(Philly Burbs)   You might go unnoticed spending $1,600 on stolen credit cards at a store that sells a lot of expensive things. Not so much if you spend $1,600 in a single visit to 7-Eleven   (phillyburbs.com) divider line 44

fusillade762: What is that like, the whole store?


Serious Slurpee binge?

Things my local 7-Eleven sells that are even remotely expensive:
* Booze
* Tobacco
* Money Orders
* Gift Cards (stores or online games)

$1,600 of booze or tobacco (or damn near anything else in the store) is still way too much to carry, and at least at my local store, you have to pay cash for money orders, so I'm guessing most of what this guy bought had to be gift cards.

Oh, I forgot, in a lot of states, 7-Elevens also sell lottery tickets. Might've just bought a farkload of those.

that's what I was guessing too. I've always wanted to buy an entire case of those scratch offs. Surely one of them would be a kind of big winner.

I'm betting it was the cheese bratwurst on the roller heaters. Man, as soon as you eat one of those $1.50 beauties, you just want another. 999 cheese bratwurst later and you might as well just rob the place.

You know that big credit card hack a few months ago? Bastards got my business card and whoever ended up with it, over the course of 4-5 days, racked up about $1600 at Dollar General in Texas. Dollar. General. WTF?

That's a lot of potato chips.

Since Capital One actually caught it before I did (I rarely use the card so don't check the balance daily), I'm actually hoping they got a whole lot of jail time, along with whoever their partner in crime was that let them use a fake credit card at the store... Dunno the outcome though, other than I didn't have to pay for any of it.

If they have pumps they could be pulling the whole "You give me the cash and I'll put it on my card" thing

Cant buy lottery tickets with a credit card and cant buy gift cards with one either a lot of places.

Nope. If I'm not mistaken there is a rule that credit cards cannot be accepted for making purchases of lottery tickets.

Well that would be super dumb if you got a big win, since you'd have to go in to collect it. Create a paperwork trail, on something obviously stolen to begin with.

.... And the cashier didn't request photo ID with the purchase to allow that to happen? A single visit that doubles the day's sales. Sounds kind of like Superman III plot going on. Cashier probably knows the guy and is going to get a kickback for letting it happen.

How many quarts of malt liquor IS that?
 
2012-08-23 03:46:15 AM
The cards were reported stolen in neighboring Cinnaminson.

From the Peanut Brittle House on Gumdrop Lane?
 
2012-08-23 03:53:40 AM
89 30-packs of Natural Ice? Yeah, the math supports that. It's scientific fact!
 
2012-08-23 04:00:43 AM
Perhaps the store clerk that sold the dude $1600 worth of shiat from 7-11 has some 'splainin' to do, as well.
 
2012-08-23 04:24:12 AM
I just went to a 7-11 for lunch (you are jealous, I know). I started to pick up some windshield fluid... it was 4 bucks.

So I thought of this article and realized that while EVERYTHING is twice as much as it should be, how would you even CARRY that much out of there? Cigarettes and booze included, its just not possible.

I was figuring Bayard's Chocolate House.

/Actual place, and actually in Cinnaminson.

Cards? Plural? Dude maxed out a card and went on to the next one and the clerk still doesn't ask for picture ID?

Yeah, definitely something wrong with this picture.

Cell phones, too. My local 7-11's sell prepaid phones (including a few pretty pricey models) and minutes/features cards for them.

Yeah, of course I want to show my ID to every no-good half wit who rings me up. Now they have the address where that nice new TV is going to be.

It's 7-11, not Best Buy. Are you telling me 7-11 sells nice TVs now? I mean I knew about the video games...

Anyway. Yeah I actually learned the whole 'cashier is in on it' thing from you guys, so thank you for reminding me that lots of people are dishonest. (I seriously forget this a lot of the time)
