Leaked trackable codes

Recommended Posts

Whenever I get a log on a track able in my possession I take the minute to delete it.   You can’t discover a coin in a binder in my basementimage.png.562c2b4b9b957a74b441234fd4406da8.png

I'm wondering how they get such things (this one is not mine, just one I happen to be watching)? Brute forcing?

Judging by this log, we've got another online database of trackable codes:
https://www.geocaching.com/track/log.aspx?LogReferenceCode=TL1BA9442

"Discovered while online searching."

That log has been deleted. I Really Dislike when codes are shared without the owner's permission. Sometimes people share other people's lists. Sometimes people use computer programs to find the codes. Very sad that people do that to add to their discovery total. I have seen a few Coins/codes shared online by their owners. I won't even log those as a discovery---only as a note and only  if it's a very awesome trackable. I delete bogus logs on my trackables, too.

When the other 2/3rds got "discovers" on her coins that were sitting in the closet for a few years now, it was a large group on faceboook.

Don't remember if it was a numbers generator, or someone hacking something.

I ask out loud now  "Are all those codes yours ?" at events, and nine times outta ten none of them are.  But they got the message.  :)

That's where it starts.  Simple, "harmless" sharing, and folks not understanding it's wrong...

My "conspiracy brain" wonders if somewhere out there, there is a black market for TB's where all the missing TB's not found in caches actually end up.

 

Picturing some boss of the Russian Mafia giving some person a tour of the secret trophy room in his mansion:

 

"... And here's the original master tape of Metallica's 'Kill Em All' album... Here are the Van Gogh and Dali paintings I had secretly replaced from the walls of the Louvre... and here is my collection of Geocaching trackables. That Climbed Mount Everest geocoin? I had to pry it from the cold dead fingers of Sir Edmund Hillary's grandson. Now it is in the hands of... me. MWAH HAH HAH ! "

 

:D
