I guess Dustin's first credit card didn't last very long. Did Shannon post "Dustins second credit card!!" the next day?

Did she post the photo of the other side too? which includes 3/4 digits security code.

Dustin's hypothetical FB post next day.

My credit score is screwed. Thank you Shannon.

Are we sure Shannon is a real person and not a sting operation? Oh, sure she appears like a real Facebook user with the misspellings (Dustins for Dustin's, your for you're), using extra vowels and exclamation points in a failed effort to prove the sincerity of her words, and of course the obsessive need to add emoticons to everything. However, no one is really that stupid, right? Ha ha, just kidding. I read the papers. Still, I could also believe law enforcement set this up.
