Someone must be able to crack this code that’s got everyone stumped?


    It’s a mystery worthy of Sherlock, Nancy Drew and Hetty Wainthrope (much-underappreciated lady detective.)

    And it’s got the UK’s favourite parenting website, Mumsnet, up in arms. Oh and to make it even harder? It’s even got Reddit stumped.

    So what’s the deal with this mysterious note?

    A user posted last week, a simple enough question:

    ‘Yesterday came home to find a bit of folded-up paper wedged in a crack in the fence wall bit (pavement goes right past it). Opened it up to find 2x2p coins inside unrecognisable writing – see pic!
    What is this?’

    So. What is it?

    The replies poured in thick and fast.

    First of all, people were worried. ‘Do you have a dog? A lot of people who steal dogs leave signs/notes to eachother to alert which houses to target. This seems way more complex than the usual symbols but still.’ wrote one poster.

    ‘It looks like it’s been written right to left, as the words begin neatly on top of one another on the right hand side. I wonder if it’s cursive handwritten Hebrew?’ one person suggested.

    ‘If you turn the page by 90 degrees it looks like a very fluently written oriental language written top to bottom. The words are in the middle of the lines’ another ventured.
