Selfie Incrimination: Credit Card Crimes of Stupidity

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

credit card crimeProbably one of the most popular types of stories that we post on this bail bond blog, we are proud (and a little saddened) to announce another selfie incrimination story.  This one involves a stolen credit card, a beauty supply store and a not so intelligent thief.

This past week in Ocala, Florida, a young woman needed some beauty supplies.  So she went on a shopping spree at a local beauty supply store. The problem is that she went on the shopping spree with someone else’s credit card.  According to reports, the clerk thought something was up when the woman couldn’t produce a proper government ID.  The clerk didn’t feel comfortable completing the transaction so he asked the customer to pose with her credit card for a selfie (I guess it isn’t officially a selfie if someone else takes it, but in this case we will make an exception).  Anyway, the owner of the card eventually realized it was stolen and reported the false charges.  Catching the woman is not going to be that difficult thanks to her ill-advised photo shoot with the stolen card. Read the original story below.
