So... How does all this work?
What do I have to do?
After taking 2 minutes to create an account
with us, you
will be able to create a label for each piece of property that you'd
like to protect. Just print them out on label stock, we suggest
Avery Heavy Duty (L7063). Once printed it's just a matter of sticking
them on the items.
Why do I need this anyway?
Why don't I just put my own phone number and/or address on my stuff? Identity theft is widely regarded as one of the fastest growing crimes. Thanks to computers, and the internet, people now have access to more than just phone books. They also have access to 'reverse lookup' phone books.
Here are some examples from different countries, Australia
and the USA
. The last thing you want to put on your lost house keys is your address. With access
to information like this, attaching your phone number is just as dangerous. Using us as the finder's point of contact keeps you safe.
What happens if you lose
As long as it's labeled, the person who finds it will see the sticker
and follow the instructions. Our computer system will match the item to your
account. Depending on which account you sign up for;
How do we make any money?
- If you sign up to our Premium Account, for only $10/year,
as soon as the item is reported as found you will be smsed and emailed instructions.
You may then call our Direct Response System, at your leisure. When you call
you will be put through directly to the person who found your property, where you
can arrange how to collect it. Our Direct Response System allow us to achieve the
fastest response times ever in Lost Property Recovery;
- On the other hand if you signed up to one of our Free
Accounts, when your item is found and reported you will be emailed infoming you that
the item has been located. There will be a $20 recovery fee involved in order to
contact the item's finder.
We offer two account types. A Premium Account costing $10/year giving
you instant access the people who find your items. Then there is a Free
Account this allows you to label your items for free, but if you lose
it and lostuff comes to the rescue then there is a fee to contact to
person who finds it.
about my privacy? Do you reveal any of my contact information?
We take privacy extremely seriously! Unlike almost all other Property
Recovery solutions on the market, the information of both parties is
kept entirely secure, unless of course you choose otherwise. All
comunication is done via our Proprietory Recovery Systems masking both
parties identities for total peace of mind.
