matthasaproblem: I couldn't even rent a damn Chevy econobox until I was 25, what idiot approved that rental?
LlamaGirl: Are they going to get off on affluenza?
The sound of one hand clapping: Interesting that they were caught cause the car was reported stolen. I'm guessing the renter was suspicious and decided to call the cops but that would beg the question 'why rent to them in the first place?'
stpauler: I was once a 19 year old kid...but I've never been two 19 year old kids.

pueblonative: For a moment I was trying to figure out how in the hell did you put $12 mil on a credit card. I'd think you'd get the side eye even if you used a Centurian.
madgordy: Hmm, teenagers and an AMEX no limit credit card.If kids got ahold of MY credit card they might have been able to rent a YUGO, and stay at a Motel 6.sigh.
HMS_Blinkin: LlamaGirl: Are they going to get off on affluenza?Nah, they're guilty of attempted affluenza. That's a much more serious crime. It's ok to misbehave if you're rich, but pretending to be rich in order to misbehave is a felony./because ultimately, the real crime is being poor
lelio: I can't understand the house rental. Shirley they thought this through and realized that someone would figure out in a day that the credit card was stolen, and then could easily track the thieves down to where they are living.Plus who rents out a home on credit card?
Toy Boat: StopLurkListen:I just rented a Chevy Spark for $14 a day. Is that the rock-bottom of car rental rates now? (It was an OK car, definitely aimed at "value" customers ... but the interior was designed by committee... too many mismatched colors and elements)WTF is a Chevy Spark? (I'm old.)
Toy Boat: StopLurkListen:Their entry-level model. MSRP $12170.[upload.wikimedia.org image 850x518]Looks like a glorified roller skate.
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.
DecemberNitro: Why would I be two kids?
wildcardjack: 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.
Toy Boat: Looks like a glorified roller skate.
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.
vudukungfu: Why paint any car "dogshiat orange"?
