This Lyft rider left their phone in the vehicle. It happens all the time. You’d think that resolving the problem would be simple, but that’s where things became tricky. This person decided to lie his way into a phone hostage situation in a position where doing the right thing would have cost him nothing. And this individual was not going to allow it to happen. So she decided to file the case to rhe police. She did not get her phone back from the scammer, but at least held him accountable. Following is he story of OP in her own words. Do give it a read till the end.
