Queen-Evie locked an important topic "Computer theft".  Many do not realize processors are serialized, I had a client that worked at a large NY security firm.  Any time a system goes on line there is a good chance it will be scanned unknowingly, for instance this is how MS flags pirate loads of their software and sends out the 30 day notices.  He told me of a laptop stolen in NY ended up in northern Canada and was retrieved.  If you even think something is stolen avoid it like the plague penalties can be quite stiff if caught.


Honesty & Integrity Above All!
