NYC iPhone Owner Tricks Thief using Dating App

PHONES-IPHONE

NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City musician used a combination of technology, seduction, brute force and a bribe to reclaim his missing iPhone from a confused crook.

Jazz trombonist Nadav Nirenberg tells the New York Post that he left his iPhone in a livery cab on New Year’s Eve.

The next morning, the 27-year-old learned via email that someone was sending creepy messages to women using a dating app on the phone.

So he logged on to the service and offered the man a date — posing as a woman. He even sent a picture of a pretty girl.

When the culprit arrived at Nirenberg’s Brooklyn apartment with wine, the musician jumped out brandishing a hammer.

But he also offered $20.

The thief handed him the iPhone and bolted.
