The two boxes, however, contained only $500 each in $1 bills, he said.

With the easy this guy seemed to pull off this scam he could of just used Monopoly money as collateral and saved his $1000.

I was thinking the same thing, or at least use what police call a "dummy roll" (a $100 wrapped around 99 singles).

This story is so unbelievably asinine.

And before you call the FBI you would need some proof that the cards left the state of NJ. Nothing in the story says the cards left. Only that guy who allegedly was given permission to take the cards has left the state. And he was not the last person seen take possession of the cards. This is only episode one of a long soap opéra. Lol I am on my way to store to get more popcorn.

Once he let the guy walk away with the cards it was a done deal. No one can prove how much cash was in the bag. Exchange bag of cash for cards...guy walks away with cards...Guy hangs around for an hour chatting...He's going to say they had a deal and he paid for the cards.

Right. Furthermore, nobody can say what the cards were worth.

I thought the alleged thief texted Giddings he would see him in the morning in response to Giddings' text to the effect of WTF is going on. That doesn't sound like someone claiming the deal was done.

[QUOTE=NYYFan63;2249391]So it’s not his job to count the money? Strange…

This is hilarious - so find the guy whose job it is to count the money and fire or sue him!

Be interesting if Dick Giddings was arrested for filing a false police report.

Just curious. How many FBI agents were at the show? I know. They are supposed to blend in with the crowd. Also, how many arrests were made?

This whole thing sounds like a pitch for an SNL skit: Two giant bags of dicks meet at a card show...
