    Hello everyone,

    this past weekend my apartment was robbed. the thief stole my 1st gen 16gb ipod touch and my tuition money. i thought all was lost until i got an email:

    it turns out whoever has possession of the ipod has connected to the internet and shared a youtube video with "orfdcmmhjfcv@vvb...bvbbbhf@vbgyhgteyyttgtt@ x@@aqqqh" sent from my gmail account from ipod mailer.

    i got a delivery status notification (Failure) email possibly containing DNS and IP information. the DNS is (adsl-99-34-170-XXX.dsl.sfldmi.sbcglobal.net [99.34.170.XXX]). i have hidden the last numbers in case there is some rule about posting IPs.

    basically, my question is what can i do with this information? it looks like it may be in Southfield, Michigan which i will call SBC tomorrow and confirm. i feel like this can be a break in finding the thief who stole my stuff.

    i am desperate and any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks =(

    Definently call the cops they help you more than what you can do by yourself. Hope all goes well and please tell what happens.

    Damn... sorry about that.
    You should report it to the police, straight-away.

    Wow, really sorry to hear about your loss, buddy...

    Most importantly though, you must have lodged a police report about the theft right? The police would then have a record on your case already... Just give them this information and hopefully, they can use it to track down the perpetrators...

    Don't understand what's wrong with people nowadays...

    set up a sting. if he can read your gmail on the ipod, then create another e-mail account, send a picture of a hot friend of yours (or a friend of a friend), and say something like, "Looking forward to meeting you on our first blind date tonight. here is what I will be wearing." then wait for him to get there, and then kick him in the head.

    orry for the confusion, but i have already filed a police report. i gave them the name of 2 suspects and they already got their phone numbers. i am basically trying to do some leg work on my own at this point to help them in any way possible.
