    ImHonest.com UK equivalent?

    While browsing on LifeHacker, I came across a service in the US called ImHonest.com. This is where you register you phones, laptops, etc and put a sticker on them so that people can contact you (via ImHonest) should it be found.
    ImHONEST.com | Online Lost and Found Service, ID Tags & Labels to Report and Return Items of Value

    Has anyone ever come across a similar service in the UK? Any good or bad experiences?

    Only thing I know of like this is immobilise - the home of the National Property Register and Recovery Service, which is used by all UK police forces to trace lost/stolen items, and apparently many railway lost property offices use it too (including TfL).

    I got a free 12 month subscription of the above when I purchased a laptop bag for my macbook last year.

    In a similar vein, I was in a neighbouring town last Saturday morning and I found a wristwatch. When I handed it in at the local police station the woman behind the counter looked surprised & said that they rarely had things handed in so often, 'as most people tend to keep the things they find'.

    I though to myself it might be the town itself, as most people that live there now are a bit chavvy - that's why I moved away. And no, I'm not being snobbish.

    Another vote for i-TRAK. Got a free 12 month account with a laptop bag as well. Now all of my equipment is registered with them. It's a peace of mind thing that if something does get lost - you have a "slightly" better chance of getting it back.
