Stolen Camera Finder - scam?
Apr 2, 2012

Last week I had my 5d II, 24-70, 70-200 and 580ex II flash stolen.

I have absolutely no leads, so signed up for the pro account on http://www.stolencamerafinder.com/

Using the serial number in the exif data, it is supposed to search the internet for images taken with the camera/lenses.

I have taken loads if images with this equipment available online, but there are no results. The search takes 1 second, which makes me think the search is not very thorough - if it does anything at all.
Anyone had success with this site?
