When a thief stole a backpack and a GPS unit from Amanda Enayati's car, he picked the wrong target to mess with
Enayati, a journalist, writer, cancer survivor and former solo child refugee from Iran, didn't take it lying down. Looking on Craigslist, she found an ad for a GPS that looked suspiciously like hers. Following the advertiser's email address, she found that he had also used it for signing up to a "low-rent dating site". From there, it was a short distance to his and his dubious friends' MySpace profiles, and enough evidence to put him behind bars.
