Default Life of a stranger who stole my phone

Care of Catbird and Geordieboy.

Basically this German bird/blokes phone got nicked in Ibiza around March this year but the apps etc. were not removed. Now someone else has the stolen phone (may or may not be the thief) and because of some app or other every photo he takes is downloaded to the real owners PC.

So real owner created a blog to show the world Hafid from Sharjah.

Now Hafid could have bought it semi legitimately in Bur Dubai/Karama for example, but even if he did, he's used the original owners passwords etc. to log on to their Facebook and Skype account and harass his/her friends.

In the words of the writer, what a douchebag - and as the original owner is in Germany, he can't be done for defamation either.

So, should he be found or not? Do you recognise him?

I am a 99.9% sure that the picture of him in front of that white car is the building next to Mai Tower in Nahda, down the road from LuLu hypermart
The Emirates hostel is on the right of this building

Hopefully the blog will generate traffic and income which will compensate the owner of the phone.

Frustrated virgins who are raised believing women who are unveiled are whores.
