Positivity: NYC IPhone Owner Tricks Thief Using Dating App

Filed under: Positivity — Tom @ 6:00 am

From New York City:

A New York City musician used a combination of technology, seduction, a hammer and a bribe to reclaim his missing iPhone from a confused crook.

Jazz trombonist Nadav Nirenberg says he left the phone in a livery cab on New Year’s Eve. The next morning, the 27-year-old learned via email that someone was sending messages to women using a dating app on the phone.

Nirenberg logged on to the service and offered the man a date – posing as a woman. He even posted a picture of a pretty girl.

When the culprit arrived at Nirenberg’s Brooklyn apartment building with wine, the musician greeted him with a $20 bill while holding a hammer – just in case.

The thief handed him the iPhone and left without a word.
