Here it is, the second installment of Android Police Files. We're still getting a steady stream of email, and while we can't post them all, we've hand-picked eight more to share with our darling readers. As you're about to see, many people can't seem to grasp what it is we do. We're not crime fighters, nor are we IT ninjas. We blog. Still, that doesn't mean we don't try our best to help out. We think our advice is useful, but we'll let you be the judge.
I want to report about my phone..i wanna show some apps appear in my phone and send all my info and control all my phone..if you guys can't do or check, i will call 911 or send my phone to police station..thanks a lots
We can't do or check, so feel free to go to the police. Just make sure to delete anything incriminating before handing over the phone. It's bad enough being the person who called 911 because you didn't know how to use your phone. It's another thing to attract attention for that selfie you took of you and your drunk friends at a frat party you were too young to attend.

Dear Policing Rep,
Help, help, please, I've gone to local authorities with a true problem, someone has more control of my phone than I do. I know the files are there, however the goofy phone won't let me delete them.
This is truly serious, under my name they searched all kinds of sexual acts, but the worst was how to kill someone with a punch to the jugular vein.
I'm scared and pissed off at the same time, Verizon won't do shit and I'm on my fourth phone.
I beg of you, please help me find who this is and bring them to justice.
So you - excuse me, "someone else" - has searched for some explicit content, and you want the police, your carrier, and now us to believe that those files on your phone are not yours. Right. A factory reset should take care of the problem, but if "someone" won't let you do that, we suggest seeking legal counsel instead.
Subject: help my phone is being cloned
From: XXX YYY (where XXX is the first name, and also the first word of the message)
XXX i need some advice fast,my phone is being cloined by some sick f!@#$%^&*()(*&^%$ it tells me every time i make a call it says call diverted,this has been happening for awhile,at first i thought it was my boyfriend being insecure,however i've been through several phones(which believe me is getting spendy)i really cant get into details about the who or why however that is being investigated, any apps or settings that could block my phone from being clonned
Wait, your phone is being cloned? If the authorities find out who has managed to pull off this black magic, let us know. If there's one thing better than one HTC One, it's two HTC Ones. Buying phones for the entire team is about to get a whole lot cheaper.
Subject: You must write a review about this game!
This is an amazing game! I've enjoyed the game play. I spent a very good time experience. I made a pig of all Mahjong game, and I have to confess I will place this one in my favourites (bolding added).
Firstly it makes me feel relax after work or a hard day! It’s really different and more original than most Majhong games; The graphics are beautiful and you move through an original universe!
Secondly, the WALL games is really hard enough to have fun, I burnt my brain out on several levels But fortunately, you have helps so everybody can come through!
Thirdly, the snake mode is revolutionary, it is the favourite of my family, for the apprenticeship and for the challenge also (depending the difficulty played). It trains your dexterity and asks you a big visual memory!
Finally, the game is free and has 450 levels; It will make you happy in every way.
We LOVE pig Mahjong games. Seriously. Get us a copy. Cameron just received the drugs he was mailed last week, and we think he's in the perfect frame of mind for a review.
That's All Folks!
