    We are missing our master set of View Camera magazines from our office. I would appreciate hearing if anyone is selling a set of magazines or groups of back issues.

    Please

    You might want to check E bay, it seems to be the place to sell back issues of your magazine. How did they get stolen?

    Anyhow, I wish youluck and hope you find them.

    That sucks. How does something like that get taken and why?

    We had them in two sets right near the fax machine. We noticed they were gone this morning. The last time we looked at them was sometime last week. It would seem that someone knew we had the sets and where they were.

    Do you have a cleanning crew at night? Could they have been moved for cleaning and misplaced somewhere? Hope not, but could they have been thrown out by someone thinking they were "old" issues? I know thieves are not an example of the brightest minds in the world, but somehow it seems to me stealing a set of magazines is too much risk for little reward.

    No, we do not have a cleaning crew and there is no place in the office to misplace the two boxes.

    Well, I have a lot of original back issues from Vol 1 No 1, so I guess I'd better not try to sell them anytime soon.....

    I will keep my on eBay as I'm on there every day.

    Sounds like an inside job. Did you have anyone quit lately? Were there signs of a break in? If not, someone had a key. Maybe a friend of an employee who heard they were there?

    Good luck.
