Definately sounds odd.....almost sounds like they want you to register your hardware in hopes of stealing it from you?
I mean, how easy will it be toAre they going to search for a description of the item or something? I mean, how many units of each major piece of 'ICE' are there? I guess the original owner could some how scratch a serial number in their 'ICE'. But the seller wouldn't provide info like a serial number scratched into the part.'allowing potential buyers to check the authenticity of a piece of kit before buying it.'
In terms of making itI don't think that's possible. Look at cell phones.....when one is reported as stolen here in the states, it's still easy to get one reactivated. They have their own system of tracking stolen goods, which doesn't work well.'make it so hard for thieves to sell stolen equipment, that your valuable audio and navigation equipment becomes much less of a tempting target.'
The website sounds like a great advertising ploy, just falls short on the effectivity of it's aim. Personally, there's no way I'd register there if I could.....sounds more like a scheme to get my address and info, to sell it to others to steal my stuff or something.
I wonder if they'd sell me back my stolen stuff? lol?
