MS on a CB
« on: July 22, 2015, 12:41:05 PM »
My friend asked me if he can spend ( and pay the bill ) on a cash back card, then refund the transaction and keep the CB/points/miles? (I heard this works on AA cards because the miles leave the bank to the AAdvantage account the moment you pay.T/F? )

I would advise against doing anything like this.

Additionally, while maybe a little different, i believe two brothers got jail time for doing something like this.

That's not MS
Regular MS methods would work, he can decide if it's worth it.
Iirc there was/is a DDFr named HelpMe who is very pro cb, you can try finding him for more info

There are plenty of ways to MS without having to get into questionable or outright wrong things to make some points/miles.

JMHO.

Good way to get banned from AAdvantage
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

If you want to steal money from a bank, there are more discreet ways.

I can get unlimited cash advances on any debit card. It doesn't matter the balance; usually you can get around 10K, maybe more if the time is right. All you do is go into the bank wearing a ski mask and hand a note to the teller saying "I want all the cash". 99 times out of 100, she'll just fill up a bag for you, no card swipe needed!
You do have to make sure to get out fast, though. Once word spreads, the cops try to shut you down.
