This is how opportunity knocks at your door or your lady luck smiles at you. So the story goes this way that a bargainer bought a storage unit for a sum of $500 and when he bought it home and opened it he was surprised at his destiny as the storage unit contained 47.5 million insides.
This story was revealed by Storage Wars TV show star Dan Dotson and his wife Laura.
This story was unveiled to him by a lady who visited him at an auction event in Indio in California and said to him that she has a story for him.In a video from the twitter the lady explained that her husband works for a guy and that he had brought a unit from him for $500 which had a safe also in it.
The very first person that they called to open the safe had initially failed and he couldn’t or didn’t open the safe.
Then they called another person and the person was able to open the safe. These types of safes are empty usually but ‘presto’ this one was not at all empty.
It contained thick wads of currency notes and when counted they amounted to a whopping $7,5 million in cash inside the scraped storage. Actually after this discovery was made then the new owners of the safe were contacted by an attorney who was representing the old owners of the safe.
He said that the new owner of the safe was offered a reward of $600000 for the return of the cash. Reportedly the new owners declined but accepted a new offer to keep $1.2 million and give the remaining back to the old owners of the cash that was involved. The storage sellers did not disclose the identity of the buyers of the safe and neither did they disclose the identity of the seller of the safe to anyone.
