How does it work?

Register with TeddiTag.com and get your own "tag" which you write on your belongings along with a message "If found, please report on www.tedditag.com XXXXXX". When somebody finds your lost property, they visit the website and report their find. You then communicate with the finder, via this site, to arrange collection or return.

What is a tag?

A tag consists of six letters and numbers which is unique to you. Write this on your proprty so that anybody who finds it can return it to you via TeddiTag.com

Is there any fee?

Must I offer a reward or does the finder require a fee?
