When Reddit user thelowflyingowl found out that his sisters iPhone and wallet had been stolen, he decided to have a little fun trying to get it back. After all, his sister did work hard all summer long to buy her very own iPhone and that’s just what big brothers do!
So here is what happened.
My little sister sister who is going to be a senior worked hard all summer to buy an iPhone, only to have it stolen (or fall out, she is still not entirely sure) out of her boyfriend’s car a week ago. She had not activated the find my iphone app so we reported it stolen but we’re pretty sure someone was just being gifted a free iPhone courtesy of my sister’s summer wages.
So yesterday I get this text from a strange number. I give my sister a quick call to make sure it is not her and effectively realize someone is fishing through her contacts or documents to get her password.
The text conversation that follows is not only brilliant…but it yielded some serious results!
Big Brother is in Green. iPhone thief is in gray.
I was bored so I say to myself, why not have some fun. We will never get the phone back, but what the heck, might as well kill some time.
I am certain that his or her insistence will at the very least make this an lengthy exchange.
I’m convinced this person is humoring me and just stringing me along until I cave.
No one can be buying this!
Again, I am thinking, he is humoring me but I was like, let’s see how long this lasts until he stops texting me back.
The brother didn’t mean to say ‘Avery’. However he just went with it!
…and then his sister received the following email the next day!
Voila! Phone and all contents have been returned!
