NBC Connecticut: A first date led to an arrest two months later after a woman used the man’s credit card without his knowledge to charge hundreds of dollars for a gift card, according to police. The victim and 27-year-old Katherine Stonick, of New Haven, had dinner at Finalmente Trattoria, on Post Road East in Westport, on Aug. 17 and he met with police on Aug. 23 after realizing she stole from him, according to police. The victim told police he was on a first date with a woman named “Sophie,” who police later identified as Katherine Stonick. After the victim paid for the meal, Stonick excused herself from the table to use the restroom and asked the manager to charge $300 to the victim’s credit card for a gift card, according to police, but the victim had no idea. Stonick then went back to the restaurant on Aug. 18 and Aug. 19 and used the gift card, police said.
HAHAHAHHHAHAHAH!!! This is what happens when you take a skag from New Haven and bring them somewhere nice. They don’t know what to do with themselves. She could’ve just taken the free meal, told the guy she had fun, and then never returned any of his text messages. THAT’S the American way. But instead she got greedy and started running this scam because she knows guys will do anything for the push-push.
I got two questions though –
- Did she honestly think she wouldn’t get caught? Like, was she banking on the hope that the successful guy she just met never checks his bank statements? Seems like a rookie move from a pretty shitty scam artist.
- How does the manager just let her add $300 onto the bill without asking him first? The card is in his name, right? So……this is just the policy of this fine Italian restaurant? They let anyone add hundreds of dollars onto your bill and charge your card without telling you? As terrible a person as she is, the restaurant is almost equally as fault by letting something like this happen.
The best part about this story is that she went back the next day, AND the day after that. She knew he was gonna catch on and she wanted to get her Fettuccine Alfredo before he figured it out. They can’t take it back once you’ve already put your mouth on it. That’s the rule. My question is, did she go stag when she went? Because that’s a pretty sad move right there – eating along at an Italian restaurant.
The most bizarre part about this story is that she’s not a junkie looking for her next fix. That’s what I assumed this was about. Chick gets $300 worth of gift certificates, trades them in for $150 cash, has a great couple of nights wandering around New Haven like a zombie. Not Katherine “Sophie” Stonick though. She’s not a drug addict, she’s just a broke chick who really likes Fettuccine Alfredo.
