Hi, I kno' it's a bit late, but I learned a trick many years ago, use an indelible pencil to mark your items,
usually inside a battery compartment, main computers somewhere near a generally unseen area, cars:- a business card dropped down into the drivers door, cameras:- base plate & battery door & so forth..
Re:- your current situation - ask the Police to investigate, you have proof of purchase/the original box
& if it's a wireless mouse your Paring info on your computer...somewhere @ Apple the s/n is listed..L
Name: My Name's Mouse
Firmware Version: 0x84
Services: Apple Wireless Mouse
Manufacturer: Apple (0x3, 0x31c)
Vendor ID: 0x5ac
Product ID: 0x30d
This should be a unique number, if he will let you have access to his computer. It could prove one way or another.
Yes i know the serial number is between the two batteries, however i am looking for something on the packaging or maybe some reference on my computer (macbook pro) that will provide me with my own copy of the serial number that i can compare to the one on the mouse. I purchased the mouse seperately to my computer and i can't remember if i registered it with apple when i first bought it.
Since the MM was paired with your Mac, go to System Profile/Hardware/Bluetooth and see if its info is there as Jack has mentioned. The MAC address he has underlined is unique to the MM. If you can show that it was once paired to your Mac that should be proof enough that it was yours prior to this other person's possession.
