Thanks for the reminder, Goldberg.
Heard he signed a deal and might wind up on TNA Wrestling.

10 years or so ago, my sister gets taken for about $5,000 in credit card theft, and just by what she thought was coincidence, she couldn't find her corldless phone. A week or so later, I'm in Chicago for a few months helping her out with some construction on her business. And she gets her phone bill and asks if I've been calling 1-900 #s, and I was like? So we checked the dates on the charges, and we realized it was while she was out of town and before I came to visit....
So now the Dude is on the case, I figure out that while she was out of town the fraudulent credit card charges coincided with these 1-900 calls, so I call the phone company, and as it turns out, there were a lot of calls made on her phone when she was out of town.
Long story short, we figured out that a guy who'd just moved in next door stole her phone and because it was cordless and his place was close enough to hers, he was using it as his phone for a week or so to call his Mom, his girlfriend, his job, the 1-900 #s, and thus, he probably almost certainly did the credit card theft as well, and to top it off, we told the landlord below us and he freaked out because he had a break in and some credit card theft at the same time. He was ready to kick this guy's that second, but we basically restrained him and said, "let's call the police first"
So I call the police, lay out all the evidence to the robbery detective... and the first thing he asks is, "Does my sister do drugs?" And I'm like? She has an MBA from Harvard for crying out loud, she ain't a crack whore... I worded it a little different, but I said no, she doesn't do drugs... Then he asks if we have a grudge against the guy, and I said he just moved in, I've only seen the guy once.... and then he goes, "well, all you really have on him is possession of stolen property, the phone, and he could've found it outside or something, And he hasn't made any calls in the past few weeks, so there really isn't much we can do."
And I'm like Dude, I just handed you a near air tight circumstantial case without even looking into the bank connection (The money was taken from an ATM)...
Anyway, the landlord hears about what the police said, he goes ballistic, and the next day, he beat the crap out of the guy and dares him to call the police (which he didn't) and the guys job was at Fed Ex, not exactly a place you want a thief working at, and he called them and got him fired, so the guy definitely paid for it, but no thanks to the cops.

Practice at the range a lot too. Get good enough so you can knock these creeps down without killing them, so they can feel the pain and think about what they've done while Bubba eyes them up in the can.
