Chief Justice hit by credit-card fraud

Credit-card fraud can strike anyone, anywhere. Ask Chief Justice John Roberts.

Roberts usually uses a credit card to buy his morning coffee at his local Starbucks in suburban Maryland.

But on Tuesday, when he needed to be extra sharp for the arguments that day over California’s ban of same-sex marriage, he had to pay in cash.

Seems someone had gotten his credit-card numbers, he told the cashier, and he was obliged to cancel the card.

So be careful out there.
