First Message To Uncle, No Luck

Another sign of life one week before Christmas, the laptop was connected to the Internet, still from Kuala Lumpur…

But this time, I set Orbicule to display a message to Uncle right after logging in:

This Mac was stolen, identifying information about you and your location has already been gathered, check out http://thisunclehasmymacbook.tumblr.com . Please contact <email> for instructions on how to return this computer. You will receive a reward if this computer is returned.

No luck :(.

It’s Still Alive

My stolen MacBook is still alive, and it was connected to the Internet again about half an hour ago. So whoever is using it now, apparently it hasn’t been used much at all!

Here’s the Orbicule log:

And the IP address is resolved to:

inetnum:      180.72.0.0 - 180.75.255.255
netname:      P1NETWORKS-MY
descr:        Packet One Networks (M) Sdn
descr:        Internet Service Provider
descr:        Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
country:      MY

So it is still in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Still no reply from the Malaysian police. Sigh, the IP address and camera capture should be enough to identify the person who has my MacBook.

Hello hello Malaysia! Malaysia Boleh?

Progress Update

So it has been 3.5 months since the last email from KLIA police station (officer Hamid and sergeant Mazni), I’ve sent several emails since, and there has been no reply from them. Rather disappointing.

There’s a bit of hope though. I contacted Australian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur and they suggested me to contact CyberSecurity Malaysia, who finally replied my email on July 12th, 2011, stating that they’ve escalated my case to Commercial Crime Division of Bukit Aman Police Station in Kuala Lumpur.

So now I have a case number. Yay!

I’ve emailed the Commercial Crime Division and sent them all of the information I have about the case: photos, screen captures, and logged IP addresses.

Internet, help me?

This is the uncle who has my MacBook. Remember, he might be an innocent victim who unknowingly purchased the stolen laptop from the thief. Please be nice.

The IP call log screenshot on Orbicule Undercover Center dashboard. The first three connections to the Internet were short ones on April 27, 2011, but unfortunately they weren&#8217;t long enough for iSight to capture any photo. The connections on June 1, 2011, finally sent a screen capture and an iSight photo.

Uncle, you can check the serial number of my MacBook against the serial number on the photo above. I blurred the last four characters. You can also contact Apple resellers in Kuala Lumpur, they&#8217;ll be able to verify that the MacBook was reported as stolen.
