Credit Card Found 25 Years Later -Underwater!

John Krayeski of West Palm Beach, Florida, was spear fishing in the waters off Singer Island, specifically at an artificial reef called the Triangle on Mothers Day. A responsible diver, he often picks up trash he sees underwater. On this trip, he picked up an old JC Penney credit card. Back on land, he read the name on the card: Jack Jacobs. He knew the guy!
"I said to my friends, 'We did an addition to this guy's house a while back," said Krayeski.

At his office, he compared the signature to contracts in his files.

Sure enough, the brown-and-white card belonged to Jack Jacobs, a Delray Beach caterer.

Jacobs' wife told Krayeski that they never had a card from JC Penney, but later Jack Jacobs called and said he'd lost that card 25 years ago, before he was ever married! However, he had no idea how it ended up a mile out at sea.
"I told John I'm going to drop another credit card in the ocean and he has 25 years to find it."

"Make it a gold American Express and I'll find it a lot sooner," Krayeski said.

Wow a JC Pennys card - Jack you big roller you.

Wonder how much the inactive surcharge fee, the under your spending limit fee, the you didn't pay your zero balance fee, the storing your card underwater fee, and the just because we can surcharge, added up to?
