<p>Postbak, Australia’s new innovative lost and found service, has recovered 100% of its clients’ lost mobiles at this year’s Australian Fashion Week</p>
<p>(Sydney, Australia – May 11, 2004) – Postbak, Australia’s innovative national lost and found service announced today that it has successfully recovered 100% of its clients’ lost mobile phones at Australian Fashion Week held in Sydney last week.</p>
<p>Over the seven-day event, a number of Postbak clients attending and involved in Australian Fashion Week had reported losing their mobile phones at various venues including the Cargo Hall, located on the ground floor of the Overseas Passenger Terminal.</p>
<p>“From the time our clients reported losing their phones to the time of recovery it took only 24 hours,” said Russ Supplee, Postbak director. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the result, as this re-enforces the fact that the Postbak system works,” added Supplee.</p>
<p>The finders of lost items are motivated to return the lost mobiles because Postbak's system is simple, convenient, confidential, cost-free and offers them a reward. All they have to do is provide Postbak the label number and Postbak arranges for a Messenger Post courier pickup. Finders don't have to try and find the owner, pack a box, or pay for shipping. Once the lost item is returned to the owner, they receive Postbak's standard reward, $39 worth of Postbak labels, plus any cash reward that the owner of the possession has offered.</p>
<p>“It’s a great idea, said Steve Kassem, 24 of Sydney who found one of the lost mobile phones. “When I found the phone, I rang Postbak straight away because of its attractive label, otherwise I would have just handed it into the police station, and knowing that the owner would probably never see it again.” “The system is fast and efficient. I will definitely be using the Postbak labels,” adds Smith.</p>
<p>Each Postbak security label has a unique ID number linking the portable item to the owner. Owners register with Postbak online or via a toll-free number. Registration is free; there are no additional fees unless a registered item is lost. If Postbak recovers an item, the owner is responsible only for shipping and handling.</p>
<p>Russell Supplee, Postbak director, is available for media interviews.</p>
