    hey guys so i worked at the south by southwest show this year and i was tearing down my gear and i found a blackberry bold. after asking around it was nobodys that was still at the venue. so the next morning i went to call some numbers on the phone and it was disconnected. so i left it alone and i found it in my workbox today and powered it on and found some stuff with "shwayze" on it and it rung a bell. apparently this person performed on that show and there are some very incriminating pics and videos on there aswell as some other famous peoples numbers.............my question is A: try and track him down. or B: sell it..............on one hand the dudes a douche and is clearly doing illegal stuff and took pictures of it like and idiot so he may deserve it. then on the other i would really kind of feel bad.

    so what say you guys?

    ok, so after some digging i actually got the email adress to either him or his manager or something. and after explaining i had this phone and what exactly was on it i got this message. "3969 xxxxxxxx Malibu ca 90265, send ASAP". kind of a dick thing to do. i kind of wanna just break the thing and send it back at this point not to mention having to pay to send it to him.

    Famous people are role models to our children. I really don't think if someone is doing illegal things they should get the phone back, especially if those illegal things are serious.

    inquiring minds want to know what's on the phone. also, tell them to pay for shipping and handling before you send it.

    ok heres the way I look at it after some thought. If he is doing illegal things that effect others then you should report it to the cops. If he is doing illegal things that effect only him then you should return the phone.
    Do not ask for money from the press because then you are in the wrong. You are basically extorting this person for your own personal gain.
    If you try to sell it back to the person who owns it then that is extortion and illegal.

    If you sell it or reveal anything on it, you're a dick.

    Granted, if there were things on there of people getting hurt and such, that's one thing. Then you go to the POLICE.

    Otherwise, not giving it back makes you the same lowlife piece of **** as the tabloids and any other opportunity-seeking leach that we all look down upon.

    Also, now that they have your email address and you've admitted to having the phone (and what's on it), they could pursue legal avenues should you attempt to sell or distribute the information on it. If you attempt to extort them, expect a visit from the FBI.

    If you really hate the guy and/or he's being a prick about it, destroy the phone and throw it out.

    COD via FedEx (so you have tracking) is probably the best option.

    i would never sell it to the press. i doubt anyone cares about this guy that much. i would never try and ask for anything from him. i would just think that i was kind enough to spend my time tracking him down and to just get a douchebag response is pretty lame. and as far as doing something illegal that only affects him or if it affects others i would say it depends on how you look at it. i would elaborate but i dont think that would be the right thing to do.

    If it has any chance of effecting others, no matter how small, and it is illegal you should turn it in to the cops. That's just my opinion, but no matter how small the chance is you hear stories all the time about how one persons mistake ruins the life of an innocent person.

    shwayze that rapper guy...I'd probably run my truck over it then send it back in pieces to that address, just for making bad music and being a douche alone (not including the illegal stuff done in the pics)...but hey that's me. :up:

    The first part is a good idea... you're kind of covering yourself by copying what's on his phone. I mean, he knows you've looked at it... he knows what is on there could get him into trouble. If this guy is a POS as you say, I think you need to protect yourself in whatever you do. I think you need to keep track, record, everything that' you're doing... for your own protection.

    patrick swayze has been very ill lately and you should probably just return it with a "feel better" note. he has enough to worry about, and you finding his phone should be some moderate comfort. and that was probably medical marijuana in those illegal pics anyway.

    I would of got into contact with him like you did, at first.

    But, if he's going to be a dick when you're clearly doing a real nice thing, then it's time to teach a lesson. I'd send him another message to give him a shot at being less of a dick or elaborating.

    If he's still a dick, I'd still send him that phone. Piece by piece.

    I actually saw this fool on TV once and he's easily one of the dumbest people I've ever seen from California. That's saying something.


    But WOW at some of the posts in here. lol Who cares if this guy is smoking weed? (probably an accurate assumption) If you think OP should tell the cops bc of that then wooow that's scary.

    so we have a c-list rapper who's name is an off-shoot of patrick swayze's. and on top of that, he has a b ig ego and is a d-bag.

    the popular consensus seems to be, and i concur with "take the bold, smash it against a brick wall, and send it back with no return address label."

    If he was doing something illegal TO someone else, turn it into the cops. If not, no matter how much of a dick he is about it, just return it unharmed.

    Don't do it for karma, which is BS.
    Don't do it for hopes of an award.
    Don't do it for any other reason, then it is the right thing to do.

    In this day and age, with all the crap around us everyday, it would be nice, if people just started doing the right thing.

    Just send it back with no return address or anything that would lead back to you.
    Better to be safe than sorry.
    If the stuff on it is illegal, I'm with the ones saying to turn it in to the authorities.

    I just laughed LOUD here at work. Thanks.

    As for the phone, I would tell him to mail you a UPS or FedEx return label for the box. He can do it online and it'll probably only cost 8-10 bucks.

    You should not be inconvenienced by this A-Hole. Make him do the work to get his property back. As far as the illegal stuff, posting them online (anonoymously) might be funny. It'll make him think twice before leaving his phone somewhere and being a dick about it.

    I think he's saying (and I am too) that it's excessive to get the guy into legal trouble if what he's doing isn't hurting anyone. I'd bet money what OP is referring to is that the guy is smoking weed in pics.

    You would really give the cops the phone for something like that?

    I say mail him the SIM/Data card and keep the damn thing, if he's going to be a jerk. He has his numbers back, you have a new Blackberry. Win/Win.

    (I wouldn't really do that, but it sounds good.)

    You could always play a fun game of taking it apart, and then sending it back to him piece by piece each month...although shipping may get expensive.

    quick update.

    i did ask him if he could send me a prepaid shiiping label or reimburse me for the shipping and he hasnt responded so far.

    as far as whats illegal. i wont elaborate but i think some people would think it affects other people and some people wouldnt. i honestly just want this douche to respond so i can be done with it.
