All of Bobby Fischer's personal belongings, including millions of dollars worth of chess memorabilia, were auctioned off by Bekins Storage when Bobby fell a month behind on his monthly bill. Bobby was out of the country and had his lawyer paying his bills, but one month, his lawyer forgot to pay the Bekins bill. Bekins sold the stuff off cheap to the highest bidder. Supposedly they only got a few thousand dollars for the loot, not realizing that this chess stuff belonged to an x-world champion of chess and could score big bucks on the open Ebay market.

Bobby was furious and verbally blasted Bekins for hours on a Philippine radio station.
