After hearing that it's possible to score great deals on confiscated vehicles, a man purchased a used car at a police auction.

When the power window broke on his car, he chalked it up to typical used-car woes. Rather than take it to a mechanic, he decided to try and fix it himself.

As soon as he removed the plastic panel he noticed something odd behind it. He peeled it back, and was surprised to discover a black bag shoved into the frame.

He brought the bag into his home for closer inspection. Inside the bag were seven bundles meticulously wrapped in duct tape. Could these be bundles of illegal drugs?

He carefully peeled back a corner of the duct tape, and was shocked to discover stacks of 10 dollar bills.

He continued to open the packs to discover more bundles of money, this time in 20's.

He never revealed the total sum he found or what he did with the money, but it is easily in the thousands of dollars.

This story first emerged in 2013 when the man anonymously posted his find online. It's such an incredible find, he was compelled to share it. Not surprisingly, the story went viral. Perhaps to protect himself from unwanted attention, he has since deleted all of his own postings, and anything that could connect him to the find. Of course, as we all know by now, the internet never forgets. While he has successfully disassociated himself from the story, the images still remain and some websites have creatively repurposed them to tell fictional stories. Although the story is a few years old, we at SFG found the truth behind it so compelling, we had to share it.

What do you think of this find? The money was almost certainly acquired illegally by the original car owner, but would you return it to the police? Use it for charity? Or perhaps, if you are purchasing used cars at auctions and fixing broken windows on your own, you might need the money yourself. What would you do if you found this money?
