I love that this dude says "What you see is what you get, no returns, and no money back," and then wants a cut of the cash. F you, buddy :)
 
2012-02-15 09:12:15 PM
In a contentious e-mail chain Labrecque provided to Action News 5, he asked for a cut of the cash. The buyer declined, citing Labrecque's seller policy that states, "What you see is what you get, no returns, and no money back."

Labrecque said this is different.

"That's a chunk of change, you know. That's life-altering money," he said. "I mean, if I was in that situation and I found that kind of money and I bought it from someone, I'd say, 'Here man, I found this money. I'll give you half of it.'"


Well of COURSE he'd be willing to accept money. Severely doubting the likelihood of him giving it up, though.
 
2012-02-15 09:30:04 PM
are we talking about the idiot that sold the safe full of money or the idiot that found the money and told the seller about it?
 
2012-02-15 09:46:19 PM
Safe to say he's right.

HEY! That's my safe! I accidentally gave it to Goodwill!

Also, if I made side-income off re-selling things off e-bay, and I came across a big-assed locked safe in some yard sale or estate sale or or Goodwill or however this guy came across it, there is no way my curiosity would let me sell it for $122 rather than bust that farker open.

If there's one thing I've learned from Storage Wars, is that you have to open that damn safe.

/of course it doesn't always have anything in it.
 
2012-02-15 09:53:43 PM
Guy gets what he deserves, it was a mistake to sell it but he did.
 
2012-02-15 09:56:26 PM
If he did get any money from the guy who bought it, do you think he would give half to whoever he got it from? Obviously, he didn't put the money in it, so it had to come from somewhere.
 
2012-02-15 09:56:35 PM
I'd have considered giving 10% of the money to the seller.

But, sorry, not half. This ain't no Chinese menu, this is pricks fix.

Preach. If 1 of 20 has something in it, it's probably worth it.

Well THAT's actually an interesting point that I hadn't considered.

He didn't say that HE put the money in the safe at all.

We once got a safe from a renter who skipped out; called a locksmith to open it. He offered to waive the fee in exchange for whatever was inside (so apparently this happens a fair bit). Turns out nothing was inside.
 
2012-02-15 11:10:19 PM
Safes are not really that hard to open. I know from experience and time spent ...
 
2012-02-15 11:10:38 PM

thomps: are we talking about the idiot that sold the safe full of money or the idiot that found the money and told the seller about it?


Not only that, now the buyer has made a huge amount of noise about that money. That is the sort of thing that if you were to come across it, you just quietly and calmly keep it to yourself. Taxes, relatives, friends, whatever, you're better off just quietly using that money for emergencies, or groceries, etc. and at the same time sit on the money you had in checking and get it invested over time. But no, this way is much better. Rub the seller's face in it, make sure everyone knows how awesome you are. I have no doubt the guy in Bartlett will spend it as stupidly as possible.

If 26k is life altering money, then you are very poor, Kenny.

Something can be life altering without being profound. For instance that's more than enough to pay off my car loan. That alters life (a couple extra hundred bucks a month can be used in many ways)

I have a safe that's locked and I don't have the combination.

I'm certain it's empty but after reading the story, I'm doubting myself.

The safe company wants $1,200 to drill it open but they would come and take it away for free.

It's been sitting in my tenant's office for years being used as a table.
 
2012-02-15 11:13:25 PM
A+++
Will buy from again!

Now when the IRS comes knocking, along with the ATF, and confiscate the $18k, trying to ensure that the money isn't drug money, and then put the $10k in another safe for the required amount of time for the real owner to claim the $7k...

Get a grinder. It will take some time, but you'll get it open.

Is the stupidest idiot the guy who cut open the safe with a torch? Because I'm astounded that they didn't incinerate the money in the process...
 
2012-02-15 11:18:44 PM
This is a case of KEEP YOUR FARKING MOUTH SHUT. IDIOT!
 
2012-02-15 11:20:05 PM
Even though the seller is being kind of a dick about the money (half? Are you nuts?), I would have thrown the guy either 500 or 1k.

Tell him to have a fun night with friends and use it to cover the tab, or to put it toward a new cell phone model or something. 25k is still an awesome little chunk of money to play with or invest.

Leaving a review rubbing it in his face was awesome, though :)

Really, it looks daunting. It's about 2 and a half to 3 feet on each side.
Where would I start grinding? Through the lock, next to the lock? I guess I should google "safe cracking"

Ha, my thoughts exactly. I'm not rich by any means, but I don't consider the retail price of a new Toyota Camry to be "life altering money." No wonder the moran is.grovelling for a cut.
 
2012-02-15 11:21:12 PM
I bet the smaller safe inside was the hard one to crack though.

"just another item to turn around."

Definitely looks like he bought it from someone else and flipped it.

How did the seller know there was $26k in the safe? If you find $26k in a safe you bought on ebay and the seller doesn't immediately contact you to alert you of "a mistake," shut your damned mouth and enjoy your new safe.

A 10% cut to the seller would not be painful, nor would it tempt karma. Give the bastard 10% and if he isn't happy with that, than fark him....

I'll bust that sucker for 1/4 of it's contents if you're close enough. And safe cracking is best done in front of an air conditioner at 4am.

What does happen in this case? It's wasn't really "found" money, it was undervalued and purchased. But since it's money, is it then considered income?

Some guys broke into a house and used the computer to look up instructions to break into the safe in the house. Try searching the model number and such.

Do the seller have real proof that the buyer really did find $26K
 
2012-02-15 11:24:06 PM
The seller's terms were "What you see is what you get, no returns, and no money back." Why is he complaining? That's exactly what he's getting - "no money back".
 
2012-02-15 11:24:49 PM

Seriously, I could forego $120 on the off chance the safe could have something good, knowing full well it may just be full of some guys old school porn and a will or such. Hell, the guy resells shiat he didn't think there could be some stuff in there to resell?
 
2012-02-15 11:25:09 PM
Would finders keepers, losers weepers hold up in court?
Pal, you were a dick about your terms of what you see is what you get, pound sand.
If I bought the safe, never would have said a word about it.
Both are morons.

Ya no shiat. $25k is "Well I guess I could remodel my kitchen now," money. Don't get me wrong, I'd take that kind of money in a second, hell I'd take $100, but it wouldn't change my life or anything.
 
2012-02-15 11:27:07 PM
Somebody need to find the ebay user that sold the safe and the "I found 26,000$$ in the safe!!!! A++++++" feedback.

fark that. You already gave the seller the highest bid.

The seller wasn't willing to give you a 10% discount on the price, was he?
