Apparently he would watch guests check out and then sneak into their hotel rooms and call the front desk asking to extend his stay – sometimes for up to 10 days. Then he would go to town on the previous guest’s credit card, like $9,000 to town, ordering the best wines, room service, and even clothes.
Who is to know how long he’d been doing this, but he finally got caught. His slip up was sneaking into a room that had been previously occupied by a hotel worker, security knew the worker had left so they called police. So if you’re going to try this trick, be sure to know who your victim is!
