Reporting Stolen Computers

Dell

If Your Computer Is Lost or Stolen If your computer is lost or stolen, Dell suggests that you perform the following steps: 1. Call a law enforcement agency to report the lost or stolen computer. Include the service tag in your description of the computer. Ask that a case number be assigned, and write it down. Also write down the name, address, and telephone number of the law enforcement agency. If possible, obtain the name of the investigating officer. If you know where the computer was lost or stolen, call a law enforcement agency in that area. If you do not know, call a law enforcement agency where you live. 2. If the computer belongs to a company, notify the security office of the firm. 3. Call Dell technical assistance to report the missing computer. Provide the computer’s service tag, the case number, and the name, address, and telephone number of the law enforcement agency to which you reported the missing computer. If possible, give the name of the investigating officer. The Dell support technician will log your report under the computer’s service tag and flag the computer as missing or stolen. If someone calls Dell for technical assistance and gives your service tag, the computer is identified automatically as missing or stolen. The technician will attempt to get the phone number and address of the caller. Dell will then contact the law enforcement agency to which you made the report of the missing or stolen computer.
