report it to the police - possession of stolen goods - anyone who knew anything about cameras would never have written it that way.

I saw a similarly VERY suspiciously stolen lens (300 2.8) being offered - and after I sent an e-mail asking the scum if he had the original purchase receipt I was NOT surprised that I NEVER heard anything back from the guy - so I started to look online for info on how to contact the police in the area (a suburb) of my city - and all I found was miles, and miles of red tape - and it obviously would have taken me forever to try to get this info to the police.

It started to become obvious to me that all the hoops the police set up for reporting this type of scam gave the suggestion that the police don't even really want the hassle of being informed of even obvious scams.

I guess there are just zillions scams going on out there - and the police DON'T have the manpower to go searching for the culprits.
