A Long Bad Dream:

It was a burglary in the night. They used some kind of sniffing drug, so we dropped unconcisous and over slept. The thieves took all my belongings, including my laptop.

I set the laptop to missing on Prey and then I got the reports with screenshots and locations, but the police here is corrupt and ignored technology so they first never believed it work. Until I gave them money…

Luckily then they recovered my laptop, using the pictures that helped me recognize the thief and the police arrested him.

Thanks a lot!
