should have mailed dry ice.  no evidence then...

also great way to kill someone.  trick them into going into a locked room filled with dry ice.  They die, no evidence.

The article author is not very imaginative.   The idea is to have something the weight of the iPad oddly disappear during shipment and then collect the insurance.    Of course, ice is a bad idea.   Dry ice might have been better, but still probably noticeable as anybody whose worked with it can tell you.    Water would condense on these cold boxes in most climates and get soggy or frosted as well (in addition to even more onerous "smoke" coming from the boxes).

Well, you'd have to vent the room before anyone finds the body.  Otherwise, they're going to know they walked into a room full of CO2 pretty quickly.

Still, great idea, and might just be the best Valentine's Day gift I can think to give.  "Here, honey!  A room full of dry ice for all your refrigeration needs!  Check it out!  That's right.  The diamond is right under that block in the corner.  You're gonna love it!"

Until the autopsy, plenty of evidence then.

But even dry ice would/should have raised suspicions.  As anyone who has worked with it knows, it's cold as all fark even through a several layers of cardboard.  And of course the vapor.  An air tight package would explode in some time as well.

Whose Farker that submitted a link to their own dillhole Blog?

I've read this one in someone's collected works, circa 1930. Railroad postman gets tempted by this tightly wrapped, heavily insured package from one jeweler to another, decides to risk it and open the package only to find fraud. And the dry ice.

No, what you do is ship the box with a broken iPad.

 It's not like everyone has an iPhone that can let them know when it's raining.

Or the dumb biatch could look out her window with the open curtains and clearly see that it's farking raining.

/hate that commercial.

The sentence for Nigel will run concurrently with the 39-year-to-life sentence he has from his parents for being named Nigel.

The number of farkers mentioning that dry ice would have been a better idea gives me hope and/or fear for the future.  Hope for the intelligence displayed, fear because you'll all be tempted to become supervillians.

In any case, your comments are ... (dons sunglasses) ...

I am pretty sure the vapor escaping the package would be a bigger red flag than the puddle the ice left. Not a good plan either.

You know what they should have done instead?  Get jobs.  It's actually a lot less trouble than going through these elaborate schemes that end up with people making fun of you on the internet.

Why bother unless you're going to open it in front of a postal worker to "prove" that the item is missing? It doesn't sound like they did that, just received the package and then filed a claim. May as well have sent a block of wood in that case.
