The buyer of a storage unit inadvertently landed the deal of a lifetime.

A man bought a storage unit from “Storage Wars” reality TV star Dan Dotson at an auction for $500 and later discovered it contained an unopened safe holding $7.5 million, according to the New York Post.

The news came out after the man’s wife approached Dotson at another auction and explained what they found.

The former owner of the unit later contacted the couple through an attorney offering them $600,000 in exchange for returning the money. The new owners declined at first and eventually settled on giving back $6.3 million and keeping $1.2 million. [NYP] — Erin Hudson
