    UPS loses family's $846,000 inheritance- CBC

    Bank draft goes missing and TD Canada Trust is in no rush to issue new one

    An Ontario family is locked in a lengthy, three-way David vs. Goliaths battle after courier company UPS lost a bank draft worth more than $846,000 and TD Canada Trust — the bank that issued it — appears to be in no rush to issue a new one.

    "It was a total surprise" Lorette Taylor told CBC News this week about the ordeal. "Never in my wildest imagination did I think something like this would happen."

    Taylor and her husband John say they're at their wit's ends trying to recover the money.

    I’d bet the bank draft envelope slipped into the crack at the end of a belt and was destroyed by the belt motor. Saw it happen several times when I was a preloader.

    I think it was mispaled and delivered to United Way. Probably deposited and spent already on morning donuts and coffee.

    The UPS tariff limits the amount that a check can be insured for------I am trying to look on ups.com but it is loading really slowly-----but I do know that a check for that amount cannot be insured for its full value.

    Its funny though, funds came from the bank. Its not like the money was stolen and another check couldn't be written. This isn't a first time occurance I'm sure. Cancel out the first note, re-write. Its not like an original painting shipped then smashed by the local sort.

    I once found a NDA envelope wedged into the door channel of my P800. From the looks of it it had been there for years.

    UPS will pay the stop payment fee on a check, they will not insure the value of the check

    I don't think a check for any amount can be insured

    no intrinsic value, just a piece of paper

    Once a year my office receives a package of all loose foreign currency that has fallen out of packages. It's a pretty good sized package.
