    Just got this alert from my dealer:

    "We are sad to report that an entire cargo container of JANOME Memory Craft 11000SE machines valued at over $1.7 million dollars was stolen on its way to the JANOME warehouse in New Jersey. We have a list of all of the serial numbers, and just want to caution you that if you happen to see a JANOME Memory Craft 11000SE for sale on the internet, you are probably looking at stolen goods and the FBI will be looking at it, too. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Paramount."

    So beware if you see a too-good-to-be-true deal on the Internet. If it turns out to be one of the stolen machines, I am pretty sure the police can confiscate it and you will be out your money and the machine.

    My mama always said, if it looks too good to be true,
    it probably is!

    WOW!!! I hope they are caught. I wonder if they even knew what was in the container before they opened it?
    I sure love my Janome 11000SE

    Yep. Just because you didn't know it was stolen when you bought it doesn't mean you get to keep it. Sucks if it happens to you but that's how the law is.

    how sad. i hope that no one gets taken on a too good deal. I also do hope that if some people are buying the stolen goods that the company might see it as a great PR op and maybe give a discount code of sort or something like that to those poor people who thought they were getting a good deal on something.

    My best friends husband is an investigator with UPS Freight. Have heard many strange stories from him about theft on a large scale like the one above. Most of the stuff that he investigates are "inside" jobs.

    I'll have to ask him if he's heard about this one.

    Now we have to ask the question:

    Did one of us mastermind this theft?

    Nah...

    My personal opinion is that there is nothing you do wrong that you can get away with forever. They will get caught, even if it is not right now.

    So sorry to hear this, but thanks for letting us know, so that we know if it's a great deal, there's something suspicious about the deal. Hope they catch whoever is responsible.

    we are talking an entire cargo container????

    They had NO clue what was in it...unless they were smuggling something inside of those machines...

    who can take and hide an entire cargo container???

    They will be punished one way or another. I am a firm believer that even if the police don't catch you God will always know.

    Mayabe if someone sees them on the website they can contact police or Janome.. Some people just don't have a conscience and belong in jail.

    It would have to be someone with a tractor trailor to haul it. And then stash it somewhere until they opened it. And when they opened it they had the surprise of their life to see if full of sewing machines.

    Honestly, most people don't understand how a sewing machine can cost as much as a used car. Or more then a big screen TV. "It's just a sewing machine" I've heard numerous times before I stopped mentioning how much mine cost-when I was asked by close friends.

    I told my kids simply " If it ain't yours don't touch it!"

    I made my daughter take back a candy bar and give it to the manager. She was a really cutey when she was small and he was going to do the" oh its nothing!" cause she was crying. I was standing behind her scowling at him shaking my head.He played along with me but I thought he was going to cry. lol She was only 3 but she remembers that to this day.

    Now with my son it was buttons. LOL And the same thing didn't faze him on little bit.

    Stealing food to feed your kids is one thing still wrong but I can at least understand it. But stealing sewing machines. Nope that's just greed.
