lol wow. stolen credit card to buy gift cards. pretty ingenious...

always check out the person who is posting the card as well. someone with 4 posts and joined very recently is probably the first clue...

if a retailer had a problem then I would make a huge fuss and get SOMETHING back. You can be denied the item, but you won't have to pay for it.

That's what happened..

i bought 200dollar worth of Starbuck gift card for 150, transferred balance to my starbucks card.
apparently after 2 days, my card was deactivated and total balance, including the balance i bought with my credit card, was gone and not seized.

i should've called the police damn.. i still had his phone number and everything at that time

Just be aware that retailers go after these gift cards weeks and months after the crime has been committed. Just because you've had the card for 1 week, doesn't mean you are in the clear. When a card is found to made fraudulent purchases, all of those gift cards are instantly cancelled, one of which could be one you already paid for.
