I would not want a credit card with $135,000 available on it.

It's definitely dangerous.  There are people out there, and I don't mean exceedingly rich people, who have a million dollars in available spread credit over various cards.  People who game the system to get the highest FICO scores possible and all that.

I don't go to strip clubs often.  But there is no way one club can provide that much value in one night.

Actually using a small percentage of your available credit and having a high ratio of available credit to income both lower your score.

Must have been a big sack to carry all those singles... overheard one pole babe to another calling the wadded up bills "booger balls" or some such... single Mom problems... straightening out $1 bills so they can go thru the counting machine.

Okay, everyone, up the ante and use $2 dollar bills... that'll just mess with their heads a bunch, but in a good way!

PS:  no Susan B. Anthony coins please
PSS: well now that would be a show, like a flat pink pong ball
PSSS: get you some C2 double loonies... ( My Canuck brothers, do C2 coins have a nick name?)... double the tip, double the head banging...
PSSSS: Well, I'm off to the bank to change a Benjamin for tonight's fun...

Well, if you left with two nice sports cars or a small house it could work out. But I'm pretty sure that's not how strip clubs work.

Protip: never, ever take a credit card or an ATM card to a strip club.

When you spend an amount like $135,000 at a strip club then you're doing something very very wrong either way. It's just far cheaper and easier to get an escort.

And it's not surprising that of all the stripclubs, it was Scores who was involved. Why Howard Stern talked up that place like it was some kind of titty mecca, I don't know.

This can't be said enough times, but DON'T BUY SEX WITH A CREDIT CARD. When buying porn, strippers or hookers, always pay cash. Apart from not giving over your card number, you do not want these people knowing your real name.

In this case, it actuall might.  These same wemon have evidently been investigated for exactly this sort of behaviour.
It wasn't just a simple matter of the drugging.  Once incriminating evidence was there, they were blackmailing men.

I would normally say the same thing.  That this dude simply lost control and was stupid with his card.  But in this case, I think he really was scammed and blackmailed.

But Boss, look at the big picture.  Krugman is one of our biggest customers.  We can't afford to lose his business.  He was on the fence, Boss.  He was "I'm thinking that I need to move my business horizontally and expand my vendor list.  I was like "No way.  Have another beer, Krugman.  Look at the history you and our company share.  We have ties.  You can always trust us to be there for you."  Then I see him eying Dollie.  I know Dollie doesn't do the Champagne Room 'cause she wants to be a movie star.  So I says to Krugman.  I get you and I get her in to the CR and we can shake on another year of business?  No new vendors?  He says "Deal but I'm getting everything."  Boss, I had to pay the bouncers, I had to pay the DJ and I even had to corner the floor manager and convince him that Dollie had to do the Champagne.  Dollie wanted triple the going rate and she got it.  I gave Krugman a lot of tip money but two songs later, he came out with the biggest smile on his face.  "McDonald's has got me and my family for another year.  Hardees will never do anything like this for their customers."

I know that's a big investment but Krugman's got three kids who are totally addicted to McNugs.  The cost per sale on those things will more than make up for last night.  Now, tonight, I'm working on the Pennington account.  She's hinting that Wendy's salads are better but I think a trip to the opera and an invite to an art gallery party will keep her in our corner.  I'll need some money for a tux, limo and the gallery's featured artist won't talk to anyone who doesn't donate 10g to Doctors without Boarders who are Hoarders.  I'll just help myself to the till right after the lunch rush.

Everyone pays for it one way or another, and in the grand scheme of things, hookers are far cheaper than marriage.

See! There you go! Spend 1/2 your life in school and become a well educated doctor who doesn't know any better than to use your CC in a strip club and get ripped off Big Time OR be like one of us working stiffs who have been in and out of them all the time, dated and banged strippers and know better how Not to get taken for over 100K. Not that I have 100K anyway but I've had Loads of Fun in my life!

Being too intoxicated to consent to sex seems to work in sexual assault cases.

But you can't be too intoxicated toconsent while scantily clad women convince you to part with your money?

(Side note, strip clubs aren't exactly about "value".)

I'm pretty sure I've seen this article before, and it wasn't just one night.  It was thousands of dollars a night, but on more than one occasion.

And that's the reason I don't buy the guys story.  If the club did it to you once, that's when you complain.  You don't keep going back to the club twice a week for several months, and then complain that they were ripping you off.

I use to go to the Crazy Horse in SF. Personally knew 2 strippers there and we would go drinking after their shift. Let me tell ya, they know who the rich people are and how to get the max out of their pockets. Most of these clients don't care, but then you got this guy in the article who probably had too much blow and burbon as well as an exceptionally large credit card.

Even after a bottle of Corzo 4 grams of wax and a kief blunt, I still know when someone is trying to swindle me. One of the main reasons I only bring a 1k credit card with me.

/If you don't know the strippers, they will try to get on your nuts and squeeze the cash out of ya-- it's their job after all.

The story is this happened on 3 different occasions in November.  I don't make a lot of money but I have a bad habit of not checking my receipts after I use my card because I just assume it's gotta be reasonably close to what I expect it to be.  For people like this doctor with a high/no-limit AmEx card he probably did the same, so when he got his November bill he was probably shocked.  Apparently he reported it as fraud, but Scores is pursuing him for the money.

The women that did him in are accused of doing the same thing to 4 other men.  And that's only 4 other men that we know of.  Guaranteed there are many others too embarrassed to come forward, or want to maintain discretion about what they did.
