Not really. They just have really erotic gifts.

Spencers is where I got a bike chain for my wallet. Was sweet.

What kind of an idiot uses his own internet service to commit such big time fraud? A free access point connection would have been much smarter. Most credit card fraud can always be busted using CCTV cameras. Its just that most stores do not feel its worth the effort connecting the video feed to the time-stamp on the transaction and consider it the cost of doing business. Obviously if you piss a store off like this they will then decide to put in the effort.

Believe it or not, in most states an individual can get a court order (after some considerable paper work, and putting up with much run-around by the store's legal department) to force the store to hand over CCTV tapes and transaction records if he really want to go after the guy who stole his card.

You'll notice that most criminals are complete dip-shit morons, because... well... there's just so many legally legit ways to screw people out of their money, and line your pockets with green.

Interesting scam. I wonder how many of the people who complained about losing the balance on their cards actually got their money back? It must have been frustrating to be one of the first handful of people to complain that your money mysteriously vanished, even though the store had a record of someone using it to make a purchase of hemorrhoid cream and ho-hos.

According to OregonLive, Zepeda was sentenced to 18 months of formal probation for his hustling and a simultaneous drunk driving conviction. If he violates probation, he will serve 13 months in prison.

AND HE WAS DRUNK???? Thats whats wrong the Ba$tard stole 6 grand and was driving drunk and no jail time AAAHAHAHAAH My Brain Hurts!

His IP Address? Really? That's like robbing a bank and leaving a nicely folded shirt with some hair, semen, and blood samples all in little labeled rubbermaid containers.Oh, and a yellow sticky-note revealing the robbers general location.
