Phone Ransom

march 29, 2005

Some people are paying ransom to get their mobile phones back. "Victims of cell phone theft are agreeing to pay a "ransom" to the thieves for the convenience of getting their phones back, and police are urging them to notify authorities so they can help nab the criminals in a sting." I don't know, if someone stole my phone and demanded a ransom, I'd tell them to go to hell and then shut off the line. Yea, $30 to get my Sidekick II back would be nice, but it's all about principle. To hell with those people who think that they can do this.
