Sharon Lavern Parrish, Jr. (a dude) scammed Apple employees 42 times to the tune of $309,768 worth of Apple goods. Dave Smith:
Parrish allegedly visited Apple Stores and tried to buy products with four different debit cards, which were all closed by his respective financial institutions. When his debit card was inevitably declined by the Apple Store, he would protest and offer to call his bank — except, he wasn’t really calling his bank… he would offer the Apple Store employees a fake authorization code with a certain number of digits, which is normally provided by credit card issuers to create a record of the credit or debit override… as long as the number of digits is correct, the override code itself doesn’t matter.
I suspect that hole is being plugged. How many digits was it?
