An iPhone thief tricked by a clever trombonist probably regrets using a stolen cellphone to look for love. Nadav Nirenberg is a 27-year-old musician from Park Slope, Brooklyn. When his phone was stolen recently, he never could have imagined that an online dating website would help him get it back. When Nirenberg discovered that his stolen iPhone was being used to browse the site OKCupid, he sprang into action. Nirenberg used a photo of an attractive woman he found online as the basis of a fake online dating profile, according to a Jan. 4, 2013 report by New York Post.
Nirenberg originally lost his phone in a cab on New Year's Eve. The person who found it could have done the right thing by reuniting it with its owner. Instead, he began using it as if it were his own. The brazen iPhone thief tricked by the trombone player was even using Nirenberg Nirenberg's photo on the online dating site. That's where "Jennifer from BK" came into play.
The victim created a fake profile for "Jennifer Gonzalez" and somehow managed to lure the iPhone thief with her profile. The thief even agreed to meet "Jennifer" at her home for a date. When the hapless thief arrived, he was surprised to discover not a girl looking for romance but a disgruntled iPhone owner looking for his phone. Get this. Nirenberg even gave the short, cologne-drenched thief a $20 bill and a compliment. "You do smell great though," said Nirenberg as the iPhone thief he tricked scurried away. Nirenberg won't press charges now that his phone has been returned.
