This involves a little expense to begin with - you need to buy one of those marker pens whose writing can only be read under infra-red light. You then spend every Saturday touring Dixons, Comet etc. and write your postcode and house number on all the electrical appliances, stereos, TVs, fridges etc. that you can manage.
After a year or so, you should begin to receive weekly calls from the police asking you to come and collect 'your' property from the latest batch of swag they have recovered.
All you need then is an eBay account and there you go! Riches beyond the dreams of avarice!

Oh my goodness- that is one of the sneakiest things I have ever heard !!!
I have been burgled though and I just couldn't cope with the fact that I was profiting from someone else's misery...not everyone has insurance....living in an area badly affected by June's floods, it has become clear just how many people don't have contents insurance...
I hope people don't go trying this one out!
