If he took the pic with a mobile phone and sent it on to Fenn without trying to clean up the metadata. It very well could have the gps coordinate of where the photo was taken. So.......if he slipped up already. The info is already out there to be hacked. The safer more profitable move is …

Hopefully the guy is a smart as you and didn't send email from his mobile phone or home computer. I still think there is more protection, freedom and opportunity in a reveal. And more risk in trying to keep it hidden and cash in undetected. For example......The finder is not as unknown as…

why tell Fenn if privacy is important. then fenn tells the world. and now a great hacker may be able to check Fenn. So unless it was a printed hard copy that was dropped off or mailed to him. The messages have went through the internet. Not very bright if privacy was so important. .....th…

Gems and Jewels too ....And the buyer will just never talk either......and some of it will get much much more value as one piece at auction than melting it down and selling the gold. A buyer would want to buy the piece not the gold. They can get gold elsewhere......

the exact spot does not have to be revealed anytime soon or ever. but there is no harm is saying it was in southwest Montana. and leave it at that. Also...unless the finder just want to set it on a shelf to admire....hard to believe that is all they will do...I would expect a eventual rev…

It is impossible to cash in the treasure and also stay anonymous. So it is either put it on a shelf to collect dust or deal with some level of publicity. JARED...You cannot have your cake and eat it too. Forget Occam's razor. I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express once. So my take on things is…
