Man gives away £10,000 on his credit card

A internet boss projected an image of his credit card on walls around London and told passers-by they could use the details to buy anything they wanted.

He used a projector and generator to produce the 10ft tall images of his card on a corner of Kensington High Street and on the side of the Bank of England

While some people couldn't believe the offer was genuine, others quickly used the details to snap up a new TV, a day paint-balling, Christmas lights and a digital camera. 

Another person even used the card to pay off a parking ticket he had received ... while looking at the projection.

Bertrand Bodson, of - an online community for daring, boasting and bragging - who was dared by his own team to splash his cash said: "I felt like Santa giving out my money to Londoners."

"I was surprised by how many people thought it wouldn't be for real.  

"We wanted to give some Christmas cheer following a miserable few months, and hope that those who did buy stuff on us have a fantastic Christmas!"

The evening was cut short when police turned up and told the team to move on - but not before one person used the card to pay for over £7,000 worth of gadgets from the Apple store.
