Lady Enters Security With $24,000 Rolex, Leaves Without, Suit Alleges - The Consumerist

by Ben Popken, The Consumerist

...[she] said she was preparing to board a return flight to Jacksonville last February when she was ordered by security officers to put her watch in a bin and place it on a conveyor belt. She said she objected several times but was told she had no choice if she wanted to board her flight, so eventually she complied.

...[she] said she became hysterical after realizing the watch was gone. She called Shirk for advice. She asked for police to be called, but security officers told her she was disrupting the area and had to leave.

(end excerpt)

TSA! TSA! TSA!

First, I think this better fits in the P&OC forum since we are talking a federal agency.

Second, I would never drop $24k in something that easy to lose or steal.

If the Rolex was taken during the security check I would think the airport or security company would be responsible for replacing it.

You'd think that...and apparently, you'd be wrong. LOL.

My Rolex isn't a $24,000 one by a damn sight but I don't like putting it in bins either.
