Home / Credit News / Martin Shkreli's Credit Card Leaked on Twitter

"Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli has made a lot of enemies since it was announced last year that he raised the price of the AIDS drug Daraprim from $13.50 to $750 overnight.  One of these enemies was apparently sly enough to rip off Shkreli's credit card information and then proceeded to post it online via Twitter.

In response, Shkreli tweeted on Sunday night that "Anyone using my leaked credit card is being backtraced and prosecuted."  

It's highly likely that Shkreli made a quick call to his credit card company and canceled the card before he even responded to the identity thief on Twitter.  In addition, credit cards provide 100 percent protection from fraudulent purchases, so Mr. Shkreli should come out of this whole identity theft experience completely unscathed.

As for the security fraud charges he faced in December 2015, to which he recently plead not guilty, the final outcome for Shkreli might not be so rosy.
