this reminds me of a time a few years ago when i was going to the nyu gym in union square. somehow i dropped my drivers license and amex outside of the building as i was getting my nyu id out of my wallet (i had just used the card a few mins earlier so i'm fairly certain that's where i dropped it). i was in the gym for no more than an hour and when i got back to my apt and noticed my credit card was gone, i called amex. someone had used the card to take a cab to the apple store at grand central, bought a laptop, then took a cab somewhere else.

i wondered what the odds are that the person that finds your lost credit card just happens to be scumbag enough to use it. either way, its pretty impressive that in the 1.5 hours the card was out of my possession, he/she racked up over 2k in charges before i canceled the card.

It's NYC. I'm surprised he/she only got away with $2k in 90 minutes.

+1.
Nothing impressive about only spending 2k in that time.

False. This is ridiculously easy in any major city.

it has nothing to do with nyc or being in a major city that its possible to spend 2k. i mean, theoretically the person could've spent 20k. i just didn't expect it to be so easy with an unsigned credit card, but then again the person had my drivers license so...

None of my cc's or even my bank card are signed.
I might get asked for ID 15% of the time.

Having your license means nothing. I was at the Apple store recently. No iD needed.
It's VERY easy.

All of my cards on the back say "ASK FOR ID!!!" I get asked for ID probably 1% of the time, but when I do I commend them.
