A California woman found over $36,000 cash stuffed inside a couch she got for free through Craigslist, according to reports. 

Vicky Umodu of Colton, California was searching for furniture for her new home when she came across an ad from a family who was giving away two sofas and a chair from the property of a relative who passed away, KABC-TV reported.

"So, I clicked on it, and the first thing I came up with was this family that wanted to give a sofa, and everything in their bedroom set … I said maybe it's a gimmick, so I called them,"  Umodu told the outlet. 

Umodu found out the ad was real and picked up her new furniture for her home, according to the report. When Umodu got back to her place, she examined the sofa and made a shocking discovery. 

Local news reported she found envelopes with cash inside and began "screaming." Per the outlets, she returned the money to the family who gave her the furniture.

"God has been kind to me and my children, they're all alive and well, I have three beautiful grandchildren, so what can I ever ask from God?" Umodu told KABC-TV.

The family ended up giving Umodu $2,200 and said they would pay for her new fridge, according to the reports. The family also said they found more cash hidden inside their deceased loved one's property.
