Identity Theft Attorney Near Me in Denver | Man Uses Stolen Credit Card Belonging to Waitress to Pay Bill

Posted by Terry O'Malley | Jun 21, 2018 | 0 Comments

Using someone else's credit card without authorization is charged as Identity Theft in Denver, Golden, and Brighton. A man is facing this charge after what I can only describe as an insane example of karma coming to bite you in the butt. According to the report, the man was at a restaurant and used a credit card to pay his bill. The only problem was, the credit card belonged to the waitress – and she had no intention of paying for his meal. The waitress reported that her purse had been stolen from her car a few days earlier. When police arrived at the restaurant, the waitress's social security card and driver's license was found in the man's possession. I mean, what are the chances?
