Mystery Man Gives Couple Blank Cheque

An Iowa couple is £50,000 better off after a complete stranger gave them a blank cheque in a cafe. He told them: "Write any amount you like - I'm good for it."

The couple met their elderly benefactor in Dr Salami's Cafe in Pella, Iowa. He first asked if they had any kids. They told him they had a two-year-old.

Then he gave his conditions: They were to use the cash to buy a house, never reveal his identity - nor their own full names. And they have to name their next child after him.

The couple took him at his word to the tune of $100,000, about £50,600. But they could not believe their luck when the cheque cleared.
