I'd have dialed the phone when the guy was at the door, before I opened it, so he'd have it out when the door opened. I'd take it, say "thanks for returning the phone" and slam the door.

At least ATTEMPT to contact the owner because if you don't IT IS THEFT. You found their stuff but are concealing the fact that you did. There are SO many dishonest people in the world, and they have the nerve to justify it. Deplorable. “Finders keepers” is for people who want to justify keeping stuff that doesn’t belong to them.

The fact that people steal inferior products prove the lack of intelligence of people that buy iPhones. Then the idiot compounds the fact he spent money on the iCrap in the first place by giving the thief more money for it. Why didnt he bring more people with him, or call the cops or something. Then again he did buy an iphone so i guess hes just used to making bad decisions, along with actually picking Musician as a career. He should have let it stay stolen, its crap.

They don't sell it right after they get it. I believe there is a 30-120 day (depending on state) waiting period.

In that is says something to the effect of due diligence/reasonable effort....such as contacting police OR lost and found department. Like it or not that is the law. Had the man in this article contacted the police and had them meet the thief....he WOULD have been arrested. Now we can sit and twist and turn this around till the cows come home....the law is the law regardless of how much we don't like it or how ridiculous it may seem.. I think many of these laws were put on the books back when people still had a sense of right and wrong, morals and common decency.....something we apparently lack these days since people think it is or should be ok to find property that belongs to someone else and keep it.
