Millionaire Arrested After Allegedly Using Stolen Credit Card to Buy Pizza

DAVENPORT, Fla. -- A Michigan dentist -- who bragged his net worth was between $3 million and $4 million -- was arrested in Florida after he allegedly stole a college student's lost credit card and used it to buy two pizzas, the Orlando Sentinel reported Sunday.

Harrun Majeed, a military veteran and college student, dropped his credit card Saturday evening in a parking lot in Davenport, Fla., about 40 miles southwest of Orlando.

He soon realized the card was missing and called his credit card company to cancel it, the paper said.

When a company representative told Majeed that someone had used the card to make a purchase at Mia Pizza Pasta Kitchen -- in the same shopping center where he dropped the card -- Majeed called police.

Polk County Sheriff's deputies went to the restaurant and found Richard Lewis Ludwig, 54, waiting for two large pies with extra olives.

Ludwig, a Michigan dentist visiting Florida for his son's baseball tournament, admitted that he found Majeed's card in the parking lot and used it to pay for the $40.64 bill, police said. He reportedly had $250 in cash on him at the time.

When asked if he was facing financial problems, Ludwig laughed and said "absolutely not," according to police. He then told deputies his net worth was between $3 million and $4 million, the Sentinel said.

Ludwig faces credit card theft and forgery charges, as well as counts of impersonating and attempting to use the identity of another person without consent.

You can use the identity of someone else so long as you have consent?

John Wayne had it right. "Life's tough. It's tougher when you're stupid..."

I'll chime in. Dentists are probably the strangest group of people you'll ever meet. There are plenty of millionaire dentists and I really wouldn't be surprised if he did it just to see if he could get away with it.

This is ironic....I once found my dentist's entire wallet (with a few hundred in cash & CC's) right outside his office one night (next to a chinese food resturant, which is why my *** was there ). I did the opposite and returned it with all it's contents, which is why I am not a millionaire . The bastard didn't even give me a reward.....shoulda took the cash and left it infront of his office door

From my experience, one is seldom asked to confirm that you are indeed the rightful holder of a credit/debit card.

Around here you could borrow someone else's credit card with there picture on it and people will still run it threw. They never check ID's I wish they did it makes me think of what will happen if I loose mine one day.

Most stores around here do in fact check your ID and won't accept the card without one. Which is why I wondered.

My mother wrote "ASK FOR ID" in the signature line on the back of her card.

Any purchase over 25ish bucks and she gets asked for ID on a fairly consistent basis. Much more than I do.
