    Guy bought a brand new tele at GC, put it on his GC card and is now selling it just to get the cash.

    I can't imagine being so broke that I would do something like this. He also doesn't have any idea that he's not going to get anywhere close to his asking price. Maybe $400 tops if someone takes pity on him.

    It seems like everything is okay now but it would seem he is obviously intending to defraud guitar center. If he manages to sell this one he will buy another tomorrow. Repeat until card fails.

    I know some people who think a credit card is money in the bank, basically you spend it all.
    Then pay outrageous interest rates.
    On the other hand, not everyone have disposable income

    Is he not aware that he's going to have to pay the card off?

    Doesn't GC have a return policy? He claims to have bought it yesterday.

    GC card is possibly stolen. He has no intention of paying them off.

    He's using the GC card as an ATM card, he apparently has no source of cash and needs cash in a hurry

    if they gave him 12 months 0 interest he may be gambling that he can pay it off by then.
