Something is fishy with this story...a whole lot is fishy with this story actually.

First of all, no mobster is going to let you have \$1.2m of their money! That ain't gonna' happen, period. It doesn't matter what some court rules, they'll get their money, and they'll get every CENT...and then some!

Second, any party with a legitimate claim to \$7.5m dollars isn't going to hire some lawyer out of the phone book to try an open and shut case. They're going to hire a whole team of lawyers and actors to set these people up 17 ways from Sunday first...THEN they'd file their case. They'd hire PI's to follow these people for months, taking pictures and recording actions, etc. to make their case stronger.

Third, nobody has \$7.5m dollars in cash laying around and forgets where it is, not even George Soros. Think about it, the court process leading up to the sale of locker contents based on failure to pay the rent takes months and months.

Forth, the largest denomination bill in the US, the \$100 bill, is .0043 inches thick at the time of printing. \$7.5m dollars = a stack of \$100 bills 322 in. tall, or almost 27 FEET. If you broke that stack into (6) stacks, each stack would be still be over 4 feet tall. Break it into (12) stacks and each stack would be over 2 feet tall. So, basically we're talking about an entire moving box full of cash here. Each one of those \$100 bills weighs 1 gram each. So that box, with (75,000) \$100 bills in it would weigh a whopping 167.4 lbs. Okay, that's too big for the average person to lift, so let's put it in (2) moving boxes, each with (37,500) \$100 bills in it, for two boxes each weighing almost 84 lbs. each. We're not talking about something very easy to overlook here!!

Yeah I'm thinking the same thing. Its amazing they allowed them a cut to keep; probably hoping the story would die down and not attract too much attention to the previous owners. Hahaha

The CF dont deal with petty cash - they deal with Politicians who donate our taxes in the !00's of millions to the CF.

\$7 million is probably 1 months life support medical treatment for Hillary. Chicken feed.

Good point. What if as some have said its mob money - unless its clean why would they draw attention to themselves?

What if this is all a hoax - ie its clean money and that the story is contrived to male a "best seller" for Hollywood. Not a bad investment. Borrow 7 mill. pay tens of thousand in interest for a few days - but you reap a multi million movie deal?

Who would think someone would store \$7.5 million in a storage locker? Perhaps it was a way of exchanging narcotics for cash. Somewhere out there, there is a storage locker loaded with \$7.5 million in coc aine.

There was one guy who bought about \$120,000 of Gold bullion coins back in the 1960's and stored them in his basement. When he died, those coins were worth over \$7,000,000. So that was a wonderful inheritance for his cousin.

If they didn't contact the previous owners then word on the grapevine would eventually get round that there used to be a safe with \$7.5 million in that storage locker. Then rather determined people would start getting curious about what happened to it.

Instead of reading links, I dove right in and took it at face value. What I didn't realise was it's a hearsay account from a guy off fake reality TV show Storage Wars. It's really no more than a friend of a friend heard this story...

It could be a lead in to something else like a forthcoming Storage Wars special episode.

I am no gambler but a casino can be your friend......

thats how i would do it

read the book Prince of Thieves(the movie The Town is based on it) and thats how they washed their money. always thought that seemed like a good enough idea on how to do it if you ever came across a big stack.

go to the casino with 10 grand a couple times a month. cash it in for chips. gamble with 2k in chips. win or lose of that 2k cash those back in with the 8k you didnt touch and walk out with clean bills.

something like that

washing 20k a month and losing 4.

numbers i can live with

I wondered also about a free publicity type stunt. I wonder if their ratings have been dropping. I liked the first season or two and then they all, IMO, got a little too big for their britches and started acting like babies. That one Jarrod guy (I think that's the name) and his wife annoy the crap out of me.

Good idea! It's hard to imagine how someone can lose sight of their \$7.5 mil. Johnny Depp maybe...

Publicity stunt makes sense.
