    Thanks for reading this.

    Here's my story:

    My ipod touch was stolen while I was at a public place. Afterwards I found a craigslist posting that offered an open with the exact case + screen saver of of my ipod. the time they posted the ad is also 2 hours after it was stolen. i plan on getting it back and might need some law enforcement help. the person probably reset the ipod as i jailbroke it and had a password on it. the problem is that i have restored the computer with which is was in synced. however, the ipod touch was actually exchanged at an apple store because my old one broke and they gave me a new one.

    can anyone please tell me if there is a way to get evidence that clearly show the ipod is mine.

    thank you guys so much.

    The serial # is all you need.

    Is there any place you think I could locate the serial number? the apple store at the place I got the ipod is closed, but i'm going to call them first thing tomorrow morning.

    The computer you synced the iPod with has the serial in iTunes. Google how to find it.

    Also Apple gave you a recipt with the serial on it.

    I'm also thinking the police are a good place to go. I don't know much about craigs list but can you report them at all?

    Unfortunately, my computer was restored, so the first option is not plausible. The receipt was only thrown away.

    the only thing I can count on right now is that the apple store center guy somehow registered my serial number on that day for my. can anyone give an idea how likely this is?

    I can report them, but unfortunately, I don't think that will at all. That's why i'm looking for some convicting evidence that the ipod is mine.

    How will they know which serial number was yours?

    I filed an apple appointment, and when I left the store they gave some slip, my only hope right now is banking on whether or not apple store somehow associates my name with their registering my number
