Never do this — unless you want big debit card problems

Shelby Harding’s kindness led to big debit card problems — 250 of them to be exact.

She allowed a friend to use her debit card for a stay at a Super 8. The hotel and local police say the friend caused a commotion at the property and smoked in the room. Now Harding is being charged $250 to clean up this mess. And she would like our advocacy team to help get her money back.

But is she owed anything other than a life lesson that you don’t use your debit card to book a “friend’s” hotel room?
