Cop@vsnl.net was an id of Chennai police which ceases to exist, it was first published in The Hindu website post then some users randomly started posting articles about the above that the Chennai Police id DOES help when phone is lost. Now it is flooded with many such posts that suggest that you can find your lost mobile phone if you send mail along with some details to this id.
Existence or nonexistence of this email id can be verified at http://verify-email.org/
These articles come with a message and claims that people who have lost their mobile phones can email their complaint, along with the IMEI number and other essential details of the mobile phone so as to trace and track it back from anywhere in the world. The story is a mix of facts & misleading info. The email id firstname.lastname@example.org provided in was that of the Commissioner of Police, Chennai, and yes, it was a fact that if you send an email from anywhere in India, it will reach the Commissioner of Police, Chennai City Police, Chennai. there have also been instances in the past where the Chennai Police have solved mobile theft cases using the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) numbers.
However there is no guarantee that mobile thefts from all over the country will be handled by them. This service is most definitely applicable only for particular state of Tamil Nadu, and not anything beyond their jurisdiction.
Therefore, this message is misleading when it claims that everyone can trace and track back their lost mobile phones using this service. It is also important to note that the official website of Tamil Nadu is not active, since it was hacked earlier this year, and the email service also NOT working.
