    Ok Im not gonna post the name of the company. But I got a gift card for xmas and I damaged the card when I ripped it off so the code was unreadable. I call them and tell them the problem and they ended up putting the balance of the gift card on my account. They never closed the gift card tho. So I kinda figured out a way to read the code today and I used the gift card to purchase something. Its their fault not mines, right?

    How much we talking? Hundreds of dollars? I probably wouldn't sweat it if it's under $100.

    You'll simply be charged for it and be asked to pay

    I can't imagine they even pay attention to that for such a low amount. You'll be fine.

    Sentenced 8 years but the upside is you'll only serve about 3. Worth it imo.

    I think gift card fraud is what Adebisi was in for.

    Snitches get bitches.

    Maybe I've forgotten the actual expression.

    How much time has elapsed since you'd rung and today? Might be a departmental thing, making the rounds. Also, credited was a third-party checking or in-house account with said company? I'd imagine you should play nice and hold off if the latter.

    Edit: Just saw 50 USD. Spend it, but play aghast and pay it back if they get in touch with you over it.
