Hello sir. I am representive broker of LakawakaKuki Airlines. We have acquired 1,000 FMS computers that were delivered to us by unknown parts brokers. Unfortunately, we cannot distribute these Flight management computers to several low-cost carriers because they have serial numbers. The value of the 1,000 FMS computers is estimated to be $5.5 million dollars US. We wish to enlist your aid to assist us in creating new serial i.d. plates for these computers. We will reward you $1.5 million US for your help in arranging for this. Please send us your banking information as soon as possible, so that we can deposit the funds to your account. Most Respectly, Kruked Gouy

I am a frequent flyer, NOT a pilot and certainly NOT an aerospace engineer.
So my question is: What exactly can thieves do with this system?
They can't install it in another plane, can they?
