    Some people are just the lowest scum on earth.

    "The maintenance man at a Gainesville apartment complex has been arrested after police allege he found a tenant either dead or dying and, before calling 911, used the man's ATM card to withdraw more than $600.

    Police did not learn of the theft until three weeks after the man's death on July 1, when the tenant's brother called to say that on the day of his brother's death, ATM charges were posted against his Bank of America account minutes before paramedics arrived."

    Speechless. Rock bottom.

    Yeah. Seems like the dead guy had to of given him his card & pin #, etc to pay other bills. Certainly a heinous violation of trust/understanding and selfish missapropriation of $, but I'm wondering what that chargable crime is, if you give someone access to your cash.

    Or if the guy was like my dad, he had the pin # on a small post-it on the actual card :no: God love my dad, but hope his wallet's never stolen.

    I despise thieves as much as killers.

    I believe it would still be theft if you gave them access to a certain amount of your cash and they intentionally took more. If I give a restaurant server my credit card, it doesn't mean they can take as much as possible. They can take the amount that I authorized.

    You mean you haven't seen the video of some scum bag that puts a lady using a walker in a choke hold just so he could rob her necklaces? Very disturbing video.
