Who reports a IMEI stolen? Police? Instead they would have enabled the concerned authorities to track the device efficiently and return to its owner.

I remember there is already some system in place which validates a phone and its IMEI, I mean one can find the device model given a valid IMEI. And there are these experts who change IMEI and sell the device in grey market.
