A California teen figured as long has he was using stolen credit cards, why not go on an all out spending spree. So, he ran the credit to the max with an expensive sports car and a luxurious home.

Mohannad Halaweh and a friend were living the life of luxury renting a $250-thousand sports car and a $12-million vacation home.

Part of the Halaweh's undoing was in the fact the car he "rented" was actually stolen, making him not only the perpetrator but the victim of a crime.

Crazy thing is, this wasn't the 19-year-old's first time getting caught using stolen credit cards. If this proves anything, it's some criminals are really dumb and crime doesn't pay, especially with stolen credit cards.

What I want to know is, how did he manage to steal credit cards with such high limits?
