    BB held for ransom.. read

    Advertisement



    so a couple of nights ago me and some friends were at a bar. pretty high class bar. anyway. on of my friends left his blackberry on the counter at the coat check. walks outside and is talking to everyone as we are all planning to go our seperate ways when he realizes he doesnt have his bb. storms inside. and of course its gone. he pacing looking around frantically. i called the phone and it was turned off. which is a good sign because he has a password and now thats activated. but anyway. he kept calling and calling the blackberry till around 4 in the morning someone answers it. in a very harsh "do you know who my uncle is type voice'' lol, saying that if he wants his blackberry back to meet him at such and such a place and come lone with 500 bucks. or he will never see it again. now knowing he cant get into the phone. and cant take any info from it. and it doesnt have a sim (8830) he isnt to crazy upset. so we set up this meet agree to the 500 bucks. now my cousin who is a DT who was also out with us gladely agreed to to step in on this and we all went to the place the guy said. and sure enough an actuall buisness looking guy in a nice suit tie and trench coat is standing exactly where he said he was going to be. which blew my mind. as my cousin approched him he said show me the money. he said show me the phone. in which my cousin proceeded to pull out a badge and the guy threw the blackberry to the ground and ran full speed away. no chase followed. everyone is safe and the 8830 is just very cosmeticlly damaged but working well.


    the moral is. people know the value of the information on you bb is to you. be carefull where you put it and always use a password. and everyone be safe. people have no respect for peoples belongings
