The new type of kidnappings
« on: April 07, 2005, 07:07:44 PM »
So I was just trying to get peoples attention with the topic but do you know that there r people that go around either finding, buying, or stealing cell phones only to return the phones to the owners for a price.

I recently lost my phone. After calling it many times so that a good samaritan would return my phone I came to the realization that it was in fact stolen. A week after I received a ransom call: " I have your phone but I paid $200.00 from some one for it. I want to return it but only if u give me back the $ 200.00."

 WTF >:(  The phone was disconnected 2 days after the theft and this fool went and pay $200.00 for a phone with contact numbers and other info on it. First of all I do not think he bought the phone in the first place he could have been the one who stole it. Fortunately for me the battery was giving trouble and it is not even a recent model so who is the fool. I will b keeping my $200.00 and he could keep the old disconnected phone.   :D

I am not the first person that this has happened to a friend was told after she got on to someone who picked up her lost phone that if she wanted it back she neede to meet him at _______ and walk with money. Now tell me doesn't that sound like a ransom demand.
