You guys are so judgmental.
Don't you remember what it's like being two 19 year olds?!!

For those of you who ate wondering how someone could have fallen for this, and for those of you lamenting their credit limit, google RichKidsOfInstagram.

/was introduced to them here on Fark. It's a tumblr if I'm not mistaken.

baorao: It must be nice to have the kind of card and transaction history that your issuer doesn't flag your account when a $27,000 charge pops up.


This. Suddenly my crappy credit limit looks like a good thing.

Seriously how in the fark did this not set off farking alarm bells all over the place?

if they had been typical WHITE 19 year olds, nobody would have done a damn thing for them but laugh in their faces.

"Sure, kid, you want to rent a McLaren?  AH-hah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-wheeze-ha ha ha ha ha ha.  Ah, you're funny, kid.  Now get the fark outta here and stop wasting my time."

But because they look like they could be scions of incredibly wealthy foreign nationals, it was probably more like "Oh, can i get you a mineral water while we wash your car?  Would you like to sit in our private VIP waiting room?  Falafel, anyone?"

DecemberNitro: Why would I be two kids?


Some kids make friends, sorry you missed out.

It would arouse suspicion for a 19-year-old to rent a $12 million house and $240,000 sports car on a
stolen card.....especially if it has a credit limit of only, say, $5000. (Which the kid probably maxed out
within about 10 minutes of stealing the card in the first place.)

I guess when I was 19 I'd have gone magpie and bought stuff  for myself. These days I'd buy items to resell online, but that's actually my legit business model. The trick is avoiding cereal numbers. And maybe avoiding being caught on camera. I'd use an intermediary buyer so my new inventory purchase wasn't localized, get that 19 year old to make the buys at least 250 miles from where I resell them.

I avoid cereal numbers also. For example "Product 19". If they can't take the time to come up with a real name, I'm not eating it.

Bill and Ted were heard to say "most excellent," as the credit card was swiped.

Toy Boat: Looks like a glorified roller skate.


Wrong. Not glorified.

cgraves67: That sounds awesome, but you have to move along quickly to avoid being caught. Also, bright orange luxury sports cars may not be the way to go.


Bright orange... VERY LOUD... Super car. There isn't anything "luxury" about it besides the price tag.

Thank God they didn't steal a bike!

vudukungfu: Why paint any car "dogshiat orange"?


More importantly, just what the hell are you feeding your dog if its shiat is that color?!

/Also, Mohannad and Nhimia??

Came for Blank Check, leaving frustrated I'm a moment too late.

Was the card registered to Mrs. Nusbaum?

/just chain them up to the church next door.
