Tips To Avoid Purchasing Stolen Goods

Run an inquiry on Stolen Lost Found Online and/or one of the other online stolen property databases to see if an item of interest has been reported as stolen goods. On Stolen Lost Found Online, as well as other online stolen property databases, a user can list important information such as serial number, a detailed description and even photos of stolen goods. Although there is no guarantee that the owner reported the stolen goods online, it is always a good first step in investigating a "too good to be true" deal.

Avoid purchasing "hot item" stolen goods from strangers. A "hot item" is stolen goods that are sold much more ofter than others. Learn what items these are and avoid buying them online. A few examples of commonly sold stolen goods are high-end liquor, Blu-ray movie discs and Dyson vacuums. The National Retail Federation recommends buying items such as these from authorized and established retailers only.

When in doubt, follow mom's wise advise "if it seems too good to be true, it is," and walk away. Always trust your gut instinct, if you sense red flags, suspicious behavior, questionable stories or just have a bad feeling about a deal, don't take a chance. It's better to spend a extra and get what you paid for.

Purchase Stolen Goods Legally

So you can't quite shake your deep love of a serious discount? Well, there are ways to get great deals on stolen goods legally! There are businesses that specialize in selling or auctioning stolen goods or confiscated goods.

How To File A Stolen Property Police Report

The first step in any occurrence of theft is to report the incident to the police immediately. This helps you recover the stolen item if it gets confiscated and helps with an insurance claim process on the account an official police report is required to file a claim.

Here are the general steps to file a police report:

  1. Call the non-emergency phone number for the local police station or law enforcement agency where the item was stolen.
  2. Obtain the physical address and go to the police station or law enforcement agency.
  3. Once there, go to the stolen property department if applicable.
  4. While creating a stolen property police report it's important to provide the theft detective or clerk with as many details as possible, especially the item's serial number, any identifying marks or stickers. Also include when, where and how the item was stolen.
  5. Once you have completed the report, be sure to obtain a copy and retain it for follow-up and recovery.

It's important to file a police report for theft, no matter how big, small or valuable the stolen item is, because it helps the police know a thief's (or thieves) M.O. and to control theft by using crime data to increase patrol in areas with a high or rising crime rate. Sometimes an area's theft rate can skyrocket because people don't report theft incidents because the stolen item isn't of high monetary value. This is called petty theft and is how a petty thief can continue stealing because the police are not made aware of their activity.
