Man found £6MILLION inside £390 storage unit bought at auction… and there was an incredible twist

A MAN found £6 million hidden inside a storage unit he bought at an auction and there was an incredible twist.

The lucky treasure hunter found the jaw-dropping amount in a second-hand storage unit he bought at an auction for £390.



Auctioneer Dan Dotson, who is the host of the US TV show Storage Wars revealed that one of his buyers made the amazing finding after their bid at the auction.

In a clip shared on social media, he explained he was approached by a woman at a charity event in California who told him about the fortune.

Dan said: “An older Asian woman at the table next to me kept looking at me like she wanted to tell me something.

"Eventually she walked up and told me her husband works with a guy who bought a unit from me for $500 and found a safe inside.

"And the first person they called to open it I guess couldn't or didn't.

“They called a second person and when that person opened it up – inside the safe they're normally empty, but this time it wasn't empty.

“It had $7.5million (£5.8m) cash inside."

However, the lucky buyer wasn't able to keep the fortune as he eventually had to return the cash to its original owners.

Dan told The Blast at the time, that the treasure hunter was contacted by an attorney, claiming to represent the original owners of the unit.

The lawyer reportedly offered a £465,000 reward for the money but that offer was turned down.

However, the second offer of £930,000 was later accepted which meant that the anonymous lucky buyer had to return the rest of the cash.

Dan wondered how can anyone forget such a big amount of money hidden in a safe.

He added: "$7.5million inside of a unit, I don't think you'd forget it but maybe you were just in a position where somebody else was in charge of it, I don't know.
