Patrick Gissentanner, a 22-year-old Riverdale man, recently posted several shots on Facebook detailing his recent extravagant trip to New York City.
While that sounds about average for most social media users, there was one major problem… Gissentanner used a stolen credit card from his job at an Atlanta area hotel to fund the trip and now his Facebook posts are being used as evidence in his fraud case.
Details about this flagrant ‘Facebook fail’ below…
According to the AJC, Gissentanner posted several photos and videos on his Facebook profile between Feb. 26-28 where he was sipping champagne, taking selfies and enjoying the sights of NYC.
Gissentanner was an employee at the Hilton Garden Inn on Georgia Lane in Alpharetta, when he allegedly stole a guest’s credit card information to book his own reservation at a New York City hotel.
The young stunt master reportedly used his real name and his employee discount to make the reservations. He even used his Facebook account to check in at the New York City hotel Feb. 26 shortly after noon.
A few days later, a guest contacted the manager at Hilton Gardens to dispute $633.35 in charges that appeared on his credit card statement from a stay at the Alpharetta hotel from Feb 25 to 27.
Bryant called police Feb. 29th to report that a hotel guest had been ripped off by one of his employees and when Gissentanner arrived home to Georgia on March 1st, he was arrested on charges of financial transaction fraud.
Gissentanner is currently out on bond and he’s been immediately terminated from his position at the hotel.
