Pretty sure I've seen this story before...

Almost exactly. Here on DPReview. Not with the email copies or with such detail but essentially the very same story. Even to the extent that there was to be a new insurance product available to cover such a scenario. Or else I'm having serious deja-vu issues.

Why anyone would part with valuable equipment to a complete stranger is beyond my comprehension, nevertheless it happens and probably with a satisfactory conclusion most of the time. I suspect that the risk is very high indeed though, contrary to the facilitator's claims. It's not one I would even consider if I hadn't seen the previous and this warning. I would not lend it to a friend even, considering that I've lent several books over the years and never had them back despite asking.
