#3 - Crypt next to Marilyn Monroe
In 2009, a woman put her husband's crypt up for auction on eBay. This prime real estate was highly coveted because it was the crypt directly above Marilyn Monroe's, and was allegedly purchased from Monroe's former husband Joe DiMaggio. The starting bid of $500,000 was blown out of the water and sold at a whopping $4.6 million. Unfortunately for the seller, the anonymous winning bidder, was a phony and backed out of the sale.
