Sean Kingston Doesn't Have the Stones!

9/26/2008 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

When $500,000 worth of bling absolutely positively has to be there overnight, you might want to insure it for more than you would a cheap Persian rug.
Sean Kingston
Sources tell TMZ rapper Sean Kingston had his sister FedEx the jewelry (pictured above) from L.A. to a jeweler in NY. When the package arrived (a day late) -- no jewelry inside the box! Here's the problemo: Sis only insured it for $500 -- only a comma and three zeroes short of the mark.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Department now has the case. A rep for Kingston could not be reached for comment.

SCAM ALERT. His sister is a thief, and a stupid one at that.

I believe $500 was the max you can insure a Fed Ex package. He should have sent it another way, or for that matter, for half a mil worth of bling, taken it himself or flown his sister there with it. How bright can you get?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! SERVES YOU RIGHT. NEXT TIME YOU'LL PAY TO HAVE IT DELIVERED PROPERLY. I WOULDN'T SEND A PACK OF CIGARETTES VIA FEDEX, MUCH LESS A HALF MIL IN UNTRACEABLE DIAMONDS.

This guy needs "one" of his pieces of jewelry that costs more than I'll probably make in a lifetime, but nobody has the common sense to ship it right to avoid theft? How these bozos continue making this kind of money is beyond me.

I doubt the stuff was real to begin with. This boy has only had one hit song. That is hardly enough to make 1/2 a mil, let alone spend a 1/2 mil on jewlry. It was insured for $500 because that's all it was worth.

The Hope Diamond was shipped via USPS back in the 60s, was insured for $1,000,000 and wasn't lost.
