If You're Going To Use Someone's Credit Card Fraudulently, Perhaps Don't Ring Up $800,000 Worth Of Charges

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."
