Why Is My Post Not Approved At Stolen 911

Managing a database of thousands of stolen items since 2007 has taught me one thing for sure.  You can't make everyone happy.  Since I take a personal interest in the integrity of this site, I find myself denying specific posts to go live and sometimes just banning the user permanently.  So you ask, why is my post not approved?  Maybe... Most of you get what Stolen 911 is all about.  It's a web application that allows people to post information about something that was stolen from them.  Creating this Digital Fingerprint gives the user a simple anchor point where others can find all the information to let them know the item is consider stolen by the user. Did that user make a police report? Let's hope so since it's the only way it will be taken seriously in an attempted recovery. I encourage users to tell the story of the theft.  It makes the post more compelling and relatable. These type of posts will get shared more on social media, Reddit, Nextdoor, and such.  More…

SPOT Trace Anti-Theft GPS Tracking Device

Stolen 911’s Pick for Quick and Easy GPS Tracking If they want it bad enough, they are going to get it.  A determined and usually the professional thief knows all the tricks.  A motorcycle can be picked up by two and put in a van.  A car can be towed or pushed.  A trailer can be hooked up and gone.  My point is, theft prevention is important and works in most cases, but the best defense is sometimes something the crooks can’t see.   As an auto theft investigator since 1998, my first choice in theft protection is GPS tracking.  Not the type that is installed by a technician at the car alarm store, definitely not a factory system like OnStar which is the first thing disconnected by the pros.  A small GPS tracker,  that alerts your when your property is moving and you hide yourself is what I use first.    I’ve been using different forms of GPS trackers since 2003, one of my favorites is the Spot Trace Anti-Theft Tracking Device. The Spot Trace includes all the features…

They come up to your car as your waiting for a traffic light and begin to wash your windows hoping you'll give them any spare change you may have. It’s been going on for a long time, and large cities throughout the US have similar situations. (more…)

6 Things to Do Right Away If Your Laptop Gets Stolen

There are an almost infinite number of places from which a laptop computer can be stolen, with some of the most common sites of laptop theft being airports, hotel rooms, cars, cafes, and offices.

Why Auto Thefts Make Halloween Even Scarier

According to the 2015 Holiday Vehicle Theft Report by the National Crime Information Center, Labor Day and New Year's Day were the 2014 holidays when the most cars were stolen. But just closely behind New Year's Day was Halloween, with 2,010 reported car thefts that day. Holidays prompt people to do things differently, and it may cause people to take chances they might not ordinarily. So it's essential that car owners don't let their guard down just because everyone's in costume, or because you're parked outside a great party at a friend's house. (more…)
