    Buy the thief a Sky3DS and let him play using public headers! :P
    Back on topic, you should call Nintendo and tell them it was stolen.

    Then call them. They can reply for an email later, but they can't do such a thing with a phone call.

    actually, everything is done through phone, being to combining, unlinking, or transferring NNIDs. i'm pretty sure they can blacklist a serial number as well, provided that you have the box of your device still.

    i can see that you're in the philippines, i suggest making a google account and call them via google talk. that way you won't need to pay for phone fees. i'm assuming the 3ds you have is U version though right?

    Make a police report, send it to Nintendo and in that mail ask them to deactivate your stolen 3ds.

    Yes I thought the same when my 3DS got stolen before and I wanted to transfer my games to the new one (this was before NNID), but it was actually very easy.

    EDIT: Plus that if you want to get money back then you need to make a police report and report your stolen 3DS to an insurane company.
