"All interested buyers must register with the US Marshals Service (USMS) in order to be eligible for the auction. Aspiring participants must provide the following to the federal agency:"
"A $200,000 deposit sent by wire transfer from a bank located in the US"
"A copy of a government-issued photo ID"
"A manually signed PDF copy of the bidder registration form."
"The $200,000 deposits sent by the winning bidders will be retained by the USMS and used toward the final purchase price, though the individuals could lose their deposit under certain circumstances."
