1. Just another way for banks to steal from you.

It's all one big scam to redistribute the results of your hard work over to some filthy rich theif.

Don't ever trust banks. Always check up on them

2. I wonder how many other customers had their safety deposit boxes pilfered

for the unclaimed property auctions? I doubt that this is an isolated occurrence.

I wonder if new charges can be filed against the bank for theft?

On a side note, customers would be better off getting a fireproof safe and paying an insurance company to appraise and insure the jewelry instead of paying a bank for a safe deposit box.

3. The real takeaway is not to go four years or more without

visiting your safe deposit box.

Either that or keep your stuff at home.

4. Incredibly cheap

I have a biometric safe keyed to my fingerprint that cost less than $200 dollars. If you managed to steal it you could certainly force it open but your net gain would be only 2-3K in cash and other goodies. Here's the thing-it came with a steel cable to tie it down to some unnamed hard point...give me a break-if intrusion and finding my safe and stealing it as a unit was your deal would an eighth inch steel cable deter you? My wealth (ha ha) will never be left to others...
