Recently we had the New Orleans meet for Mustang Evolution. Well I made the drive to N.O. that Sat. evening after I got off work hung out and had a blast. I decided to go back that night and party with everyone.
We went to Rick's Cabaret that night and I forgot to stop and pick up some cash from the ATM. So, I just used my cards everywhere. Well I paid with my bank card to get into Rick's. I walk in and straight to the bar to buy my first drink of the night there (been using my card all night). My card instantly comes back DECLINED! (Didn't really know why) So I give him another card (credit) DECLINED! Now, I'm kind of wondering whats up because I know both cards has plenty to cover even a $500.00 hold. I give him my 3rd card (credit) and he only does it as a single drink purchase and no tab. I Pay $8.00 (yes rip off for a Bud Light -- supposed to be classy). Night goes on, and I use my bank card at other stores with no problem.
Well two weeks later I get a phone call from my credit card company verifying some charges in Lafayette, LA and Los Angles, CA (for RDJ entertainment or something) I deny and go through all sorts of bull ****. Well I check all my cards and begin to notice that all 3 have bogus charges on them. So I shut them down immediately. Between all three cards the individual has run up over $1500.00 in charges.
Investigator got back with me today. It was the bartender at Rick's Cabaret. He has been making charges to my card as TIPS. Thus taking days to clear, but he gets to take the money home that night. I suppose he works in Laffy or has a buddy that helped him out or something. But I have been given back all my money and new cards are in route (2 already made it)
I would love to beat the piss out of this guy. I am hoping that he gets fired or even arrested! He could have possibly messed up my credit for when I purchased my house in less than a month had it not been caught.
