So the jewellery was ‘valued at’ $100,000 but could be yours for just four easy payments of $49.95?

If you can afford 100K to spend on a few rocks, surely you could afford ot live in Franklin?

Well, they did name the Franklin Mint after the suburb, and that reeks of good taste…

The crap some people spend their money on….

If you can afford 100K to spend on a few rocks, surely you could afford to not live in Franklin?

Maybe should have spent 200 dollars on a safe???

Try at least $2,000 on that safe and you might be getting somewhere.

A $200 safe isn’t going to do diddly.

I have a 90 fire box from bunnings. A run of the mill druggo won’t be getting into it.

Also, if you can afford 100 k on jewellery you can afford 2 k on something to keep it safe from scumbags.

I realise most people have a lot more money than I do but doesn’t $100k in jewellery sound like a lot to have in a house?

It does a bit.

I wonder if it was in a safe?
