Actor James Woods nabs his own credit card bandit
Actor James Woods didn’t wait for his credit card company or the authorities to nab a fraudster who charged up thousands of dollars on his credit card — he tracked down the culprit himself.
According to the Daily Mail, the television and movie veteran who is currently the star of the “Shark” television drama discovered the credit card fraud after noticing several unauthorized purchases, including a computer, two VIP rock concert tickets and other miscellaneous items, were charged to his account. Drawing on his gumshoe skills most likely acquired by playing various characters (or perhaps his extremely high IQ), Woods called the concert ticket office to say that he had not received his tickets yet, and asked where they had been mailed. He was provided with the address of one of his favorite restaurants, then notified police who arrested one of the waitstaff. And I wonder if his sleuthing was all done in the standard 60-minute television time slot.
