Woman Sues AmEx For Letting Her Spend Too Much

from the responsibility?--what's-that? dept

You might remember the online gambling husband and wife team who lost over $100,000 and then promptly blamed their credit card company and sued them for letting them spend so much on a gambling site. Well, $100,000 is nothing, apparently. A woman who claims (falsely) that she is a Saudi Arabian princess and a former Victoria’s Secret model, apparently caught “shopping fever” and rung up nearly $1 million in charges on an American Express card. When AmEx came to collect, she sued them, claiming they “induced” her to spend, by promising a “flexible” payment plan. In her mind, it seems, “flexible payment plan” means “you never have to pay.” Once again, it’s the latest thing in personal responsibility: there’s always someone else to blame.
