number be assigned and write down the number, along with the name, address, and telephone number of the law enforcement agency. If possible,
obtain the name of the investigating officer.
If you know where the computer was lost or stolen, call a law enforcement agency in that area. If you do not know, call a law enforcement
agency where you live.
If the computer belongs to a company, notify the security office of the company.
Contact Dell customer service to report the missing computer. Provide the computer Service Tag, the case number, and the name, address, and
telephone number of the law enforcement agency to which you reported the missing computer. If possible, give the name of the investigating officer.
The Dell customer service representative will log your report under the computer Service Tag and flag the computer as missing or stolen. If someone calls Dell
for technical assistance and gives your Service Tag, the computer is identified automatically as missing or stolen. The representative will attempt to get the
phone number and address of the caller. Dell will then contact the law enforcement agency to which you made the report of the missing computer.
