So I have this riddle which contains a .docx file I opened and extracted the file and got the following contents:

enter image description here

In the file it was written "There is nothing here. But there is something inside"

I also have another hint "The doc is a lie. Needle in a haystack." Please help me solve this puzzle.

    $\begingroup$ Could you please post a plaintext listing of those file names? There's a high risk of transcription error if we try to recreate it ourselves. $\endgroup$ – Engineer Toast Dec 23 '15 at 9:19

    $\begingroup$ Since there's often some tricky aspects seemingly unrelated, could you please upload the original files to a file sharing website? $\endgroup$ – ʇolɐǝz ǝɥʇ qoq Jan 2 '16 at 22:08

    $\begingroup$ Are the files empty? $\endgroup$ – dmg Jan 5 '16 at 15:59
  • $\begingroup$ If it's a needle in a haystack, then uncompress everything and simply do a recursive search for plaintext in any of them. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Feb 17 '16 at 0:00
