A TOURIST who had her phone stolen during a late-night drunken swim has had the last laugh, posting pictures the thief took on her device to tumblr.
In the Life of a Stranger Who Stole My Phone, the unnamed blogger reveals how she parted ways with her smartphone after she and her friends went for a late-night swim after a night out in Ibiza, Spain last month.
Unfortunately when the group came back all their stuff was gone with no sign of the thieves in sight.
But the thief failed to disable file-sharing app Dropbox and so she now receives a copy of every photograph taken on her iPhone.
Now, in the ultimate payback, she’s chronicling the life of “Hafid” who she has worked out lives in Dubai after pictures emerged of him in front of the city’s skyline.
In her blog she says: “This is the inspiring story of Hafid from Dubai, the douchebag who stole my phone. He forgot to switch off the camera upload function, that’s why we will enjoy a deep insight into his life.”
The photographs show Hafid in a series of situations, from posing with a fancy car and food, to hanging by the beach with his mates, with the blogger adding hilarious captions.
The blog, which began last month, has attracted thousands of followers and Hafid still appears to have no idea of his new-found internet status.
