> It was a weird and awkward phone call, on a really bad line, & he was being very very cagey about posting the wallet back, apparently because of the cost, and he really wanted me to come to Reading to meet him

He probably liked your photo and wanted a date? :-)

I'd gone one paranoid step further than that and decided he found pretty girls, stole their wallets, and then used returning their wallets as a way to get a date with them. Leaving him with cash, a date with a pretty girl, and the bonus starting point of them thinking 'what a nice person for not just ignoring my wallet'

But, err, crazy paranoia aside, yay for nice people who return wallets!

Erk. After all, j4 is lovely, but in my limited experience, driving license photos never, ever endear anyone to anybody...

addedentry says my driving licence photo makes me look like Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS. I was trying very hard not to smile at all so it wouldn't be disqualified as a passport photo, and I certainly do look quite, er, stern.

I am given to understand that some men like that sort of thing, though. ;-)

*googles* :-/ Oh dear; LOL.

Well, apparently people _do_. But even if I _were_ especially fond of "evil sadistic buxom nazi pseudo-scientists", I do not think my advised course of action would be to ring one up and tell her where I live, let alone try to pickpocket her! :)

PS. Much sympathy for last Saturday. I'm glad it turned up one way or another.

Blimey, that's devious. I'm not going to be leaving my wallet lying around near you! ;-) Well okay I probably would, hem hem

:-)

Sadly, although I have the plan, I haven't aquired decent wallet stealing skills yet.

*ponders* Maybe I should buy badgers and go for 'I found this badger and wondered if you'd left it at my house' ... 'what, you _didn't_?'....'oh, well I can't think of anyone else who would want it, maybe we should meet up' ;-)

LOL!

Now you're got me being paranoid, an aftermarket might make more sense. Pickpockets who just want cash pass on the rest of the wallet to a fence for a nominal fee, where it can be bought by identity thief, someone who wants a date, etc...

Now I think of it, that seems like a really horribly plausible idea...

presumably it doesn't work all that well, or he wouldn't need to do it more than once ... ;)

Yeah, that was roughly why I didn't want to go and meet him... :-}
