Scammed in Port Chester: Hey, Where's My iPhone?

Woman thought she was going to get help fixing her phone, but instead had it stolen.

A worker at a Westchester Avenue restaurant thought she was getting a break when a man offered to fix her troubled iPhone.

She was wrong.

Port Chester police say the 29-year-old Yonkers woman instead had her iPhone stolen.

At about 11:30 a.m. Thursday, the woman met a man on Westchester Avenue near Traverse Avenue and they had a conversation about her iPhone. Police said the man claimed to work at a local electronics store and offered to take the iPhone so he could make repairs.

When several hours passed, police said the victim called the electronics store only to find that the man has no connection with the store. And, her iPhone is gone.
