    Fraud. Plain and simple.

    Yes, well the headline is completely misleading. What he actually said at the press conference referenced in the story is:
    "I'm really not interested in the insurance money because it doesn't cover what I put into it," Ron Shore told a press conference in North Delta last week. "I am not responsible for this theft and I only seek to get the eagle back." - See more at: Not a scam: statue owner
    Not interested is different from refusing. I seriously doubt he would refuse to take a check if they offered one. Even he isn't THAT moronic. I think.

    I doubt insurance would pay him, by the way. In speaking with some insurance executives I know, they indicated that based on the completely idiotic way he elected to transport the eagle & decoy, the policy would probably be void. But if he did this, the profit would be in melting it down.

    By the way, has anyone noticed that during the last several stories/press conferences/radio interviews there is no mention of the Hunt? Gee, with all this press shouldn't he try to at least attract people to the Hunt? Given the dismal book sales you would think he would jump at the opportunity. But nope, after a few mentions early on, now all he talks about is his ludicrous idea for benefit concerts (which he would promote and take a piece of).

    I can see no way that he continues this hunt. And by his own rules, he has an out. Only way to raise money is through him being a concert promoter and based on the story behind all of this, I doubt that anyone would help him.
    1. Swapped the golden eagle as first prize for a million dollars.
    2. Two book versions of chapter two
    3. Swapped silver eagle for a lesser bronze plated eagle for chapter 5
    4. Had a decoy silver eagle made but had it with him along with the golden eagle and had both stolen
    5. Boasted at a concert that he had an expensive piece of art on him and in a backpack.
    Who is going to step forward and help him get a concert series started? Pretty good idea to raise funds, but not after all of this and his antics to get on The Apprentice. That in itself stripped him of any credibility.

    Dunno. I haven't submitted in weeks... I'm having a difficult time believing there are any prizes for this hunt.

    It's a convenient way to end the hunt and makes it look like there's nobody to blame.

    Everything I read just makes it sound more and more suspicious.

    I just don't understand how someone can be so careless. Especially when you were sold a valuable emerald at a discount by the Mel Fisher family because it was to be used for your charity.
    Ironic that the eagles were stolen during the solving of the Mel Fisher chapter.
