    Setting up a fake site and baiting them with a message is probably the only way you will get anywhere.
    I think MSNP24 has changed this somewhat.

    I would go to the police and let them know, they might do something about it because the thief is probably a repeat offender, and it might be worth their while.
    I'm alright Jack

    Hi, I'd like to report a stolen computer.

    Of course, when was this computer stolen?

    In 2007

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    At least they could stand down the team and close the case.

    On the general subject of stolen pc's\data, there was some useful personal data on it (in the wrong hands!) what else should I do?

    I've changed all website passwords that may have been stored on the pc.
    I'll check the credit reports in the next few months also.

    Anything else worth doing\checking?


    New laptop has been setup with a truecrypt volume & proper passwords. So hopefully next time round we'll be a little more prepared!
    Skype them to tell them you’ve tracked their location. They’ll tulip themselves and wipe the device (perhaps).
    Chances are it will go for £10 for a bag of skag and end up in a 2nd hand shop wiped in any case.
    See You Next Tuesday
