PostSubject: Don't lose your camera   Fri Sep 03, 2010 4:31 pm

How many of us ever put a camera down on a table on holiday and forget it?

Try this:
Write your name and address and phone number on a piece of paper.
You can also add your passport numbers if you like.

The next bit is simple... take a photo of it!

If someone *honest* finds your camera, they then have a way of returning it to you.
Likewise if you lose your passport you'll have a record of the issue number.

The dishonest ones won't take a blind bit of notice... the camera was lost anyway so nothing more is lost.
I was also asked, "what about identity theft?"... Well, it's an issue I suppose, but I don't see any more info here than what's pretty much available in a phone book.

Like any tips or tricks, use the info if you like, discard it if you don't like Very Happy

I left my digital camera under a seat in the theatre on Queen Mary 2. Went to Lost Property next morning confident a cleaner or A N Other would have handed it in;I was believing that everybody on a ship like that would be decent.Never saw it again.

I found a mobile phone on the ground in a car park outside M&S Customer Collection in Birkenhead.The only way I could find who owned it was to access the contacts directory for a number I could phone.Owner, a rough Scouser judging by his accent and appearance, collected it from my home and brought me a decent bottle of Aussie wine as a thank you.

Never judge a book by its cover.
