Dumbest thief ever!
Here’s your dose of weird news for the day: imagine losing your camera-phone. As you mournfully gaze at the dust-lined square on the table, a lasting reminder of your gadget, beep goes your mail. And what do you know. Snugly attached to your email is a very unflattering photo of the thief!
Well let’s start from the beginning. The victim of this techno-theft, (mikesub @ Flickr) was a rather enthusiastic member of Flickr and the like. And so, if anyone else uses his phone try to upload a picture on any of those sites using that same phone and fail, the actual owner will get a nifty copy of the picture. Which is just what happened!
So far, mikesub doesn’t know if it’s of the thief, his neighbor, disowned relative or partner. But it’s a start.
Talk about getting caught with your pants down.
Why, why, why would you allow someone to take such a horrid pic of yourself?
And it’s not what you imagine the den of thief to look like, was it? So much for the media image of broken down buildings furnished by drugs stashes with a stack of pirated DVDs substituting for a coffee table. As for him, he doesn’t even have an evil squint; this looks like your average Joe in the Post Office!
