Thefts of the popular Apple iPod are common (CMPD has recorded 100 such thefts between 12/9/2005 and 6/26/2006). Common among the CMPD reports is the lack of iPod serial numbers, indicating that most of the victims do not know their iPod’s serial number. There are several resources available to assist in obtaining that information, including the original iPod packaging and, perhaps the purchase receipt. Another way to determine the iPod serial number is to access the iTunes (version 6 or later) program on the computer they download music from. The serial number of the last iPod connected to the computer will be displayed.
