Im just wondering if she might of sold it rather then actually losing it. Initially i did think she just lost it, but of course in the back of my mind theres the thought of "what if she sold it" Our employee is from india (more nepali then indian but i guess it doesn't really matter) she worked at our company years ago when we were doing well and she was handling around $20,000 per month at the india office. She eventually left, and now since we offered her an opportunity to work in the US (NYC) she rejoined our company. On a visa she worked over here for a couple months and went back to india and applied for a work visa. The company is based in LA with staff in NYC, so i come to NYC with my old macbook (the iPad3 she had since she first came). Its an older macbook 2010 13" so it doesn't have THAT much value but its still $700 dollars, which is probably less then what she gets paid in India. But in the US we pay here US wages (either minimum or little bit over) After i bought a solid state drive and replaced the CD drive with it to make it faster and usable for another 3-4 years. i set up the OS X on there, installed parallel, set up Xcode (not a developer but she just needs to be able to install apps on devices in case of emergency), Skype, app cleaner, windows 8.1, outlook. Everything and she loses both the next day. Fishy thing is, she lost the iPad but i know she kept it in her purse all the time. so it was a bit fishy to lose both, because i knew she was carrying macbook separately at times. (she was carrying everything in her purse 2 Labtops she also was carrying her personal she was using for work lenovo laptop, i was going to tell her to just use a backpack because its just not reasonable but i didnt want to impose) she lost it on a NJ transit bus. but its kind of hard to forget about a damn macbook in a case i mean where would she put it? either on the ground or i guess the top. anyways, she was crying when she came in the day she told us, so i told her not to worry about it. but another thing is we're waiting for her work visa to get approved she was supposed to know the weekend before. but she said the lawyer will know at the end of the month when the deadline/raffle was the weekend before she lost the macbook. so i mean of course the chance of her visa getting denied and making probably double her salary before she has to go came through my mind. and then yesterday she asked me how much the Solid state drive i put in was. I told her not to worry about it (of course i said it many times before) and then she asked me how much GB of space was in there. which was fishy, but then I'm pretty sure she can find out for her self if she had it. i don't know any suggestions?
