What's the most interesting / most expensive item you've found in a trash-out?

My friend works directly for the owner of Safeguard. They're given these huge, expensive foreclosures all the time. Last week they got a 2010 Mercedes. Before that they found a 2003 Camaro, numerous flat screen Tv's, guns, coin collections, etc. For the cars they had to go through a long process to get them but they ultimately got them free of charge!

What's the best item you've found?

A stretched out love swing and a collection of polaroids featuring REALLY large women.

Never laughed so hard in my life.

And one day they will go to jail or be suid for stuff like that. Safeguard is BY FAR the most unscrupulous company in the business. I just had a company TRY to give a SG work order last Friday on a property to "remove debris" (personals) Most unseasoned guys would figure SCORE!!! 1st thing i did is went to county records. Home was foreclosed on and sold at the courthouse steps 10/2011. 2 weeks later the sale was rescinded and it went back to PPO. Can't remove personals on a PPO. They said OK we'll re-assign it. GOOD! I don't want anything to do with that! I'll be the 1st one to tell the owner who took their chit too. After it goes to sale here and is posted for 10 days it's up for grabs. Best thing i got was a 97 Powerstroke F350. Haven't had a chance to work on it yet. Just using it for parts as it's really not worth the hassle of titling as it had a rough life......

I'd be too scared to take anything really. I've lost all my belongings more than once due to being evicted so I know what it feels like. The same friend has taken stuff from foreclosed homes and put them in storage at his cost until they got a hold of the family.

Tell me, does this sound right to any of you? Here we have people struggling, losing their home, jobs etc...and some FNG'S thinks its ok to do these things?? Come on man. You're taking what little some of these people have left! They could sell these items to help move or relocate. It's people like you and your friend who gives honest contractors a bad name. This is just awful. Only a hack idiot would think this is ok.
