We've all been there: a week until payday, the rent is due, and you're rummaging in your parents' attic to find Dad's Mickey Mantle rookie card.
If you're in need of some quick cash, here are six stories of people who found a fortune when -- and where -- they least expected it.

I watched the Pollock piece when it originally aired. I felt rather bad for the lady because it was quite obvious that she has an original (albeit unknown) Jackson Pollock. The stuck up art "experts" just don't like being one-upped by a crass old truck driver and so she's stuck in art purgatory.
