    Link: Guy Uses Dating Site To Get His Stolen iPhone Back - Is that my iPhone in your pocket? This was actually a pretty clever way to get back at the loser who ripped him off.

    He probably gave him the $20 to keep his thieving mouth shut.

    He left his phone in a cab. Calling the person who stumbles across it a thief seems a bit harsh.

    Reminds me of the 5 people at our party who came complaining that someone stole their phone, only to realize later that they had just misplaced it because they were drunk.

    Found a neighbors smartphone outside my building one evening last year. I`d never used one before then and was hunting for one of her friends/relatives in it`s contact list to call and give her back her phone. Got ahold of her mom, I believe, and told her that I`d found the phone and it`s location.

    She came by and I gave her the phone. Got a big hug and a thank you. Even her mom thanked me, via a phone call. That was reward enough for me. :-)

    @Brometheus: I don`t think it seems harsh at all when you consider the creep used the guy`s photo to try to get girls on a dating site.

    Why did he pay him though? If it was me, I would have taken the phone AND the wine, just for the inconvenience.

    One of the comments on the site was Finding a phone in the back of a cab is NOT stealing. "Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers"

    There is no Finders Keepers Losers Weepers in real life, kids.

    Someone stole your iPhone? They did you a favor. Go get an android and then call your old phone to thank them.

    "Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers" Nope, for those in the UK look up `theft by finding` - a nice policeman told me all about it when I found a burnt out moped on the way back from the pub. Who`d of thought.

    @Crakr: I was tempted to put your avatar on the "good guy greg" meme and make it good guy crakr, but I`m too lazy. I`ll just say you`re a decent human being and leave it at that.

    I do have to wonder though if criminals have become more stupid, or if they`ve always been this stupid and new technology just lets us know how stupid they really are.
