How stupid.  Big brother cameras are everywhere and you can't get away with anything.  It is so easy to track you down.  Was it worth it?

Well, thanks for posting this because it makes all of us aware of those thieves out there. This tactics somehow remind us to be more efficient and to have a strong security especially nowadays that most of us are really using credit cards. We can't deny that using credit cards is quite common to us but I think you might be alarmed because it was said that the debit and credit card interchange fees have begun a large fight among the government, merchants and financial institutions. Paying massive banks whenever a consumer utilizes a card isn't pleasant, and a lot of businesses are trying to find ways around having to pay a financial institution for money they're owed. Here is the proof: Merchants moving away from debit and credit cards
