Guy tries to buy drinks with bartender’s stolen credit card

The guy in this story is saying something sort of similar, I’m sure. From the Associated Press:

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police say a homeless man broke into a car in a Miami Beach garage, stole a credit card and then tried to use it to buy a beer from the bar in The Clevelander.

But the case was cracked when 53-year-old David Weber handed the card to the bartender who took his order Monday night. The Miami Herald reports the bartender noticed he had just been handed his own credit card.

The bartender called Miami Beach police. Weber was charged with credit card fraud and theft. He remained in the Miami-Dade County Jail early Wednesday.

Police say Weber told them he found the credit card on the ground.

As they say across the pond, unlucky. It’s been a couple months since we’ve had one, but … it’s the Lawsuit of the Month. (Yes, I know it’s technically not a lawsuit.)
