Staying at the Hotel on Our Dime!
I know many of you have vacation plans and here's an eye opener: Be very careful when you check OUT of your hotel because a homeless man spent some pretty lavish nights on vacationers tickets.
The guys name is David Price. He's been homeless for the past two years but NOT hotel-less! He stayed at the Ritz Carlton, the Hard Rock Hotel, the Portofino Bay Hotel, the Peabody International, and the Four Seasons in Miami!
Since June 2010, police have gotten reports of Price re-checking into hotel rooms. He would apparently watch a guest leave then go into the room and claim he’s that person. Once in the room, he would call the front desk and say he wanted to extend the stay, sometimes by 10 days.
The GOOD news is the folks he swindled using their cards have been reimbursed!
A few days ago, police arrested Price after he finagled his way into a room at the Hard Rock Hotel that was previously occupied by a hotel worker. Security officers knew the employee had already left so they called the police. Officers apparently found items from other hotels in the room, including The Peabody on International Drive and the Four Seasons in Miami.
Police reports indicate that investigators at Walt Disney World have also looked into possible fraud by Price.
SO....HE'S IN JAIL....SO HE STILL HAS A ROOF OVER HIS HEAD, AIR-CONDITIONING, AND FOOD....AND WE ARE STILL PAYING FOR IT!!!!!
