If You're Going To Use Someone's Credit Card Fraudulently, Perhaps Don't Ring Up $800,000 Worth Of Charges
from the it's-the-little-things-that-get-you dept
A New York City cabbie has apparently plead guilty to ripping off a passenger for $800,000, after keeping his credit card number on file and using it over the next few months. The cardholder was clearly wealthy (he had taken the cab to an airport in New Jersey to pick up his private jet), but if you’re using the card for fraudulent charges, don’t you have to realize that, sooner or later, people are going to notice hundreds of thousands of dollars of questionable charges? Amazingly, it actually took a little while and it wasn’t the guy or anyone who worked for him — but the credit card company that noticed “suspicious activity.”

If you’re the kind of person who wouldn’t even notice $800,000 worth of charges on your credit card, then maybe, just maybe, you deserve it. Just a little bit.
Why I would most certainly take all of that extra money off of your hands.
You won’t be needing this and the economy will be stimulated quite nicely with your generous donation.
Now, if I may say so:

I remember reading about a butler who stole 500k or so from his employers over the course of a year before they noticed. He was only a few years from retirement, and he spent it all on crack and prostitutes.
Kudos old man, way to go!

$800K = Pattern
My credit card companies see $80 of charges as “suspicious activity”.
Re: $800K = Pattern
mine would be calling me on $.80. I am broke…
Remind me not to get a card from American Express. If their anti-fraud department is so incompetent that it takes them several months to notice $800K in fraudulent charges, they are failures.
When my credit card was stolen, I didn’t report it. The thief spent less than my wife.
