental illness or problems with drugs or alcohol, probably alcohol because it's cheaper.

You are the type of person who would be unable to profile people at an airport, because you are too afraid to hurt someone's feelings by following stereotypes. The Israelis have some of the safest airports because they say, To hell with political correctness, we know what the real data says.

I thought about putting a disclaimer in my post, figuring some "social guilt tripper" would try to slam me.

Get real. Plenty of average people are alcoholics and suffer mental illnesses, but the homeless especially. You might have gotten more stars for your post than I did, but the facts are on my side. You lose.

SOURCES:

Mental illness 3rd largest cause for homelessness:
www.nationalhomeless.org...

34% of homeless had chronic substance abuse issues:
homeless.samhsa.gov...


For singles, the three most commonly cited causes of homelessness are:
Substance abuse
Lack of affordable housing
Mental illness
www.pbs.org...





I think your point might have had more validity 10 years ago because there are very sane yet stressed out homeless people roaming the streets now.

South Florida, where I live, might be the capital for homeless and trust me, I've spoken to many. True, there are a bit more homeless who drink and drug but it appears that lead is being closed in on by the lower/middle-class homeless now.
There are a lot of men who have loss their jobs, wives, kids, houses, cars etc and are sleeping on the beach and in parks. This was NOT the case 10 years ago. And in fact, I bet their handwriting is great because they articulate very well.

So times are changing and your stats might be a little out-dated now.

About the OP, what does double encrypted mean? (or whatever that terminology is) Because I just gave the standard alphabet value to the letters on the back and it made no sense at all.
Please explain. Thanks

Yeah cheers for that I looked through that but what is the number code for that message, have you figured it out too? What type of cypher is it or is it a unknown one? I find it interesting and would like to see how it is solved as all of that wiki page isn't making sense in relation to this code

Just looked at the reddit thread and the OP added a new edit to it:

EDIT 3 After stumbling through the scores of PMs that I've gotten over the last few hours, one in particular stood out and made my mouth drop.
3rd Message down: i.imgur.com...

The message claims to be from the ragged man himself. I would be inclined to believe it was someone trolling me, but the section that has a red box around it is my name how it appears on my bag... Along with the message came another cipher, but after trying the method that SirSpam used, it doesn't seem to follow. The message makes reference to the use of a proxy and how he wants to remain low profile. Below is the plain text of the message:

2220944379I am Mr. Input. expand allcollapse all
[–] from 2220944379 (_) sent 4 hours ago AKC. You may not believe me, but I will remind you of your personalized backpack [personal information redacted] You have recruited the help of friends, the offer is now on the table for them too. I cannot have strangers inquire about me, rather we will use a proxy. Here is the next step: DWY JLRR QUBPKSJ IL NDLM OQD OUCEQMW KGXI CSH RFRM XL WEZUXKJ. YME QLPRBAZ OQD TPVJG HPM UK CQJS H.
