So I have a friend who went to visit his parents out of state, and while he was gone, his apartment was broken into, and one of the things stolen was his PS3. Within days of it being stolen, someone was logging onto PSN using his login account so they can access the games he has on the system, play online, whatever, I dunno, apparently they're just a dumbass.
But maybe not, since he's gone to the cops, called Sony, and no one is willing to make an effort to track down an IP address to find out the location of the PS3. I've been trying to give him advice, but, I'm not going to sugar coat it, he's a bit on the odd side, so he's just resorted to sending the guy threatening messages through PSN telling him that someone at Sony actually has provided information when they haven't. Obviously, this guy must know he's full of shit at this point since he just keeps logging on and playing games anyway.
Anyone have any experience with trying to track down a stolen console that is being used online? It seems like something there would be a system in place for finding, but i guess taking consoles online is still pretty new in the scheme of things, and, well, we are talking about Sony, who isn't known for being able to communicate with, much less assist their customer base when issues arise.
I don't expect much to happen, but I do know the PSN ID of the guy who has the PS3 now. If anyone has anything to offer as far as advice or assistance, that would be great.
