A PHONE THIEF in China who pickpocketed an iPhone has sent a massive handwritten list of contacts to his victim.

The thief stole the phone when he shared a taxi with the man and later received a text from the owner, urging him to return the phone and warning that he was a powerful man who should not be crossed.

According to AFP reports Zou Bin, the owner of the phone, works in the drinks industry which is known to have links to Chinese gangs.

The thief then took on the unusual task of writing out almost 1,000 contacts stored in the phone – that’s 11 pages of phone numbers.

The Telegraph reports that the phone’s owner was returning from a wedding when the robbery took place.

Bin said that the incident taught him not to give up in future if his phone is lost, and to save all of his contacts to a SIM card.
