I fucked up pretty badly.
So, about a week ago I found phone pictured in a pile of snow. Luckiest day of my life. I immediately took out the SIM and factory reset it.
Here's where I fucked myself. I made a samsung account on it and I connected it to my home Wifi and tethered to my own phone wifi.
I posted on Snap saying "I found a phone", and one person told somebody I found a phone, and that lead to the owner finding out I have it.
If I had the phone on me, I would've given it then and there. But I stupidly said I didn't have it. And it doesn't matter if I give it back now, cause I'd be getting stabbed either way. I "proved" I didn't post anything about finding a phone and drew it as far away from me as I could. But again, connected it to my home wifi and my an account on it.
They're gonna try to track it now. I just realized tonight how fucking stupid I am so I reset it again and for now it's sitting in airplane mode. I need to know every way I could draw it even farther from me. How to get rid of the Samsung account, and what I can do about the Wifi thing.
I was thinking about going out and connecting to as many Wifi spots as I can to try to hide my home wifi, but I'm doubting how well that will work.
I really need help with this, if I don't find a way I'm absolutely fucked.
Stop stealing, Tyrone.
You should have easily found out how to contact someone who could relay it to him/her. Or hell, you could have posted on his/her facebook or other social media. But no, you decided to fucking factory reset it (losing all pics, vids, etc.) like a dick then try to sell it. That's theft. Go fuck yourself.
You could say you lied because you thought the actual owner was lying when he claimed it was his and you didn't want some random dude to end up with it and ask for proof-- then, when he gives proof, give it back.
jamal steals phone
jamal brags about it on the internet
different jamal finds him
jamal needs to know how to cover up his tracks
all whilst simultaneously NOT throwing out or giving back the stolen phone
GIVE IT BACK JAMAL
Jesus Christ, Tarquan. Did you really think any of this was a good idea? To just sell somebody's phone?
Just mail it to him with no return address. Your wifi means literally nothing, some nigger is not going to go to police to get a warrant to go to your isp and get your info from your ip.
>hey niguh its ma phone
>yeah man tell me how your phone is
>oh it's a samsung edge xyz nigguh
>sorry, the one I found is an apple whatever
Why do you have to be such an attwhore faggot that post that kind of shit online? You deserve to get fucked.
>Throw it in a cabinet.
>Find a charger for it and charge it up.
>see texts asking for phone back.
>Text them back.
>Phone is disabled.
>Send anonymized texts and calls.
what do I do now. I haven't touched it since. Still has the sim and everything.
Fuck I hope they track you down and stab you. If I were the owner I would try to track your stealing ass down.
>pull sim and wipe phone
>announce to public you found phone
>original owner hears about your announcement
>lie and say you didn't find phone
>wait for owner to figure out your a lying piece of shit
>wait for him to hunt your ass down
>get beat up/stabbed/raped
Do you understand how dumb you are? Like at no point did you stop for a second or two and think ' what the fuck am I doing?' You can't just give the phone back now because it's so painfully obvious you tried to steal it.
Tell me what to do guys.
I've tried getting the phone back to the owners. Didn't work out.
Now what. Do I use it myself? Any chance of it coming back to bite me in the ass?
Honestly I've just thought about trashing it.
Also I am totally not OP. Not at all. Seriously.
>announce you found phone
>guy looking to get a new phone hears about it
>"yo bro you got my phone"
>"dis lil bitch boy gonna give up this phone and I ain't got to do shit"
it's pretty simple OP should just reset it, pop back in the sim and hope the original owner contacts him and just blame the wipe on the snow
make your wifi open to be able to say you weren't the one to create a samsung account over it.
get rid of the phone. if you don't destroy it clean the fingerprints off of it.
ideally get rid of the phone somewhere where the ower will find it so they are less inclined to press charges/look after you/beat the shit out of you
that's what I'd do. Also, stop stealing.
>I legitimately found it outside, not stole it.
Honest question. Are you black? Why do you think that taking something that isn't yours just becauuse it is unaccompanied is not stealing? I was wondering if this was a culture thing.
So if a mother left her baby for a few seconds to fetch an item from the shopping isle I can claim that physical material and sell it to pedo sex rigns because " ownership is not intrinsic to """physical materials""" in any way."
Back in highschool my iPod touch 4 had broken. One day at the end of the school day I was at my locker getting my shit when a class had just been dismissed, as students walked past behind me I felt something thump between my legs
> mfw same exact iPod touch as mine and same amount of memory
> my other one was later replaced for frizzle by apple.
Never found out who the person that lost it was; people saw me pick it up but no one ever said anything.
I also found $20 on the curb at millennium park once too.
This entire thread. Smh, senpai. OP, you're a huge nigger. This thread is the sort of thing that got you in trouble in the first place. Well, other than your general problem of being a nigger. Fuck, it's worse though, because at least most niggers have the good sense to hide their behavior from civilized people. You're even bad at being a nigger. You're like an ultra nigger or something.
See, actually, normal (read: white) people try to return the property of others when we happen to find it. It helps that most of us are actually employed. Protip: Welfare is not employment.
Niggers unironically do that. Have you ever lived in Chicago?
>Hey I found this bike chained to a fence.
The ultimate litmus test is this: if OP truly didn't think he was stealing, why did he immediately remove the SIM and wipe the phone?
I could find a rock on the side of the road and I wouldn't quickly grab it and hide it then brush it clean of anyone else's fingerprints.
The intrinsic ownership is SOMEONE'S FUCKING SIM CARD YOU FUCKING MORON.
why didnt you just call someone on the phones contact list to get it back to the owner? you total fucking shitbag, i hope your house gets broken into by negros and you get raped and all your shit gets jacked
How did you even manage to get onto this website? This is a troll isnt it?
OP deserves a beating for the moron he is
>hurr durr found a phone that i can reset and use fuck the previous owner finders keepers amiright?? :^))))))
>ohsht owners found out i have their phone after my dumb ass posted about finding a phone and saying im going to keep it
me find cel fone
me keep cel fone
hahahah is this real? do you think fbi will come for you? seriously stop being so panicked...
I've found an iphone 4 back in the days and sold it to a random guy for a new galaxy nexus... no problems whatsoever
For starters, I wouldn't post anything saying that I "found" a phone.
This is the only issue I can think of, if OP factory resetted it through the settings menu and reactivation lock and other security features are not enabled, the phone would be untraceable, apart from its IMEI.
Install CyanogenMod or a different stock android ROM on it, that'll get rid of those weird Samsung accounts.
Speaking of that, maybe completely wipe and format the SD.
After that, hide it and don't use it for a couple days/weeks. This isn't so that they can't track you but so that they don't find the phone on you.
Also, you're a fucking dumbass.
>announcing personal information on social media
>getting burned as a result
These things always bite you in the ass, you should have just quietly pocketed the phone and gone on with your life.
You found a phone and immediately decided that its yours now. I hope they find out, and I hope you get your ass beat. You retardedly posted it online, and the owner found it without you intending for that to happen. Thats how fucking easy it would have been to return it. Sorry buddy you deserve it.
First I'd like to say I'm white.
Second, I didn't go on Facebook like some porch monkey and scream "OOGA I FIND PHONE HERE'S SPECIFIC SERIAL NUMBER BOOGA", I posted on my snap with seven friends saying "Found a phone, neat."
Should I track the IMEI here http://www.trackimei.com/ to see if they would know my location?
