    Safe deposit box not so safe!!

    Ran across this vid and was a little surprised (not really) at how easy the Feds can rob people. But what caught my ear was his statement about safe deposit boxes not being safe in general. He didnít elaborate so Iím not sure what he meant. Iíd like to know if they are indeed not safe, for whatever reason, as Iíve believed a safe deposit box at my bank was always the best place to safeguard certain things. Is that a myth? Please tell me what you know.

    Typical of government overreach. Violation of our rights and why we need to wring in government and hold them responsible. I believe all the things going one today is Treason and should be treated as so.

    If banks go bankrupt they can sell off the safe deposit boxes and not even notify you. They can also lose stuff from removing it. Look up wells fargo loses man's watch collection on google

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    Safe Deposit boxes are quite safe. What specific questions about them do you have? I worked in retail banking for a hot minute and know a thing or two.

    It's worth noting that these "safety deposit boxes" in the OP's video weren't in a bank, but were instead in a private business in a strip mall—where the owner of this business allowed people to rent them anonymously. Of course they were full of drugs, weapons and ill-gotten funds. Anyone with half a working brain cell should have known that this wasn't the best place to store one's valuables.

    I'm not a huge fan of safety deposit boxes; after all, it is still ultimately under someone else's control. But I think that it's a fallacy to assume that what happened to this private business in Los Angeles is representative of safety deposit boxes as a whole. I've yet to hear of something like this happening at a bank, where the rules around safety deposit boxes tend to be much stricter.

    What caught my ear was what the attorney said about safe deposit boxes not being that safe.
    Yes I know this was a private security vault here in the states. May as well been a u-store-it I guess, but still, the way the Feds went about taking everyone’s boxes is not legal and if some folks think that’s ok well it should enrage you and likely would if your valuables were involved. I know that if they get away with this, it will set the stage for mass asset forfeiture on a scale that many of you could not possibly imagine. But we’ll save that for another day. I’d like to know if what I’ve decided to lock away at my bank is indeed safe or is it at risk of being confiscated by a government entity for any nonsensical reason. I’m not talking about anything illegal or illegally acquired. Simply things of value that I felt sure would be safest in a bank vault.
    I’ve never heard that a safe deposit box is not safe until now. I think my question and the info I’ve posted is ample explanation of my inquiry. Why would this guy say those words as if they are factual. What is it I don’t know about a safe deposit box?
