A 13 year old plumber's son from Toronto, Canada is convicted of fraud after using his Father's credit cards to hire escorts.
A 13 year old from Toronto who stole his Dad's credit card and ordered two hookers from an escort agency, has today been convicted of fraud.
Peter Eglinton, a 13 year old from Toronto, Canada confessed to ordering an extra credit card from his father's existing credit card company, and took his friends on a $30,000 spending spree, culminating in playing "Halo" on an Xbox with a couple of hookers in a Toronto motel.
The credit card company involved said it was regular practice to send extra credit cards out as long as all security questions are answered.
The escort girls who were released without charge, told the arresting officers something was up when the kids said they would rather play Xbox than get down to business.
Police said they were alerted to the motel by a concerned delivery clerk, whom after delivering supplies of pizzas and Dr Pepper had been asked by the kids where they could score some chicks and were willing to pay. They explained they had just made a big score at a "World of Warcraft" tournament and wanted to get some relaxation. On noting the boys age the delivery clerk informed the authorities.
When police arrived at the motel they found $3,000 in cash, numerous electronic gadgets, an Xbox video console with numerous games, and the two local escort girls.
Peter had reportedly told police that his father wouldn't mind, as it was his birthday last week and he had forgot to get him a present. The father, a plumber said he had been too busy, but would take him on a surprise trip to Disneyland instead.
Asked why he ordered two escorts, Peter said he thought it was the thing to do when you win a "World of Warcraft" tournament. They told the suspicious working girls they were people of restricted growth working with a traveling circus, and as Canadian law does not allow those with disabilities to be discriminated against they had no right to refuse them.
The $1,000 a night girls sensing something up played "Halo" on the Xbox with the kids, instead of selling their sexual services.
Peter's ambition is to one day become a politician.
