"Storage Wars" are group of people who bid for abandoned storage lockers. These lockers could contain anything that no one knows.

According to Dan on the video posted on twitter, an old lady approached him while attending the Cars, Stars, and Rock N' Roll charity event in Indio, California.

"My husband works with a guy who bought a unit from me for $500 and found a safe inside," the woman said.

"The first person that they called to open the safe couldn't, or didn't. They called a second person and when that person opened it up - inside the safe, normally they're empty, but this time it wasn't empty. It had $7.5 million cash inside," Dan said.
However, the couple couldn't imagine how someone could leave that huge amount in a storage and then leave it. And then they started to dig deeper to keep themselves safe but an attorney arrived in behalf of the owners. 

They were offered $600K in exchange for the locker's content. According to the Daily Mail, the buyer rejected the offer but later agreed after doubling the offer to $1.2 million.  

The video is making rounds online and many people are wondering why and making there thoughts about the huge money left on the abandoned locker. Some said that the money might came from wrong doings, from drugs or in illegal activities.
