Full story below:

I installed Prey too many years ago. Maybe December, 2011? Well, when I did, I forgot to complete the operation, I just downloaded the software and I was happy. After the robbery I tried to activate the programme and I noticed that something was missing: the activation!! I lost my faith, but my smarter brother did something, I still don’t know what, and the reports began to appear 3 months after the robbery.

At that moment I started to know about the guy who bought my laptop. I was able to see his face, know his name, his address, his ID number, etc. Everything thanks to Prey… and many other thing that I’d rather forget, haha. I sent all that information to the public prosecutor, and the police investigation began.

This week I’ve safely recovered my laptop… and I’m blissful. THANKS, PREY!!
