Yep, more drama. I've had enough with the apparently dishonest types from LA...
About 2 weeks ago, shortly after I'd almost wrapped up dealing with my first problem with theives, I had another robbery take place. This one happened at my place of employment.
I'm not exactly sure what happened, but I believe that I went to work, as normal, and set my mobile phone on my desk, as I am of habit of doing. At some point during the morning, I noticed that the phone was missing, and thought I might have left it in my car. There was no phone in the car.
So, I reported it missing, and filed a claim with my mobile phone insurance carrier.
The good news is, that a simple deductible later, and 3 days, and I had a new phone. The bad news? No phone numbers. I've lost numbers that I can never get back. And I've lost contact with some of the people I had in my old phone.
So, did I actually have my phone stolen, or did I lose it? I maintain that I had it stolen. A call was placed from my phone about 20 minutes after I arrived at work, which I did not make. It was placed to a number at my company that VERY few people at the company would have known was a working number. And, then, later in the day, after noon, the phone was used to access the internet.
It's frustrating. But, again my blind trust in the people around me has been challenged. I hope that the robberies will stop soon.
As far as my home, I've installed a security system which seems to be QUITE happening! Yep, it's one of those X-10 systems, you know, the people that have the incredibly annoying pop-up ads. But, the system works great, was cheap, and lets me feel at ease at home now!
