Posted 1/14/2008 11:59:01 PM , Burglarized, Please Help if you see "me" online
Score: 0 


I've played online with many of you in the forums for years now, and I'm hoping that you can help me, should you see my Xbox Live or PlayStation Network ID online at any time. I have many of you on my friends lists.

Tonight, I was robbed - the thieves got my big screen TV, my 2 computers (and my new LCDs for my monitors), my wife's laptop, all of our Blu Rays, HD-DVDs, my Xbox 360, my 60GB PS3, and more.

My 2 computers house the code for my web site (which I have worked on for years), and of course, much of my personal keepsakes, like pictures. If you happen to see either "larsoncc" online for PSN or "Fatman Games" online for the Xbox 360, please report it either the Chicago Heights police, or me directly.

My entire meatspace and online identities are locked up on those computers. I have backups, but I have to go to basically every web site I've ever visited and change passwords (used Firefox to save passwords, karma's a bitch).

Thanks.

PS - they left my cat and my dog alive, for which I'm grateful. It's just "stuff".

I'm gonna leave my Facebook up 24/7- it's got my Gamertag and Friends List built in. I'll keep a vigil open for the imposter(s).

Also- notify MS immediately, that way they may be able to help track the gamertag and assist in tracking it down (as well as prevent tampering with your account any further)

Done - I contacted them as soon as I got home last night.  They recommended keeping the account open, so that's what I'm doing.

Yikes! That's rough, man. Since I don't have a 360 or PS3 all I can offer you right now is my sympathy. Here's hoping you can get some of that stuff back.

Did you register the PS3 and 360?  I wonder if those things have a MAC address...

And had it not been for the cowardus of your fellow man, you wouldn't be in the great situation you are now. Beautiful house, tons of new more EXPENSIVE stuff, pets alive and willing to kill all future intruders =D.

I'm not much of a believer in destiny, but I think things happen for a good reason. I for one think the new site is a testiment to your dedication and resolve. Thumbs up!
