Who is the prime suspect in arranging for this "loss"?

  3. The seller who shipped the gold

  4. The UPS driver

  5. All of the above

    No disrespect intended, there are several nice trailer parks where i live here in Las Vegas on the other hand there are allot more on the south side of the tracks as well
    But i think its more of the perceived stigma that goes with it, but i do have an Aunt
    That lives in Northern California that lives in one and she has over $500,000 in the
    Bank :)

    I have a similar story to mynamespat. The person I knew had lost his wife and he ended up living in his car outside of his house. The grass/trees/brush were so thick that you couldn't even see his house. He wouldn't speak to anyone, and he died alone. His house was filled with valuables too painful for him to enjoy or share without his wife.

    I was remodeling rooms at Caesar’s Palace back in the late 1980’s. One evening after work I go over to the crap tables to watch and learn. There’s this older man also watching that was hideously dirty, zipper down, private parts exposed, looked like he crawled out from under a bus bench. I thought well he’s not gonna be here very long, someone will escort him away. After all this is Ceasar’s.
    Ha!!! Next thing, a guy with a tray walks up to him and this dude signs for $20,000.00.
    Loses it all in a few rolls of the dice and wonders off. I can’t help myself so I follow him. He goes to a carousel of slots that take $500.00 tokens. Another guy shows up with a rack of 100 $500.00 tokens. Creepy dude signs the receipt and lost them all in about 15 minutes.

    Nothing yet, but I wouldn't expect something quite this soon . . . investigations generally do not move quite that fast. I'd expect an arrest no sooner than a couple of weeks down the road, best case.

    Yes, you're right. "Follow the money."

    "Squalor". "Squandering" would mean she did spend her money.

    (Sorry, couldn't leave it alone, it itched too much...)

    My bet is still on the UPS driver. My previous business involved time sensitive documents being expressed mailed. The pick-up and delivery drivers were VERY cautious. If I missed a time delivery or drop off period, then I was in trouble. I tried many, many times to chase down their trucks and mail or pick up packages and the drivers would inform me they weren't allowed to make such exchanges. IF the driver IS found to be responsible for this particular case of theft, then I think the chances are that this wouldn't have been his or her first chance of deception.

    When a package comes to the door with the postal service the options are be there to sign or go pick it up later. Even with knowing all the drivers out here, they will NOT hand it to me off the truck.

    Hey guys, I don't think anyone believed me when I said that I got different coins back from grading. Even if i did trust the postman, witch I shouldn't have, the world is getting pretty bad. Someone just broke into my building in MI and stold things and then my neighbor cut down the big walnut tree in front of the building. He told my daughter that he thought it was his and cut it up for firewood, but the guy that cuts wood for her said that he saw a logging truck taking the main log away. I think everyone is getting the money bug and religion or at least decency has gone to XXXX.

    It matters not whether the buyer, seller, deliveryman or alleged intercepter arranged for the loss of the coins in this case, it is clear that "common" and "decency" are no longer words well-paired.

    Just like everything else in life. Everywhere I turn, I see people selfishly doing something that benefits themselves at the expense of everyone else. I agree common decency, (along with ideas of belated gratification, hard work, community interest, etc), is disappearing alarmingly quickly. I wonder how much technology, and everyone with their heads buried in smart phones, ignoring everyone around them, is contributing to this. :(

    I think I can sum it up this way: unbridled self-absorption. I’ve seen it magnify itself most of my life, even when we put a dime in a pay phone to call someone.

    Funny thing. My mom lives in a trailer park. Today UPS delivered the gold coin Mother’s Day necklace I had made for her. Nervously, I did not insure it because I didn’t want to bring attention to the fact that the package had a value better than 2k. Today I looked at the package tracking and they left it on moms front porch!! And she was there to receive it. Thank goodness it was still on the porch when I called her........ And I am sorry but the UPS driver set this whole deal up.

    LSW - acronym fror licensed social worker. However in a hospital setting most social workers are LCSW: licensed clinical social worker. OTOH, LSW might be an acronym for a different profession.
