Man steals 7 phones from 7 girlfriends

A MAN who stole iPhones from seven “girlfriends” he met via WeChat has been charged with fraud, the Jiading District Prosecutors’ Office said yesterday.

In one case, the 26-year-old, surnamed Feng, began a romantic relationship with 20-year-old Cai after meeting her through the social networking app in September 2012. Soon after, Feng asked Cai if he could borrow her iPhone4S. When she agreed he disappeared with it.

Feng later dated another woman, surnamed Guo, and used a similar trick to separate her from her iPhone4.

When Feng was apprehended by police he confessed to stealing seven iPhones from seven women. The phones had a combined value of more than 10,000 yuan (US$1,610).
