Someone Cynned

At 3:57 a.m., Don Marcani said, Capital One emailed him, asking him to verify a $600 charge on his credit card that had been declined. But he didn’t see the email: the police had taken his phone. Marcani was arrested for grand theft after two credit cards declined his charges at Cyn Nightclub in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Marcani said he was trying to talk to Wells Fargo, which had also declined the charge, when a “cop interfered, and I think he said, ‘I’m tired of this [expletive]’.” Marcani asked to be escorted to an ATM, but he was taken to jail, where he spent the rest of the night. Then he charged a $1,000 bond to one of the same credit cards that was declined the night before, and was released. (AC/WTVJ Miami) ...Does your credit card come with arrest protection?
