CBS Evening News – Police Database / Stolen Macs- laptops
This situation is more prevalent than you may think. We estimate that 1 in 6 laptops (Approx. 9,734,935 million) will be stolen in the next 24 months in the US. 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.
