A professor in Sweden had his laptop stolen, but the thief mailed him a USB drive with all of the data from his computer. The professor left his bag in the hallway of his apartment building for a few minutes when he went to check on his laundry. When he returned the bag was missing. The thief only took the laptop and a week later mailed the professor his backed-up data. What a thoughtful thief.
