    13 Year Old Steals Dad's Credit Card to Buy... company

    http://www.money.co.uk/article/10003...uy-hookers.htm
    A 13 year old from Texas who stole his Dad's credit card and ordered two hookers from an escort agency, has today been convicted of fraud and given a three year community order.


    Ralph Hardy, a 13 year old from Newark, Texas confessed to ordering an extra credit card from his father's existing credit card company, and took his friends on a $30,000 spending spree, culminating in playing "Halo" on an Xbox with a couple of hookers in a Texas motel.


    The credit card company involved said it was regular practice to send extra credit cards out as long as all security questions are answered.
    The escort girls who were released without charge, told the arresting officers something was up when the kids said they would rather play Xbox than get down to business.


    Police said they were alerted to the motel by a concerned delivery clerk, whom after delivering supplies of Dr Pepper, Fritos and Oreos had been asked by the kids where they could score some chicks and were willing to pay. They explained they had just made a big score at a "World of Warcraft" tournament and wanted to get some relaxation. On noting the boys age the delivery clerk informed the authorities.


    When police arrived at the motel they found $3,000 in cash, numerous electronic gadgets, an Xbox video console with numerous games, and the two local escort girls.


    Ralph had reportedly told police that his father wouldn't mind, as it was his birthday last week and he had forgot to get him a present. The father, a lawyer said he had been too busy, but would take him on a surprise trip to Disneyland instead.



    Asked why he ordered two escorts, Ralph said he thought it was the thing to do when you win a "World of Warcraft" tournament. They told the suspicious working girls they were people of restricted growth working with a traveling circus, and as State law does not allow those with disabilities to be discriminated against they had no right to refuse them.


    The $1,000 a night girls sensing something up played "Halo" on the Xbox with the kids, instead of selling their sexual services.


    Ralph's ambition is to one day become a politician.
    I bet his next venture is to start a hosting company :-P

    thousand dollar a night call girls dont say no/
    "they were more interested in playing xbox games then getting down to business."
    So one could conclude it was on the minds of the call girls.

    A couple of kids with a $30,000 credit limit: Isn't that every kids dream? I didn't know hookers came into the scenario.

  16. #16
    1. I'm jealous that i wouldnt even think of trying that at 13.

    2. Parents better make use of that kid, if he can do that, he can paint the house, wash the car/cars, clean the house etc..

    Maybe if the father paid a little attention to the kid, this would not have happened. Parents need to start spending time with their kids, take some time out of their busy week and spend it with your kid so they don't go out and pull a stunt like this.

    If I had the chance again I'd never would have gone to night clubs and spent all my money on alcohol and all that time chicken hawking for girls. I'd would have just bought a few cases of beer and order a hooker(s) once a month.

    That kid wasn't afraid of the repercussions ? At 13 I knew if I did something like charging $30 000 on my father's credit card I could expect him to hang me from my balls.

    I hope the father isn't sending the son to Disney World after he charged $30,000 on the credit card.

    Yea... exactly. Plus... don't most CC companies have fraud detection? If I spend a couple thousand in a days period my CC would be calling me up.

    Most CC companies detect odd spending and notify the CC holder within 48 hours, as a lot of times its due to fraud chrages.

    $30k... and nothing... suspicious...

    Also... is anyone else finding it very hard to find this story on another news agency?

    Depending on the dads income, and his credit limit, $30K in one month is no big deal, and wouldn't have set off any red flags, being that they were bought at legit places.

    Actually if you have centrion business card (black card) there is almost anything you can charge on it but to get it you need to have spent $250,000 a year with american express which comes out to $20,000 a month, so it might have looked normal, but then again the Credit card company is never told so we might never know.

    Nope not to their bedroom, but a nice quiet empty room without phone/internet/toys/etc would do well.
