NYC Strippers Scam Wealthy Men! Really?

I know this is going to be incredibly hard to believe but, according to an MSN News story, Federal authorities have arrested a “crew” of New York City strippers for a scam where they drugged wealthy customers and ran up ridiculous tabs on their credit cards. (I didn’t realize that a group of strippers is referred to as a “crew,” but that’s what the article calls them!)

Four men, said to be a lawyer, a banker, a doctor and financial executive, were allegedly “stripped” of almost $200,000 in the scam. The professional strippers (again, as referred to in the MSN story – so we wouldn’t confuse them as “amateur” strippers, I guess) are said to have spiked the customers’ drinks and then taken them to a couple different “dancing establishments” (my words there), where they were charged for a host of services including expensive food and beverages and hours of private room use.

The next morning, the men would find themselves either in their car or a hotel, with no memory of what had happened the night before and, when they started asking questions, the scammers said they would reveal that the men had been frequenting the strip clubs.

So, the real moral of the story? Maybe it’s just best not to visit those kind of establishments in the first place. Or, if you are going to visit one of those places, maybe it’s best to leave the credit cards at home…
