China: Man stole iPhone, but conscience got the better of him

China iPhones

Not every victim of theft is as lucky as Chinese man Zou Bin. A thief who stole his iPhone apparently felt guilty because he later sent its rightful owner a manually transcribed list of a thousand contacts. It took up eleven pages.

According to local media reports, the thief stole the iPhone belonging to Zou Bin while the men were travelling together a taxi in the Chinese province of Hunan.

Zou was annoyed primarily due to the loss of thousands of contacts who were saved on his phone. He says he was more worried about that than the loss of the apparatus itself.

As reported by AFP, Bou decided not to wait with folded arms and sent a text message to the thief. “I know that you are the man who sat next to me. I assure you that I will find you. Review the contacts in my phone, and you’ll see who I’m dealing with. If you’re smart, send me the phone to this address” he wrote.

He did not have to wait long for the answer from the thief. After a few days, Zou Bin received a parcel containing a SIM card and a manually transcribed list of contacts. It was eleven pages long.
