been thinking about this I'm sorry, but something about this
doesn't pass the smell test. I'm sensing a scam of one kind or
another, probably aimed at an insurance company, or possibly even
the artists that created the knives. Either that, or the person
that allowed this to happen is somebody that shouldn't be trusted
with any kind of valuable property, let alone anything sharp.
the person who sent this amount of value in such an insecure way is
the prime suspect or a total moron.
Would any jeweller send this dollar value in an unsecured way?
Hard to sell, you must be kidding! There are collectors of
everything, who want to keep stolen goods to themselves. The items
would never appear in public.
If this is a professional job, then the person who picked up the
case will be far far away and the knives will be have already been
sold to already known buyers. Who will keep them out of sight.
If it was an opportunist then eventually they will come undone.
Only time will tell, which case is the real one.
Let's hope it was an crime of opportunity and will work out in the
end. But what ever the lesson has been learnt by all of us RE
liability is with the person in charge of the goods. "Yes I left
thousands of dollars worth of goods un-attended where anyone could
steal them." LOL The insurance company will pay out on this, NEVER.
feeling very sorry for the makers who have lost out.
