    i think you started the greed by offering him $300? your now saying he can do this twice a weeek and earn 600Z! your also telling him that its that valuable so maybe his friend said ask a little more..(i can so see it play out hes offering 300 aha maybe ask for more>>>)

    The only thing should not offer 300 – triggered the appetite. Normal citizens should give back for free. Want to reward – only after you got it back

    Question

    Question

    What if the perp has ur info now and gets his friends to revenge? This needs to be addressed with the police too.

    You offered $300 for his trouble? Don’t get it.

    I dont think the offer of $300 gave him the idea to ask for $1,000. In my opinion, the extortion of $1,000 or more was the original plan. it seems like a planned attempt to me.

    $1000 for a phone?

    $1000 for a phone?

    Why does he think anyone will pay $1000 for a used phone? YOu can get a brand new phone for much less and with smart phones as long as you’re synced you’re not loosing any info?

    One more point: Never leave your phone (or wallet or keys etc.) unattended even for a moment – not in a bank, not at a chasuna, not in 770.

    Maybe the reason that he didn’t extort her from the get go was so that he can spy on her at the first arranged meeting to see her face. Then when he does extort her, he knows if its really her that is coming to pick up the phone or if it is an undercover cop.

    It is important to show gratitude to the police. it is important to ensure that their interests are in line with our interests however the gushing over the fact that they really just did their job is a bit over the top in my opinion had they not listen to your story, had they not act professionally, had they botched the case and let a criminal escape, i would be upset that New York’s finest are a bunch of useless cops I’m happy for you that you got your property back and that things worked out in the best possible… Read more »

    the extortionist would have all your personal info from your phone, including your phone number. I would suggest changing at least your phone number

    Stolen car

    My BIL had his car stolen. When they found it, both carseats were gone, as was an irreplaceable music collection. But the police made it clear that the case was closed and no further inquiries would be made. No arrest, no investigation. Oh, and he had to pay over $500 to pick up the car from the pound. Protect and serve. Preach it, brother!

    YOU DEFINITELY NEED TO THANK THE COPS-THEY DID AN AMAZING JOB, BUT IN MOST EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, WHEN A PHONE IS STOLEN, THE CARRIER DISABLES THE PHONE SO IT CAN’T EVER BE USED AGAIN. WE BEGAN HAVING THEFT PROBLEMS WHEN THE LAWS BEGAN TO TAKE EFFECT OVER THERE.
    HERE, THE CARRIERS LOBBY CONGRESS AGAINST PASSING SUCH LAWS, MAKING US SITTING DUCKS.

    Never ever offer money in advance for someone who took your phone
    He should have given it back without a reward

    this guy stole the phone

    this guy stole the phone

    why did you not realize that your phone was stolen?
    why offer a thief a reward????????
    “Jews have money”

    If the guy was stupid enough not to know he’d be ambushed by the cops, I doubt he would have thought of that. Besides, it could have been an undercover cop both times.

    Nice cops but...

    This is their job, what they’re paid to do.
    Reward after phone received without letting them know beforehand.

    Once when the officers do their job well it makes it to the news.

    When studying in CH there was a criminal going around and slashing tires.

    I asked officers, instead of putting up trucks and lights and going around patrolling, why don’t you just sit in a car dressed like a civilian and just catch the perp.

    Their answer was: “We don’t have the training for that.”

    Therefore taxpayers had to pay the overtime and security show and the guy was not caught.

    Things will change when cops can get fired.
