Baselworld heist again!

Yet again, Baselworld has Been hit by scandal involving theft. This time 4 diamonds were taken from under the nose of an Israeli dealer in the hall.
Baselworld seems to be getting a bad reputation for the wrong reason now !

See here -

Re: Baselworld heist again!

Didn't I see a thread the other day where a member was thinking of going into diamond dealing?

Re: Baselworld heist again!

There is an article on www.24heures.ch about it.

When I was there last week someone was telling me that morning a guy ran round one of the halls being chased by several people and it was so chaotic, he didn't know who was who. It appears that in one of the cafes the guy had stolen a wallet containing a large amount of cash.

I guess when you have so many people it is an opportunity for thieves. Don't know how they got out as you have to scan your ticket to leave.
