Thieving bastards!

Uggh. Someone walked up to my car and stole my phone and new laptop and my fiance's purse right out of it while we were moving things into our new apartment tonight!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

God, what a pain in the ass. It's a nice complex, too!

I can't even explain how irritated I am right now.

Dude, that SUCKS! Did they smash your window in? Make sure you file a report and get all the fiance's credit cards cancelled (as well as your phone service) ASAP.

People are scum.

Re: Thieving bastards!

Sorry to hear about your loss. I would be angry if it happened to me.

One of my friends is upset because her young son (about 9 years old) was in hospital having an operation and someone stole his Gameboy while he was sleeping.

Re: Thieving bastards!

Turn in your serial # on your laptop to the police if you still have it. Odds are that they're going to right to the pawnshop to get drug money.

Your phone service provider may be able to find out where your phone is.

^ Yep. If it's an iPhone, I think you can use Apple's "Find my iPhone" to locate it, and even wipe its information clean if need be (so the thieves can't get any personal info about you).

It's bound to be somebody local, so it's definitely worth telling the police if you haven't already. They know where these items are likely to be reset.

Welcome to the neighborhood.

Notify the police and the facility management then go hunt the bastards down Rambo-style... Or see if your insurance will cover it.

I'm sorry to hear that. Definitely notify the complex's management.

Bloody hell, cheeky bastards. Risky too, you could've returned anytime and caught him.

Right, have the mobile tracked either via Find my iPhone/Find my Droid or via your provider. Same for your computer if you have working WWAN.

Some people should just be shot on sight. No questions asked.

Cheeky gits.

Maybe it's a neighbourhood initiation ritual and you'll get them back tomorrow...

(... don't hold your breath... )

I heard on the local radio that some thieves in my city have been doing something similar recently too. Opportunistic toerags...

Re: Thieving bastards!

well, the purse was discovered this morning in some bushes. The only things missing were her cards, which she had already cancelled.

I had my phone service suspended until I can get a new one and changed all of my internet passwords just in case. I'll be contacting my insurance company after the holiday weekend to see what can be done there.

Thanks for the suggestions, all. I'll definitely look into some of these fancy security precautions for my next phone and laptop. Or perhaps I'll just install a self-destruct in my next laptop that can be remotely activated. Klingon bastards.

lol. Yeah, really! I want to leave all of my car doors open and wait in the bushes to see who approaches. My fiance thinks that this is a bad idea.

LOL! Yeah, I'm sure everything will be returned at the surprise party! My neighbors, what a bunch of rascals!

Thanks, guys.
