WOT Serial Number Safety

Former user wrote on 4/14/2016, 7:34 AM
Tip for friends. A close friend of mine recently got burgled. She has had a hard time with the police because she could not present serial numbers for all of the items missing. Record the serial numbers of anything valuable (small electronics, TV, Ipads, etc) and file them somewhere safe like a safe deposit box, a friend's house, etc. Do not just leave them on a computer cause if that computer is stolen, it won't help.

That sure is a very good tip!

Haven't thought of that.

You do hear about thieves changing car reg codes, hope they will keep the serial numbers intact.

I don't take pictures but I do record the serials and email the list to myself. Then they are on gmail or one of my private domain email boxes.
