1000 Hand Written Contacts From Stolen Iphone

A Chinese man, Mr Zou's mobile phone (Iphone 4) was stolen after sharing a texi with 3 strangers. He used his friend's phone to send a message to his stolen phone, "I know that you were the person sitting next to me. If you check the numbers stored in my phone, you know what I will do to you. Please send my phone to this address xxx."
