If this guy is a friend of yours, you may want to make sure he's not around next time you get sick.
A sick acquaintance with several credit cards apparently proved too tempting for a man who authorities have charged with 107 counts of fraudulent use of a credit card.

Officials with the Florence Police Department said 26-year-old Christopher Wade Hall, 2025 N. Wood Ave., Florence, has also been charged with first-degree theft of property.

"He went on a shopping spree for a few months with stolen credit cards," said Florence police detective Cliff Billingsley.

Authorities said the investigation indicates that Hall took 12 credit cards without the owner's permission.

"From what we have been able to determine, here in Florence he used two (cards) more than 100 times," Billingsley said.[link]

Not only did the man prey on his sick friend, he did it to the tune of $50k+ in meaningless expenses. The report goes on to say that all the purchases weren't local, so a grand jury will convene to see if any more charges will be filed.

News: My daughter is having surgery this morning (tonsils) so I may not be online today. Good thoughts and prayers are appreciated.

Can't believe the mind of a person who'd do this to his friend. Clearly got a psychological inability to resist spending.

Praying for daughter.

Lots of ice cream and cuddles are good medicine.

Thanks guys.

She did well, took about 5 hours (total time from entrance to recovery) and she was feeling groggy when she went home with mommy.

I talked to her last night (not supposed to talk for a week, but sounded the same as always) and she was doing well.

Doctor said her tonsils were full of debris (like an adults would be) and they hope that is what has been causing the fevers (since she was 1, she's been in the hospital 5 times with fever).
