To compound the problem, even if the police were to find the thief and recover your laptop, they have almost no idea who owns it or how to get it back to you! Why? Because you never wrote down the serial numbers and the paperwork accompanying it is long gone. You filed a police report, but with no serial number to report, your laptop could be stored away in some police evidence room with thousands of others just like it across the state or across the country, never to be returned to you again.
Thats where JustStolen.net comes in.

Thefts of laptops is increasing alarmingly. In the last month or so, three laptops have been stolen from our Dept of Human Services (welfare). These laptops contain personal info including SSN’s for thousands of people and were all stolen from personal vehicles and residences after office hours.
Begs the question “If these were so important, why were they allowed to leave the office?” In this case , I feel the fault lies with the Dept. of Human Services, as much if not more, than the thieves, because they are the ones that put them in harms way.
And guess who foots the bill for replacing the laptops? rrrrr
