Woman uses Apple AirTag to catch her moving company in a lie
It is well known that Apple's AirTags are very nifty little accessories which can be used to easily track the location of lost or misplaced everyday items like keys or wallets. However, after car thieves have started to abuse these little devices to steal luxury vehicles in Canada a few months ago, a woman from the US has now turned the tables and found a clever way to use her Apple AirTag to catch a dishonest truck driver in a blatant lie.
According to a report by ZDNet, Valerie McNulty and her family had to move out of their house in Colorado because her husband was transferred to another military base. Their employer consequently hired a moving company that was supposed to transport the family's belongings to their new home in the state of New York. In order to track her property, she placed an Apple AirTag in one of the moving boxes, which came in very handy when the estimated delivery date of her belongings passed.
When she called the truck driver who was responsible for transporting her boxes, he allegedly told her that he had just picked them up in Colorado, insinuating that it would still take a few more days until he could deliver the items. But thanks to the Apple AirTag she had placed in one of the boxes, McNulty knew that her belongings were already in New Jersey, only a few hours away from her new home. When she confronted the driver with that fact, he confirmed that he went to New Jersey to be with his significant other and later negotiated a new delivery date. McNulty has since confirmed on Facebook that she has finally received her household goods.
