    Tech Grad: Strip Club Ripped Me Off For $53,000

    POSTED: 9:27 am EDT October 29, 2007
    UPDATED: 10:27 am EDT October 29, 2007


    FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. -- A father wants investigators to pursue fraud and larceny charges against a Panhandle strip club after his son ran up a $53,000 bill in a single night while celebrating his college graduation.

    Joe Salter, 52, of Mary Esther, told investigators Club 10 employees took advantage of his 24-year-old son, Tommy. The younger Salter was at the club Aug. 18 to celebrate his graduation from Georgia Tech.

    According to a report from the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, Salter told employees he could only spend $600. But Club 10 owner Tim Beal said Salter bought at least 19 bottles of champagne -- priced from $150 to $2,000.

    Beal said Salter signed a receipt for each champagne purchase and even scrawled his initials next to itemized charges. But the elder Salter said only the signature on the first receipt matches his son's.

    The sheriff's report alleges larceny and credit card fraud.

    Beal said Salter appeared to know what he was doing throughout the night.

    ''This fellow was lucid,'' Beal said. "He was actually dancing with the manager, Chris, right before he left.''

    Beal said he had already talked to American Express after Salter filed a complaint with the company, seeking to have part of the charge withdrawn. The company decided in Club 10's favor, he said.

    When you hand that credit card over to a strip club...be prepared for the worst. Done that twice...both times ended in fights with the manager.

    yeah it is NEVER a good move. In fact the last time I did it was the last time I went to a strip club on my own dime, I only got soaked for a few hundred bucks, but it was still crap. ****ing thieves.

    this kid had a limit on his card high enough to spend $53,000? Sheesh. I feel dumb if I spend $40 bucks at a place like this.

    i thought credit cards let you spend more than what you have, they just charge you outrageously for it.

    A credit card is a loan. Every card has a limit depending on your credit rating (the max you can have outstanding). This kid's dad is a baller cause $53,000 didn't raise a flag. For the majority of people the card would be maxed and/or frozen for theft around $10,000.

    He's an idiot for using the card. USE CASH AT STRIP CLUBS. Simple as that.

    I'd just like to repeat for those who didn't get the message, NEVER use a credit card at a strip club.

    I just don't get the appeal of strip clubs. Paying for a bunch of nasty money-hungry men-hating disease-infested skanks to give you blue balls while they steal your money.

    Yeah, sounds like a great time...

    That is one that I like about AMEX, you can always kick back a charge...You'll have to go to court for something this big, but yes, he was a moron...

    For $53k, dude should have had an orgy with 50+ strippers. But I bet he passed out with blue balls. I don't have faith in a guy who uses a credit card at a club. Screams TARGET.
