Thread: Stolen Laptop can Insurance track it

  1. #1

    Default Stolen Laptop can Insurance track it

    Hi guys,

    I am thinking of buying a 2nd hand laptop from a pawn shop but want to get it insured if I buy it. Now with it being a Pawn shop sometimes they can have stolen goods so my question is. If it is stolen and the person claimed for it already and I now try to get it insured can the insurer track that it is stolen?

    I just dont want to spend 4k and when I try to insure it, i find out its stolen and land myself in the *****.

    You are already having doubts...so don't but it rather spend 4k at a proper retailer.

    I do feel like I want to walk away but the price is tempting and within my budget.

    I guess I will rather just leave it because I dont want to be caught with stolen items if it is.

    You cant track something from thin air (unless James Bond style GPS trackers or that Ipad/Mac app), even if you use internet its still way off.

    PROTIP: The laptop could have been abused etc, so i would rather get a new one.

    OP: Do you mind telling us about the deal (more for our amusement)?

    If not a fear of being caught, would you buy it knowing it is stolen?
