Reminded me of this story [news.bbc.co.uk]

Here though it's a Boeing that goes 'missing'..!

That's one hell of a big trenchcoat ;-)

A friend of mine gets about half a dozen, or more, 419 scam e-mails every day now.

They really have increased in volume. A year ago it was maybe a couple per month.

I knew a guy who stole three trucks and a small plane from the UK military ( when they controlled Malta ) ...dug holes in the rock ( Malta has very soft rock ) ...drove out the trucks from the depot ..down into the holes ..filled in the holes ...when the British left dug up trucks and sold them ...

Plane took longer ..3 years bringing everything out the dock gates a few peices at a time ..

Was parked on the side at Hal-far dragstrip ( ex airfield ) when I saw it ....

the guy actually looked like Phil Silvers "Bilko" with a Brighton accent.

Wow it say 30,000 barrels of oil are lost to fuel thieves each day. That is a loss of $ 1500000 $ per day.

Contrary to popular opinion, it's not that hard to "disappear" things as large as ships. Redo the registry designations, add some artistic "rust", sail away....

Ask any insurance investigator: while some ships have specific "profiles", most are pretty generic. It can take years for fraud on this scale to come home to roost. My son in law is in this business, and is a PI on the side; his stories will raise the hair on your neck....
