Question-- do these stars make and spend so much money that they don't notice unauthorized charges going back to 2005?????

501 years behind bars for stealing credit card info ?

That sounds like the kind of sentence Oksana Gregorieva should get, she stole a lot more than credit cards.

500 years for credit card theft, 15 for the average murder. What's the difference? In the former, the banking industry is the victim, in the latter, it's just some poor schlub's life. And we wonder who, or what, is really running this country.

God forbid you steal from rich celebrities who wouldn't even miss what you stole!
GOD FORBIDS YOU!

Instead, steal from hundreds of elderly people, who can't fight back and are easy to take advantage of, where the punishment might be a few months in jail.

501 years if they were to try each and every credit card charge as a separate case...WHICH THEY WILL NOT...Let's not get carried away here TMZ...the most this dumb azz lady will get is maybe a year, 3 max; and have to repay all costs. I can't for the life of me understand how someone would take advantage of "recession proof" clients in this economy...I build custom cars and if not for my "high profile" clients I would be out of business...

@ #11 - what's her last name have to do with anything? For all that, I can talk about The Enron scandal and say "well look at THEIR non-latin surnames". Or how about you Google "Reed Eliot Slatkin", "Peter Lombardi", and "James Paul Lewis, Jr.". Moron.

Jennifer Aniston's hair has no shine. It's so overly processed that it looks like hay for horses. She should go back to her natural brown hair. Oh wait, then she would look even uglier. She is sooooooo overrated.

How is it that for a credit card fraud a person is facing 501 years of prison and other MUCH more serious crimes, per example, pedophilia or murders are not as sevirely punushed?????
LAW - whether in US or Canada had always amazed me on how poorly is executed, and justice even less.... Just ask an abused victim or a mother that has lost her child because he/she was murdered.... Discusting...
I am not saying that the person who frauded the credit card should not be punished, they definetly should....
