Did you know that There’s a $200,000,000 treasure that remains hidden up to…

Once upon a time there was a vile and much-feared pirate named Oliver Levasseur, or “the Buzzard”. On the day he was marched to the gallows, he tore a piece of his shirt and wrote a clue to where he had hidden the treasure he had accumulated over his lifetime treasure – estimated to be worth $200,000,000. He shouted an arrogant invitation to the gathered crowd to try to find his haul, and died without telling anyone the exact location of the treasure.

This happened on the 17th of July 1730. The closest anyone came to finding the treasure was a man named “Cruise” Wilkins, who had once served as a Grenadier Guardsman. He acquired some papers from a woman named Berthe Morele. The papers were allegedly copies from the original “map” Oliver had thrown to the public. Wilkins plunged himself into a long, frustrating and exhausting search for the treasure on the Seychelles Islands. His search unturned objects such as a broken wine glass and an old pistol, and he also found a hidden tunnel under a rock near the shore. Unfortunately, before he could find the treasure, the tide flooded the tunnel and the work-in-progress was forever lost.
