Have any of you guys had this happen to your coins? Sure stinks.

I suppose there is really nothing I can do. Too bad, because I really like releasing coins into the wild. This may tame down or stop that.

I've seen a few logs recently from the Geocoin Pirate but never had it happen to me. But I've only released a few coins.

At least you know someone stole it as opposed to those that take them out of circulation and add them to their personal collections w/o telling anyone.

That really sucks. We should string up all pirates by their tights. Cool

The ninjas will volunteer their services.

That account has only been active for a week. I think it's too early to be sure that he/she is really planning on stealing the coins indefinitely. I wouldn't give up all hope yet.

But I though the lack of pirates is what causes global warming? Laughing

But he only logs the coin and not the cache.

Some people think it might be a practical joke, I'm uncertain considering how new they are. If they persist, I might suggest putting a note on your active coin pages to tell cachers to keep the coin out of missouri.

Hasn't happened to me.. My problem is newbies taking the coins and not logging them properly, or never caching again.

Yep, the pirate has one of my coins. I too am not sure what the real deal is with this.

http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=676312

Have my eye on this one, but no movement yet. Got a note from someone who noticed it, I figured it was a cacher?...

After I heard the "news" I sent an email thanking them for the grab and was looking forward to seeing where it lands. No response???

Oh well... CACHE ON!!!!!!!

You won't see any from the pirate - he's a banned member.

It might be worth your while to do what this guy did: http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=545855

Not sure if it matters, but if he ever shows them to anyone to log, or the like, at least the identity of the theif will be known.

Unlikely, but better than nothing.

Okay, this confirms it! You all have WAY too much time on your hands!
