No matter how valuable your collection of Star Wars action figures may be, it is not a good idea to try and use them to settle a debt with unsavory types interested only in cold, hard cash.
Back in September 2010, a man was kidnapped and murdered after trying to pay off his debts with his action figures. The perpetrator of this alleged crime is a Mexican national who had been working in a California hotel under an alias. He’s now on his way back to Mexico to face justice. The next time you owe money to gangsters, let this be a lesson. Ebay those action figures first.
