Maria del Lujan Telpuk

Lorena Telpuk, formerly Maria del Lujan Telpuk, (sometimes Maria de Lujan Telpuk) or the Suitcase Girl (c. 1981) is a former airport police officer at Aeroparque Jorge Newbery in Buenos Aires, Argentina who noticed a suitcase with US$800,000 as it went through an X-ray machine in August 2007. In December 2007, the money became a very public part of an international election suitcase scandal, known as Maletinazo. When the suitcase scandal became public, she became an international celebrity and appeared on the cover of several magazines, including those of the February 2008 issue of the Argentine edition of Playboy magazine and the March 2008 issue of the Venezuelan edition of Playboy magazine.
