Depending on font, it is easy to mistake £ (pounds) for € (euros). Google says UK£ 313 091.17 = 621 861.682 U.S. dollars.Originally Posted by Dancing Milkman Thingy

btw, Madeline Abduction is an awesome band name.
And not too sound heartless, but, shouldn't one spend their money for a better cause? I mean, no one (but the abductor) even knows if she's alive. So why waste you'r money on this, when you could donate to help people that you at least know are alive and where you'r money is defenitly going to help, such as the Stop-Starvation-In-Asia thingies.

Staying away from General.
Not even close. Currently 1.00 EUR = ~1.345 USD. So the number you're looking for is more like $421,107.62.$626,200.00 - $621,861.68 = $4,338.32 so i missed it by $4,338.32 it is still a lot of money.Depending on font, it is easy to mistake £ (pounds) for € (euros). ***** says UK£ 313 091.17 = 621 861.682 U.S. dollars.
I do not care how much money .... the question is what happens to the money? Of course i want to see the child returned alive. Just curious about the money. That is all. Meow.
If what I read regarding the circumstances surrounding the little girl's disappearance (Children were left alone in a hotel room whilst parents enjoyed dinner at a nearby restaurant)is true, the parents would be facing charges in the states.
You don't leave small children alone (or in the care of a pre-teen sibling), period. Not for one hour, not for ten minutes, not for five.
A vacation to Portugal with little kids? Jeez... take them to Disney World or something.
