'You can keep the iPhone… so long as I get a date!' Victim forgives thief Who Stole His Phone When He Sees Her Photos
A besotted victim who tracked his phone thief using an app has forgiven her – because she is incredibly good looking. Matsumoto Hiroki lost his iPhone on holiday in Bangkok. Forced to return to Japan, he invested in a new 5C, and took to iCloud to trace his account. His photostream is now cluttered with selfies of a young, cute Thai girl dating back to December 29, when the phone went missing.
Single Mr Hiroki, sharing the development on Twitter on January 10, wrote: ‘Her pictures are really cute, so I’m not sure how to handle this.’
He added: ‘She’s so cute, I want to tell her “You can keep the iPhone as long as we can be friends!”‘
Followers replied encouraging him to send her a message.
However, yesterday, after Mr Hiroki finally closed his iPhone account, he tweeted a screenshot of a text from the girl: ‘Nice to meet you!’
