3 More Dumb Ways To Get Robbed Using Apps

1. Post a status update on Facebook that you are taking a vacation, and your house will be empty, while you visit a sketchy neighborhood in another country.

2. Sitting, parked in a van, that is getting robbed in a sketchy neighborhood, while you are distracted using an Etch-A-Sketch simulator app.

3. Seeing who robbed your van, and then trying to sketch their image using a sketching app to show the police, and then having your iPhone, including the sketch stolen, so that you have no evidence about the thieves sketchy appearance.
