Agree to the exchange. Stake out the location of the drop off. Try your best to record the offense taking place (heh you might need to borrow someone else's smartphone to record).Approach the imbecile (come on he is - all this so he can get $100) then you have one of two options: 1.Ask them if they know what the 11 secret herbs and spices are or, 2. There is no two
I'm with 11, but if your terrorist has any smarts at all (which they probably don't, but don't assume), they won't be in person for an exchange; they'll make you leave the money at a specified location and then return your phone later. So what I would do, is either 1) hide and wait for the person to collect the money then confront them, or b) give them a counterfeit. Of course, you can always call the police and ask them to triangulate your phone's location, and then arrest your coworker.
On a side note, this dick doesn't sound like pro they sound more like a Child. Firstly, he said " bucks"... Are you kidding?! Who says bucks on a ransom note? Secondly, he only asked for $100. Most people have smartphones these days and they don't come cheap - in saying that most insurance excess payments to get a replacement phone is around $250. Does he not know he could possibly sell your phone for at least $300? Or if your phone is a piece of shit why steal it in the first place? Thirdly if they had ANY smarts about them (which they don't but..) they would use subsequent evidence from your phone to blackmail you further and demand a larger ransom. In saying this I believe you have grounds to write back the following message to this kid, "I am going to tell your mum if you don't give it back". Thus frightening him and badabing! You have your phone back.
agree to drop the money off in front of a camera but don't make it obvious! if you have an Android go on a computer to the play store and download something called Android Lost! it installs remotely without having the phone near you and it can help you locate it! :) advanced settings let you snap a picture of the person holding it!
HoSo its not stolen, maybe your co-worker's might be playing games with you. Just wait and you will have your phone back.
I've canceled contracts with AT&T and they didn't charge me a penny. I've also lost phones and had to replace them and they didn't charge me. I know most companies do however but not all. And getting a replacement phone is usually really cheap ($5-$10). It's usually a really crappy phone but you can get another phone.
It could've been any of your coworkers, since it was at your job locker. FYL though, OP. That really kills!
Just show that note to your boss, coz its 'ain't fun damn it could have someone's private information in it as for pictures videos texts etc...
Well you can get a new phone for less than 100$ and just transpher your information from your original. Seems better than giving in to whoever took your phone. Hopefully your phone has a code to get in too!
well she doesnt need a BRAND NEW one. Just get it used it doesnt matter. I've bought them for 25$ lowest on ebay, or similar sites before and it was still in very good condition. Also once i called the phone company they just transphered my information such as contacts, etc. to the new one.
Actually #13, if you get a cheap enough phone, such as a little go-phone you can get them for under 100$. I got one for 20$ once. If you are starting a new contract you can still get one for under 100$. So I don't know what world YOU live in where you can't do that, but you can. Moron
iPhone's can store info on your computer at home. I dropped my iPhone in the pool one time and had to replace it. Went to the apple store, that doesn't sell apples, they couldn't use my broken iPhone to transfer info so I had to go home and do it myself from when I synced my phone. Most companies has cheap replacement phones. Most don't even charge you they just give you the phone. Last time I got a razor.
