$2,000 Debit Cards Used at Louis Vuitton

I predicted this would happen.

Profiteering ghouls have been using debit cards distributed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina – intended to buy essentials for evacuated families – in luxury-goods stores as far away as Atlanta.

“We’ve seen three of the cards,” said a senior employee of the Louis Vuitton store at the Lenox Square Mall in affluent Buckhead, who asked not to be named. “Two I’m certain have purchased; one actually asked if she could use it in the store. This has been since Saturday.” Two women who had made purchases with the card each bought a signature monogrammed Louis Vuitton handbag in the $800 range.

The distinctive white cards were distributed by the Red Cross and the Federal Emergency Management Agency and carry a value of up to $2,000.

Just wait for it…the Left will claim that these people deserve to use government assistance to purchase $800 handbags, because it makes them feel good and not “less than”.

Unbelievable. I’m outraged by this.


  1. What might be going on is that the original card recipient sold the card at less than face value because they are limited in what they can buy with it (i.e., no booze, etc.).
