The FBI has opened an investigation after a routine banking transfer from Switzerland to New York City came up $1.2 million short. The money, all $100 bills was reported missing after being counted at the Federal Reserve.

Investigators are trying to determine if the money was taking from the cargo hold prior to departure, or after landing in New York. The Port Authority, and Swiss International Airlines both declined to comment, but the airline did say that there was indication any valuables were removed from the aircraft.


NEW YORK — FBI agents were investigating a report that about $1.2 million disappeared from a shipment of cash flown from Switzerland to New York City as part of a banking transaction, authorities said Tuesday.

The U.S. currency — all $100 bills — was reported missing on Monday after a count of the money at the Federal Reserve came up short.

There was never a "missing 2.3 Trillion".


In fiscal 1999, a defense audit found that about $2.3 trillion of balances, transactions and adjustments were inadequately documented. These "unsupported" transactions do not mean the department ultimately cannot account for them, she advised, but that tracking down needed documents would take a long time. Auditors, she said, might have to go to different computer systems, to different locations or access different databases to get information.

I wish it would have fallen out of the jet over my property. I mean it won't be like winning the lotto but it would make my life a little easier. I could get the roof reshingled before it gets curled.

the local reports (NYC) all seem to indicate an inside job. The money was stashed in a container inside a container and they went straight for the inside container.

Should be an interesting story to follow. Very much like the Lufthansa heist.

Looks like it was taken from JFK........


Investigators now believe the theft of $1.2 million from a Swiss Air Lines flight occurred after the plane landed John F. Kennedy International Airport, a source tells ABC News. The investigation will still take a “couple more days,” the source said. “Today will tell the story.” Investigators initially believed the money was taken before the flight took off from Zurich on Saturday by someone who either knew what was in the crates or saw a target of opportunity.

You are right though.......

Someone is a very happy or very scared person tonight. Maybe both.......

Now, is the money traceable? If it is it wasn't worth the heist.

I think hes holding out for a better script !


Swiss security has more holes than its cheese. A container holding $600 million worth of loose diamonds was left sitting with a gaping hole on the bottom at the same JFK warehouse where thieves swiped $1.2 million in cash last week, The Post has learned.
