iPhone thief sends back handwritten list of nearly 1,000 contacts to victim

What do you miss the most when your phone gets stolen? Most likely your list of contacts.

According to AFP, the owner of the smartphone, Zou Bin, had no backup of the data on the device.

More worried about the loss of these numbers than the handset itself, he sent a text message to the pickpocket.

Convinced that the thief had stolen his phone while they shared a taxi, Mr. Zou threatened him.

“I know you are the man who sat beside me. I can assure you that I will find you,” Zou wrote.

“Look through the contact numbers in my mobile and you will know what trade I am in. … Send me back the phone to the address below if you are sensible.”

Surprisingly, the thief bothered to send him his SIM card and the phone numbers, handwritten on a total of eleven pages.

“It would take a while to write from one to one thousand, let alone names and a whole string of digits. I suppose (the thief’s) hand is swelling,” Zou said, as cited by the AFP.
