When you buy a secondhand car, a lot of checks have to be made. You need to check to see if the engine is working or if the battery is in good shape. You need to check if the interiors are clean, how long the mileage is, etc.
Sometimes, the person selling the secondhand car even gives you a freebie to clinch the deal. It can in the form of a free air freshener or a windshield screen protector and other car accessories.
One guy scored a great deal out of a confiscated secondhand car he bought at a police auction. However, this guy only got his “freebie” a little while after buying the used car.
After a certain period of time using the secondhand car, the power windows broke. In order to save money, the guy figured he would go ahead and fix it by himself. He opened the door panel to try to check what was wrong with the window and found nothing.
So he went on and pried off the plastic that was protecting the inner parts of the door panel only to find a black bag lodged in between the door panel’s bars. The guy, curious as to what was inside the bag, opened it and found what appeared to be bricks covered in duct tape.
He peeled off the duct tape and found thick wads of cash, probably worth thousands of dollars. To his excitement, he posted this bizarre discovery online so he could share it with his friends, but found himself deleting the post soon afterwards, for fear that the previous owner might be able to track him down.
A lot of social media news sites got a hold of his story, so the man chose to keep his identity secret for reasons that his safety might be compromised. One thing’s for sure, he definitely saved A LOT of money fixing that broken car window by himself.
Let’s say you’re as lucky as this guy and you happen to find a lot of money inside a secondhand car. What would you do with the money? Share this story and comment your thoughts below!
