Convenience Store Clerk Recognizes Mom’s Stolen Credit Card – Dumb Criminal of the Day
Credit card fraud seems to be tougher to pull off if you steal cards from people you know. This genius from Pennsylvania allegedly stole a credit card out of a car and tired to use it at a convenience store where the card holder’s daughter was working.
According to KansasCity.com the 19-year-old tried to use the stolen card at a convenience store, but the clerk working noticed her own mother’s name on the card and also recognized the teen trying to use it as a former classmate of her own.
The kid was spotted trying to put the stolen card back into the car he stole it from and was taken into custody.
Let's just say that an impromptu high school reunion is not the ideal situation for a petty criminal.
