stolen Apple desktops

Hi all, especially for you in South Africa
We had a break-in and three Mac Tower desktops – Quadcore, Dualcore and g4 with lots of drives stolen. Plse let me know if you know anyone selling or buying this gear as I have lost a LOTS of data and pix on then. they took our PC backups too. 2 Canon Eos 5Ds stolen too, one a mk II. So we have lost a lot of images if we cannot get this back. and yes, shouyld have been offsite…

I think the only way to hope of getting anything back is by scouring the places where fences sell stolen stuff, with an undercover police officer. It´s a long shot, and you´ll probably have to pay the cop a “commission” (that´s how it works in all of Latin America) but it´s the only way I can see to getting the stuff back. It will take lots of time, some money and may well be fruitless, so you have to consider that. You also have to be very smart about how you do it, for example, not to only be interested in the things that were stolen in the lot, or only in some of them, so as not to let on that you are the victim. You also have to have the money with you to buy, and an armed officer with backup to make the arrest. Lazy parasites, is all I can say.

If you were using Instant Messenger or something like that which booted up upon startup, you may be able to find some people who can, for instance, obtain IP addresses from AIM. Or, if you had any software that connected to an account somewhere (for example, if they use your iTunes to buy stuff), or they use it to buy something (steal your personal info, use the credit card to buy something), the vendor may be convinced to give you an IP address.
I’m a big fan of your work, by the way, thank you for all your photos and writing.

Greg,

Check Gumtree, I’ve found many crims here like to use it to rid themselves of the goods. Generally it’s passed onto those who use the site as a clearing house.
