SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – The mystery do-gooder who spent the weekend delighting Bay Area residents by hiding money around San Francisco and Oakland says he plans to begin dropping bills around San Jose Wednesday.

The scavenger hunt began Thursday night from Twitter account @Hiddencash. Dozens of tweets have been posted, containing clues to $100 bills stashed throughout both cities and the giveaway was still ongoing Tuesday:

On Friday only about a thousand people were signed up for the Twitter feed, but as of Tuesday morning more than 64,000 were awaiting news of the next drop.

Those who have already found money continue to post envy-inducing selfies:
