Four New York City strippers allegedly drugged men and took their credit cards to run up over $190,000 charges on their credit cards.
Samantha Barbash, Roselyn Keo, Marsi Rosen, and Karina Pascucci allegedly targeted wealthy men in upscale New York City bars from September to December of last year. They drugged their victims with MDMA and ketamine, according to the New York Daily News.
They then took the men to strip clubs Scores in Manhattan or Roadhouse in Queens, left them in private rooms, and charged huge sums to their credit cards. They either had the men sign the receipts in their addled state or forged their signatures themselves.
The men would then wake up in hotel rooms, cars, or at home with no memory of what happened.
Dr. Zyad Younan, a cardiologist from Holmdel, was sued by the Manhattan strip club Scores for refusing to pay his $135,000 credit card bill, according to the Star Ledger. The other clients, two financiers and and a lawyer, were sent threatening texts when they disputed the charges.
The four strippers are being charged with conspiracy, grand larceny, and forgery.
