    On the contrary, a career in delivery would be perfect for a klepto! :p: So, you didn't have to look up 'kleptomaniac', eh? I learnt it in Psychology at school, what's your explanation? Were you diagnosed with it after being fired from your job as a delivery person? Hmm?!
    You'll be shocked... but I learnt it in Psychology too :p: And yup, it would be the perfect job

    Nothing wrong with a bit of healthy Kleptomania haha

    Dammit! Thought I solved the mystery of the stolen iPod there. And nahh, nothing wrong with 'suffering' a bout of kleptomania every now and then (especially if you're in the house of some idiot who leaves his pocketable valuables alone with strangers...) :rolleyes:

    Just a thought, but don't you think delivery men with sticky fingers might not last a long time in the business? Particularly if they had a penchant for stealing high value, regularly used, easily missed electronics?

    Before you jump to conclusions do a bloody good search. Not saying you are but I remember in Sainsburys I was accused on numerous occasions by stuck up customers that I had stolen their wallet/card.. I never got an apology.

    If they stole it, you're never going to get it back.

    1. That's such a ridiculous argument, how many legal cases are based on absolute proof, it's all about the balance of probabilities. If we follow your argument only people who filmed crimes taking place would get convictions.
    2. When you move house it's a busy thing, someone would have noticed a tramp walking up my garden path, into the house, through the hall, into the dining room, swiping my iPod and then leaving again.
    3. I'm obviously going to wait until all the boxes are empty until I do anything with the police.
    4. Who the hell has a porn collection in 2010? It's called a bookmarks folder now.

    The removal men I used stole 2 guitar amps. The police say it's an unwitnessed theft so won't pursue it and my insurance doesn't cover the stolen amps either, so I really sympathise with you.

    No, I don't think you have a case. There is no way to prove they stole it, no witnesses. A dirty old tramp could of walked through the front door while they was doing their thing and stole it for all you know.

    Or, better yet.....it is in the bottom of your porn collection box, so no need to get hacked off fella
    Most legal cases are based on whatever's most likely according to evidence, not what can be proven to be true. We try to prove guilt, innocence and the verisimilitude of available evidence. From an epistemological point of view, virtually nothing can be proven anyway, so if the law required a completely watertight case that could be 100% proven, virtually nobody would get convicted of anything.

    You can't prove it, hence no case. On the downside you lost a valuable item, on the upside, the removal men have a bit of Cher to listen to.

    I thought you had to prove it "beyond reasonable doubt"?

    Any good solicitor in this case would be able to reasonably doubt it was the removal people that took it.

    All you have to do is contact the removal people, and if no luck then the police, get a crime number and claim on your insurance. Oh - and learn a valuable lesson.


    Edit - have you tried contacting the new owners of the previous house? Maybe it was left there by mistake.

    I sympathise. Removal men stole my hairdryer, one tv, and some straighteners. Serves them right though, none of it was working :P

    Ring them up and say that you have CCTV and caught them on it stealing it, and that if they give it back to now you'll say nothing more about it, but if they don't you'll take it to the police.

    I know you don't, but if they did take it they would almost certainly give it back- and if they didn't then I have no idea what you'd do then, apart from look stupid, but hey it's an iPod, I'd rather look a bit daft if I had the chance of getting it back!

    How likely is it that he has a CCTV camera in his dining room? They'll know it's a bluff and call him on it.

    But a computer with a webcam left on would be believable.

    You think that you have it bad? When I was 8, the guy who came round to fit the carpet stole my Jason power ranger! I'm still bitter about it now.
