Paying Off My Mortgage By Selling Rhino Horns

Recommended Posts


A man tried to illegally sell £15,000 worth of endangered black rhino horns as he struggled to pay his mortgage, a court heard.

Clifford Bardelli, aged 52, had been given two pieces of horn as keepsakes by his former boss when he worked as a silversmith.

But when his long-term partner left him hard-up Bardelli approached two Chinese herbalists and tried to sell them - despite being told it was illegal.

He was caught when one of them dialled 1471 after he called and passed his details to police who arrested him.

Certainly if you could get market value it would pay off the mortgage far quicker than collecting cash off the floor.
