Well it was difficult to get the tone right here so bear with me.
I can understand your concerns here. Bear in mind that i'm getting this second hand from a sister who doesn't even know what the 'home' button is.
I don't know my niece that well but ive discussed this with my sister, and from knowing her, and from knowing how she raises her kids i'm satified they are not up to no good.
I dont like the idea that anyone would think i'm the sort of person that would do that. In my view theft by finding is theft, pure and simple, I wouldn't do it myself, and I would'nt assist anyone that did. I appreciate it will be very difficult to convince someone who has never met me of my honesty, but if anyone is worried enough to be interested in the full convoluted story i'll be happy to try to reassure them. I'll also provide my personal details to a moderator, to be passed on to the police should you think it warranted.
Don't want to sound defensive, and i'm certainly not going to take offence but once the suggestion is 'out there' it needs to be acknowledged. There are one or two people on here who's posts I ignore because they have shown themselves to be untrustworthy in their dealings with others and I'd hate anyone to feel that way about me.
