Man Loses Money After Lending His Phone to a Stranger

Here is something to consider before you lend your phone to a stranger.

Rob Gilliam of Charlotte, North Carolina is out almost $45 hundred after lending his phone to a stranger in a bar. Security footage from the bar shows a man walking up to Gilliam and asking to borrow his phone to make a call.

“It wasn’t until Sunday that I realized he had venmoed himself $4,430,” said Gilliam.

Yo, don’t lend your phone to strangers. I know being nice and helping is the way to go, but if you’re signed into things on your phone…it could be disastrous. Maybe make the call for someone to be safe. Yikes.
