A New York musician posed as a saucy femme fatale in order to come face-to-face with the man who took his iPhone.
Nadal Nirenberg left his iPhone 4 in a cab on New Year’s Eve. The next morning, around 6 a.m., he noticed someone was using his online dating profile, which was linked to his phone, to troll for dates.
The Brooklynite decided to lure the person with his phone into a honey trap. He set up a phony female profile on OK Cupid, complete with a cleavage-bearing photo plucked from the Internet, and began communicating.
“My best version of talking as a girl as a flirty girl, I should say, is adding winky face emoticons,” Nirenberg said.
The mark took the bait, writing: “U wanna meet?”
When Nirenberg said he did, the target, thinking he was communicating with a buxom beauty, asked, “Will you kiss me?”
Nirenberg coyly responded, “Well … I don’t have a boyfriend.”
