    Of all the homeless people I have come across grubbing for money I never had such a specific request, " vitamin water", must be an upper west side thing.

    Personally I think the women is a ditz (and mostly probably a democrat, a very liberal one too ) Why anyone would lend their credit card to someone they do not know, regardless of homelessness or not is beyond me. Yea, she was smart enough to check the account after the fact, but this story could have easily been a horror story for her. She had such a bleeding heart she should have went to the store bought him his vitamin water, some eats and nicotine patches to eliminate the need for cigarettes in the future, heck you need a platinum card to buy a pack in NYC anyway.

    Who's the idiot clerk that rang up a homeless man with an AmEx Platinum card with a woman's name on it?

    Could she really claim fraud if he rang up tons of crap on it?

    I thought the same thing, I am sure she would have changed her tune once she found out he charged more then he said. She was lucky and although she says otherwise I doubt she would do it again.

    That was my first thought too, but then it occurred to me that in many retail stores you swipe your credit/debit cards yourself. I've used a card with someone else's name on it and was never questioned.

    If she willingly gave him the card she would have to be liable for anything he charged, wouldn't she?

    We could experiment - why don't you give me your credit card and I'll charge a bunch of stuff, then you claim fraud but I'll have witnesses say that you willingly gave me the card to buy brownie ingredients and in order to get the finest ingredients for you I needed a new HDTV, a Droid, and a trip to Hawaii.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    THAT'S what I wanna know....

    If Tyrone Biggums comes in with an AmEx Platinum WITH A WOMAN'S NAME ON IT, the clerk should probably check ID. Just maybe.

    rep'd Sir. Of all the scriptures, this one probably has had the most profound affect on my life.

    If she gave him the card to use...even if he rang up her entire limit...then she is out of luck...he did not steal it or use it under false pretenses...he had PERMISSION to use it. Stupid stupid woman.

    In that case she should give me her card. I can hear the gun shop and Ford calling my name
