Now a few things about this story.
1) 3 mobile phones?
2) was she out on the rob and the robber got robbed?
3) did get mugged, but added a couple of mobile phones and a iPad to her list of contents in the handbag?
4) big set up for an insurance claim?
5) might have got mugged and my best wishes to her!
All it needed was, there was £1,000's in her purse and they drove off with her sports car (she may find it hard to prove the last one).
