    After the gavel fell Friday at Sotheby's auction house in London, Banksy's Girl with Balloon was reduced to shreds -- another apparent act in the disruptive career of the anonymous British graffiti artist.
    The iconic image of a girl reaching out for a red, heart-shaped balloon, sold for $1.4 million and moments later, a shredder hidden inside the "artist's frame" started its work, according to a news release from Sotheby's and the art "self-destructed."

    I believe the funds are electronic and the seller doesn't have to be in the same country as the auction.
    I'm going with shreading before he was paid
